Re: College Baseball

Oregon State's game against Washington last night was crazy. OSU won 14 to 5 but was close up to the 7th inning following a 4 1/2 game delay due to thunder rain. Then OSU's bats went wild. Washington eliminated and OSU has 1 loss. https://www.oregonlive.com/beavers/index.ssf/2018/06/college_world_se...

Re: New Tranfer rules

These two changes may not be so separate. A kid comes in with all sorts of promises (they all do) and hopes. They know they can play in up to four games without "penalty." If they don't get the opportunity to play in whatever number of games they think they should, might be a good reason t...

Re: Softball NCAA Championships

You know are a serious note I agree with you. The Warren woman was phenomenal and her omission is nuts. I do think rankings are media hype driven. When we were kids the one rankings that we use to watch and frankly the only one was Boxing. I can remember any others. I would read the box scores every...

Re: Softball NCAA Championships

Polls are American's obsession with ranking everything. When it is settled on the field, that is it. PAC12 schools are without socially redeeming value when it comes to this type of chicanery but in that poll still rank 6 places ahead of the schools from the South... Seems to me ranking is necessary...

Re: New Tranfer rules

I see this as a defensive move on the NCAA's part. They for so long have not represented the students that they have become a Monopoly. This will take that pressure off. I do not think it is a good thing for the student. They need to be able to transfer with greater ease...but schools will not make ...

Re: Bowl Venues Expanding ... again

Temperature wise that is correct. The Humanitarian Bowl against Louisville, some years back the temperature was 9 degrees, colder than a mother's-in-law kiss, well not that cold but cold...

Re: Bowl Venues Expanding ... again

Seems to me this is exactly the wrong direction. The PAC 12 is not allowing 5=7 teams to participate and as this article states, it does not go far enough. Where is the Mediocrity Bowl? https://www.deseretnews.com/article/900020775/doug-robinson-pac-12-bowl-rule-is-step-in-right-direction-but-doesnt...

Re: Softball NCAA Championships

Florida State has some excellent players. That Warren was phenomenal. The issue, I think with softball (which is not even close to being the same game as baseball...much more strategy in softfall) is the time you have to decide if you are going to swing. Much before the ball leave the pitchers hand ...

Re: Softball NCAA Championships

Congratulations. Florida State dominated every aspect of the game. Was a decisive victory. After the first inning, there was never a doubt who was in charge. (Because I would be remiss...if I had to watch another game with those announcers and commentators talk about the ACC. Was not biased, just ob...

Re: Softball NCAA Championships

Was quite a game. Have not seen hitters on both teams shut down like in this game. Good win.

Re: Softball NCAA Championships

Wanted Oregon to beat Washington. That was the must-win for all the non-softball reasons. Bats died.

Re: Softball NCAA Championships

A great CFP matchup. I have never been a great Oregon or Washington fan. Two most obnoxious West Coast fan base. Should be a good game. Rest in softball not as critical as in some sports.
