Re: Bowl Venues Expanding ... again

The season is sports dead except for bowls...and football is still a draw...a minor bowl will draw more than a mid pack basketball match in what really is the basketball preseason...

Re: New Tranfer rules

Programs do not recruit just one QB for four years...they may have five in the roster...with a new hot shot arriving every year. Cane is right...kids that see themselves buried on the depth chart do transfer.... Or...you may get a Willie Taggart for a new coach...who's offense does not feature a ful...

Re: Softball NCAA Championships

Maybe, as "homers", we are too sensitive...but some things stand out... Jessie Warren ranks in the Top 10 in NCAA history for both RBIs and home runs. And yet, she wasn't a first-team All-American this season. And she's not a member of the U.S. national team either. Or even on the roster f...

Re: Softball NCAA Championships

Yeah....at FSU, us long time fans still remember a certain coach who left a #7 FSU off his ballot entirely....and his team was vying to make top 10. The AP was sometimes as bad....with writers from a region favoring teams that were of interest to their readers. Also were probably teams that they wer...

Re: Softball NCAA Championships

Now...this is crazy. Why have a poll that has a #1 in it when the matter is settled on the field...I can see ranking those that fell along the way to come up with the rest of the top 25. The Softball Coaches' Poll has just come out...Washington and Oregon each received a 1st place vote...despite bot...

Re: Bowl Venues Expanding ... again

Boise and Chicago have almost identical December temps for mid to late December.....too cold for a southern boy...highs of a few degrees above water freezing to a low of 23 or so average. My personal coldest was sitting through a bowl in 18 degree weather in my Florida winter wear (a London Fog wind...

Re: Bowl Venues Expanding ... again

Way..way too many meaningless bowls...The Mediocrity Bowl?

That has to be the Chicago Bowl...the 10th place ACC team vs a bottom barrel Big 12 team....in the Windy City in the winter.

at least there is no blue carpet.

Re: Softball NCAA Championships

and Meghan King was the most dominant pitcher to ever play in WCWS with a .20 ERA. Facing a 70 mph fastball from a rubber 43 feet away must give you the same recognition/swing time as a 100 mph fast ball from 60.5 feet. I took a bat 30 years ago against a men's fast pitch softball pitcher from a bar...

Re: Softball NCAA Championships

Yeah...I don't like the blabbing of the talking heads...although I found the explanation of the seams and the alternate pitching methods of the fastball too be interesting. But the ACC winning its first softball NC was the story line the last several games....Cinderella teams get the story line...ju...

Re: Softball NCAA Championships

Washington seems to be peaking at the right time...

It's all about pitching...and I hope that FSU has something left in the tank i that regard. Those 4 games in 48 hours might affect pitching more than hitting/fielding.

Proud of the gals..won four elimination games in two days....to the finals...Washington rested today while FSU played a second double header. They should have some advantage.

Re: Softball NCAA Championships

Well...the girls beat UCLA this afternoon...but have to beat them again in a couple of hours to stay alive...have to win to go to final...and beating UCLA twice in an afternoon-evening may be too tough....
