lol, the dice have come up against the M team for WEEKS. Every 3 days there's a "had some bad luck" explanation. Losing 80-20 rolls consistently, every 50-50 attack.

 

I'd have a stats guy look at the numbers

I'd like it if, when I hit the TAB key, a cold, refreshing TAB is dispensed from my computer. Also, can anyone tell me where the "ANY" key is?

I'm slowly getting used to the idea that my kids won't get in unless they are top 5% of their class, take IB and have started their own business/research project by JR year.

funny, no one complaining about the number of out of state students in this thread. In staters always had it easy.

This is a good point, it was easy to check on your own post history to look for new comments in threads you already commented on. What's the best way to do that now? Probably upgrade to the new MGo4.0

This version of the blog will eventually fall out of favor and now I'm left wanting to see your progress on MGoBlog 4.0

you are the worst. Not b/c you're complaing about not winning a NC a few years ago, when in fact, they got to the WCWS final and lost 2/3 to the B-to-B NC Florida team of the decade, but b/c you made me side with WD on this.

And that, sir, CANNOT STAND

05/14/2018 - 7:19am Much like football

Much like football recruiting, the current SRs enrolling as FR in the fall aren't the concern as much as 8-11th graders. Current SRs have been thinking about and even applied to MSU before the MSM starting reporting this MSU Nassar stuff. Early deciders send their deposites in around Jan. I'd expect next year and the year after to be a smaller class for MSU.

MSU likely anticiapted that for this year so that 2-3 years from now they don't have a few dozen empty dorm beds and 1-2 fewer sections of 100 and 200 level courses..

"...but it came against a really SOFT schedule.  They finished 18-3 in the regular BIG schedule, and 11 of those wins were against bad teams (Rutgers, PSU, MD, and Purdue).   OSU was the only team they played that will get an at large bid to the NCAA."

 

guys, he's right. This EXACT quote will be inserted into the B10 record archive next to, "2018 Big Ten Softball Champions"

I think this team has a bit of a better shot based on what Hutch siad - Pitching and D is the name fo the game and this team is the best in the nation and those two aspects in sum.

 

I would only be mildly surprized if they got to the WCWS, unless they beat one fo the top 3-4 teams like OU or UW (i thought the huskies were dominant this year?)

Can't wait for the season previews of hockey like the basketball guards post a couple days ago.

 

Also, Brain always feels like I feel, except those 2 times he didn't. 99.8% hit rate is still pretty good.

we lose a handfull of SRs, probably Hughes but gain more draftable talent than we lost? don't bother with the younger hughes, that's a pipe dream imo.

04/05/2018 - 8:22am Basketball is the worst sport

Basketball is the worst sport to watch due to the end of game TOs and the refs.

Sure, football has reff issues and so does hockey and even baseball. But only in basketball is there a call every 90s that you feel like could go either way. One head jerk from the VU PG and there's a foul, 2 mins later same thing is a no call. It's not evenblock/charge anymore it's just straight defense - you can't move to stay with a guy defensively anymore. can't touch him. but then sometimes you can.

thing about that CM dunk attempt - that was the cleanest block of that type I can imagine but you know you were expecting a call until there wasn't. DR gets 2 fouls for just being on the court.

That said, this wasn't a game decided by refs nor was it lopsided against M. that's just basketball.

hockey has 2-3 bad calls a game that are usually no calls which is what you'd prefer. and it's a much tougher game to call. football is the same but holding you could call every play. PI is tough but usually right on the field. Baseball is easy (except balls and strikes at very high levels).

04/03/2018 - 4:43pm I thought the Directos Cup

I thought the Directos Cup was calculated based on the farthest in the tourney you got, not AP rankings.

like this or similar:

Winner: 100pts,

runner up 75,

lost in FF: 50,

lost in E8: 32,

lost in S16: 16,

lost in R32: 8,

lost in R 64: 4

make the touney: 2

04/03/2018 - 11:24am I'm skeptical at this point,

I'm skeptical at this point, given that we lose DR and Rahk - esp Rahk - that dude has 1 TO per game playing 38 mins per game. I think the TOs go up w/o him taking up 38 mpg. That's not even accounting for Mo and or Mathews leaving some big holes offensively that this M team really needed these last 2 months.

 

Sure, it can happen but it's gonna be a very young team that will struggle with JB's offense, TOs, so let's hope the D stays where it si

03/30/2018 - 1:41pm I really don't see why fans

I really don't see why fans would want to drop the VT game. CFB recently seems to be polarized: big time games against good teams or body bag games. Maybe it's just the way M recent seasons have played out.

I'll take a VT game anyday. IDGAF if we might lose. go back and look at the schedules from the 80s and 90s. We'll still be playing Ru and Maryland and Purdue/IU/Minn/Ill 3-4 times a year if you want a locked in win
