How about that Michigan baseball team in the Sweet 16!

Recommended Posts


Love college baseball. My Cardinal took a tough L today in the first game of the Super Regional. Would be good to see M take down those nobodies from LA.

Michigan beat UCLA 4-2 in Game 3 to advance to the College World Series for the first time in 35 years.

 Kiezer puts the tying runs in scoring position in the 9th before getting the 3rd out. Henry goes 7 inning for the win.

Yep.  And to show just how much the college baseball world is dominated by teams from the South and West, in that 35 years only one other Big Ten team -- Indiana in 2013 -- has made it to the College World Series.   And as the CWS is effectively the Elite Eight of college baseball, the fact that so few Northern and Midwestern teams can make it even that far is telling.  So it's a very big deal that Michigan has made it, and beat the Number One ranked team in the country on its home field to do it.

Yeah that stat about the big 10 surprised me.  I of course knew baseball was dominated by Southern teams but I thought atleast some big 10 teams would have good enough seasons to make the final 8 here and there but obviously that wasn't the case.

So a College World Series, a Frozen Four and a basketball NCAA title game within the past 15  months. If the football team makes the playoff this year all will be groovy.

Still in the Winners' bracket after a spectacular pitching performance by Tommy Henry.  Just one win away from the Finals.

The last time a team that was not from the South or the West won it all was 1964.
