    2021 CWS discussion thread

    Vandy/Arizona has been a really good game. Arizona got three off Rocker in the first. Vandy finally took a 1 run lead only to see Arizona rally to tie it in the top of the 9th. It's currently 6-6 going to the bottom of the 11th. NC State pounded Stanford in the opener 10-4.

    Prielipp to have surgery

    It's being reported (by Kendall Rogers and Cecil) that Connor Prielipp will have Tommy John surgery Thursday. He will miss the rest of this year and all of the 2022 season as well. Hate that for the kid, and the team.

    Premier League 2019-2020

    The Premier League begins a new season today! Liverpool got off to a strong start with a 4-1 smashing of Norwich City. Winning the Champions League was better than winning the league but I think this is Liverpool's year to claim top spot and break the 30 year drought. I'm going to have to...

    CWS: game threads

    Not sure how much interest is out there but I'll be watching the games and thought I'd open a thread for the tournament. Opening games are today (times are Central): 1:00 Michigan v. Texas Tech 6:00 FSU v. Arkansas TT scores runs in bunches, I expect they'll beat Michigan - plus when was a...

    Sue Grafton "alphabet" mystery writer passes

    Sue, the creator of the Kinsey Millhone books, has passed. She was 77. Her last book was 'Y is for Yesterday' and left her one book short of having one book for each letter of the alphabet. I always enjoyed her books, especially the earlier ones. RIP Miss Sue, and Kinsey.

    Gregg Marshall episode

    Did you guys catch the blow up by Marshall while his team is playing in Canada? I think it started with a no call when one of his players supposedly suffered a concussion and he stormed the floor and got in the face of the refs. Naturally he was promptly ejected and has now been suspended for a...

    Game Thread: Game 1: USC @ UA

    The lack of a thread being started until the 5th inning tells you about the lack of enthusiasm among the Tide faithful. On to the game. Trailing 1-0 in the 4th, with 2 on and 2 out, Bramblett gets a fly ball to left that should end the inning - except the left fielder dropped the ball allowing 2...

    Game Thread: Game 2: Bama @ Ark

    Was on my way home from dinner when the game started with three consecutive walks. Stayed in the car to see if we'd make something of the gifts and following a strike out, Haynie hit a Granny to stake us to the early 4-0 lead. Cucjen doubled in two in the fourth. After 6 complete, Bama leads the...

    Bama posts an 8 spot in the top of the 9th, beats auburn 14-4 to sweep the tigers in auburn for the first time since the early 80's. A good weekend for our guys - a nice response to Gaspard's comments following last weekend sweep by the pigs. Some positive momentum going into the Vandy series.

    Game Thread: Bama @ UF - Game 2

    Well, glad we won game 1. The Gators strike for 5 runs on 7 hits in the bottom of the first. I think Carter was pitching, err maybe throwing is a better description, for us. Long way to go. Going to the 2nd, 5-0 UF.

    Question: 2014 Iron Bowl DVD?

    Has anyone heard any talk about the possibility of the University making a DVD of the game available? It would make a great present. I have several folks on my list that would like to find this under the tree, or a note that it would soon be forthcoming. I DVR'd the game but I'm not technically...
