05/04/2018 - 8:32pm This team is really gelling

This team is really gelling into a quality team. Beaubien is a workhorse and will be relied upon to get us deep into the playoffs. As long as the bats keep going, we should be fine. Just keep taking every one game at a time and hopefully we can make a deep run. The future is bright with this squad.

What a game. Girl has ice water in her veins. Future looks bright when she wears shades!

02/09/2018 - 4:55pm Thank you. It was fun

Thank you. It was fun coaching her throughout her career. Travel ball was a blast. Wanted her to play for Michigan (and follow in my wife and my footsteps), but the UP competition is not quite there. Still proud to see her playing. Lots of long drives planned from the Yoop to watch her play.

02/09/2018 - 4:51pm Good luck to your daughter.

Good luck to your daughter. Stay healthy.

02/09/2018 - 1:59pm The best thing about Beaubien

The best thing about Beaubien is that she is getting ahead of the hitters and making them guess what is next. She is overpowering them with the fastball and then comes back with an unbelievably knee-breaking change up. She sounds like a keeper!

Also, liking with the offense is doing. They are getting clutch hits when needed. Last season’s offense seemed to stall last year, at times, and had trouble generating runs. Hopefully, they can keep it up and consistently hit from top to bottom.

02/09/2018 - 1:21pm Listened to the game. Blanco

Listened to the game. Blanco sounded shaky at times. Beaubien has some gas! We might see the youngster as the workhorse, as the season progresses.

Glad softball is back! My daughter is pitching for Albion College this Spring and will start her season next week. Go Blue and Go Britons! In case anyone cares, here is an article in the newspaper that ran on my daughter last week. http://www.ironmountaindailynews.com/sports/local-sports/2018/02/for-th…

Remember watching Michigan Football Saturdays on tv with my older brother when I was around 10 in the 70s. Grew up rootin’ for Michigan and got my dream when I was accepted to Grad School at U of M. Got the bug and it never left me.

Joe Milton. Harbaugh declares the QB spot a meritocracy and everyone gets pissed off, decommits on the same day and leaves us with Joe Milton scratching his head and wondering, “What the f#@& just happened?” Milton then goes on and wins the Heisman and the national championship over Ohio State 66-0, after completing only 3.6% of his passes. He immediately declares for the NFL draft, signs an agent and becomes ineligible, saying “What the f$#@ just happened?” and leaves us searching for Rudock 2.0.

Good job Eastern! 2-0 on the season. Nice to see them back from the abyss.

05/15/2017 - 9:01am We are in pretty good shape

We are in pretty good shape in the draw. Our toughest competition will be, obviously, Washington. If we get by them, we will play the winner of, most likely, BYU or Utah. Those are definitely winnable games for Michigan. Getting through those, puts us in the WCWS.

Our nemesis, Florida, is on the other half of the draw. Unfortunately, if they get through their regional round, they could run into Minnesota in the Super Regional. Is it too much to hope for a Michigan vs. Minnesota WCWS final?

Overall, this is about the best Michigan could have hoped for in there draw. It would have been better if they could host a regional, but I am much more optimistic than right after their loss in the Big Ten tournament. Betsa needs to be on her game and the hitters need to NOT have one of their famed games where the bats completely shut down.

Go Blue! Let's take this thing.

The Whitens kid is from a town 30 miles away.  North Central is a small UP school that now has the longest winning streak in the country. Two consectutive Class D state championships and still in the running to get their third.  Good story behond that program, but Livers easily deserves the crown.

03/20/2017 - 1:54pm I would have to say

I would have to say Baasketball.  Winning the Big10 Tourny was a crowing achievement, but they further cemented it by beating Louisville.  The football team, although they had a good season, did not get into the Big10 champtionship game, the CF playoff or gain a win over Ohio State.  Any one of those would have evened it up.  Give the love to the basketball team.  I guess a near death experience can do wonders for your motivation.

1st game was close and loss to a very highly ranked team. Good game that lasted to 3 extra innings. I was fine with the international play rule (I have coached games that went that route before and it really does speed up play). Betsa had troubles early, but locked down the latter innings. Major problem was stringing hits together. Betsa was a beast that will carry us far.

Tough loss in Game #2. We do need a second quality pitcher to get us through tournaments and doubleheaders. In the second game, hitting again proved to be a problem. We were able to string a few more hits together, but couldn't come up in the clutch. Blanco had more problems keeping the ball in the yard. Two games she has given up big HRs and extra base hits that have hurt her. Hopefully, she will be able to work on those issues. Otherwise, Crockett may see some action in the future.
