i agree with you here WD. UM-Pitt in volleyball last night was a fun game I randomly caught on ESPN3, and I will follow them now into the sweet 16.

It's a small sampling with only 3 sports that have finished. Princeton happened to place in all three (including top 5 in field hockey), like us. All it means is we are off to a good start so far. Schools will move towards their normal place as the athletic year goes on, but our teams are performing at a very high level across the board and this reflects that. It's not that important in the grand scheme, but it's something that acknowledges the work our student-athletes do and we should be proud.

Volleyball is in sweet 16. Men's soccer made it to the 2nd round.... womens swimming is currently ranked #2, men's is top 10. wrestling i believe is ranked around #5.... men's basketball top 5.... women should make the tourney. gynmastics is perennially top 10. 

 

For Michigan to ever win this thing and unseat Stanford, we need to get a lot of points in the sports Stanford doesnt score in. Men's Basketball, Hockey, etc.

for those who don't follow softball closely... even the non "power" schools you see on this schedule like James Madison, USF, and Lehigh are among the best mid-majors.... this schedule is insane.

Speaking of tickets, I'm trying to decide between Neb, Wis, or PSU. Any word on which one will most likely be at night?

Not sure if it was posted, but Michigan finished the B1G season with 12 Conference championships. This is the most any B1G school has had in a single school year, equaling Michigan's record amount of titles also won in 2004-05. 

Mgoblue.com highlights the championship teams and individuals, other impressive perfomances, as well as Michigan's 358 Academic All-Big Ten student-athlete awards.

If this wasn't already posted, it probably deserves its own thread.

We have a substantial lead on amount of users (+700), but what must be our weakness is we have less average star power than the other contenders. I am guessing this is because we got going a little later in the game?

(Territories): Avg. Stars [users]

Florida (23): 1.975 [1173]

Nebraska (23): 1.896 [1163]

As a teacher/chaperone or a student? If student, you began posting here as a very young person. Kidding though, my first visit to DC was also a school trip, as a kid, and i love it there. 20 years later there is still a huge list of things to see each time I go.

My dad recently passed on a prized family possession to me-- the flag that draped my grandpop's casket for his service in WW2. He served in the navy and toured around Japan. He and his best friend both made it home safely with minor injuries and shared so many stories of their time with me, including my pop meeting my grandmom when he came back for treatment.

I could be wrong, but has a Michigan team had this little power in recent history? I would like to see how little home runs this team has compared to the past.

05/20/2018 - 1:25pm They can be really effective

They can be really effective if they can consistently chop it really hard into the ground... but it takes a lot of skill. From my viewpoint as a bystander following the team, Michigan has forced previous power hitters into this role because of their speed and the need to fill this made up role.

We should try to get some midweek games in during the B1G season with Notre Dame. They were a bubble team as the 2nd best team in the ACC.... so it could help us both out. They can replace EMU. I'm pretty sure MSU and ND do it, so theres no reason we couldnt. We are really limited beyond that, though with options. Pitt/Louisville?

I can't believe no one in our lineup has adjusted to sitting back on these grapefruits this pitcher is sending into every one of them after giving them 2-0 counts nearly every time with drop ball after drop ball in the dirt.

I was just messing around. I enjoy your insight all over the board, including softball. 

05/14/2018 - 8:36am Like others have said, great

Like others have said, great regional draw. Making supers was always this teams ceiling without great pitching depth or reliable hitting, so the chance to get some experience, possibly in a super against #1 Oregon will be perfect for our young squad. 

Also- who was it that said I was crazy that Michigan would be treated as the highest 2 seed and probably go to Kentucky?!?!?!? ;-)

I'll root for Iowa to shock everyone and win the title. Wouldn't mind Indiana, either. Let them steal a bid to the NCAA.

05/11/2018 - 9:56am Updated BIG Bracket

12:00 #2 Minnesota vs #7 Wisconsin

vs

2:30 #3 Indiana vs #6 Illinois

 

4:30 #1 Michigan vs #8 Michigan State

vs

8:00 #4 Northwestern vs #12 Iowa

 

The Iowa-OSU game was crazy. It looks like our RPI will get no help, though. I was reading on another forum, most people believe that Michigan will be treated as one of the top #2 seeds by the committee no matter what happens here on out (A few still believe if Michigan wins the B1G Tournament, the committee would consider them for the 16 seed). They have done it in the past with teams that are known to be extremely dangerous with their ace pitcher but have a lower RPI.

I have a strong feeling we will get paired with a 3-seeded Notre Dame (The RPI match up almost perfectly for this) and go to whichever team is in the 10-16 range of #1 seeds close by. This sets up a Kentucky-Michigan-Notre Dame regional, which the committee has booked a million times.

05/09/2018 - 1:13pm Looks about right. Side note:

Looks about right. Side note: I just noticed we are playing a nonconference game @MSU today at 3. 

05/09/2018 - 9:05am This happened I believe 2

This happened I believe 2 years ago also. IIRC, #2 seed Minnesota beat us in extra innings... I remember it being at Penn State's field. They should just start it Wednesday like the SEC and have the Championship alone on Sunday. Or either reduce the field or expand it to all 14 teams and give byes. 

If the keys are completely in Beaubien's hands for the remainder of the season, as I suspect they will be, no break might be better. In softball, it might be better to just keep throwing straight through rather than have a break.
