  • Last night, after the Reds sudden loss, I turned over to the Indians game and watched the Tribe bat in the top of the 8th.  This was an inning which shows why baseball is in trouble, especially with younger fans.  The Indians sent 8 guys to the plat…

  • Not one person mentioned Megan before David Saylor announced her.  I think the first two names on your list would be good, don't know the third.  Our job should be more attractive than it was when we got Duffy, so maybe our AD has some top applicant…

  • We are playing 2 major buy games this year.  It seems pretty obvious that David Saylor is using these big paydays to help finance our athletic department. Our university recently gave the athletic department a 10% cut in financial support.  It would…

  • We are in mid-April and Christian Yelich already has 8 HR'S.......against the Cardinals.

  • This is a very, very far off thought - and I am not saying I agree with it or disagree with it - any thoughts on Blasi being retained in an assistant capacity?  The reason I bring this up is because of his and Berg's relationship as both players and…

  • If Tiger can come back, so can Miami Hockey  ;D Yes, but lets hope it doesn't take that long.
  • Buzz Williams leaving Va Tech has created a local buzz.  Our local super star, Andre Gordon of Sidney ( coached by former Miami point guard John Willoughby) signed with Virginia Tech in November. This could get interesting if Andre Gordon reopens h…
  • This is a fun thread to bring me out of hiding. Miami was any first choice, and I got wait listed. So, I had to consider my other options. Wittenberg, if my dad got his way, would have been my backup. But, I would have most likely ended up at Aubu…
  • This will be a  challenge for Castillo as the Dodgers have some great offensive stats, especially vs righties.  Bellinger has been the best hitter in the majors so far.  Generally, the ball does not carry well at night in LA however, so that favors …
  • No disagreement. I won't be shocked if this hire comes from the current staff.  Possibly.  We had 3 really good assistants.  The time when you hire from within is when you have something good going and you want to keep everybody together  and keep d…
  • I used to live ten miles from Philo and it was enough of a pain in the ass to get to Philo from ten miles away that I can see why we aren’t recruiting there I spent a couple of night in Philo ( bike trips) and you can't get there from here ( unless …
  • In his last start Jacob de Grom tied Bob Gibson's record for consecutive quality starts ( I think 26).  Today, in his effort to break the record, he got drilled, giving up 6 runs in 4 innings to the Twins and leaving after 4. Tonight DeGrom only wen…

  • NKU coach, John Brannen, to replace Mick Cronin at UC Well, since we now play NKU and we no longer play UC, this is good for us.
  • the best teams does not always win Well overall, I think it’s safe to say the best team won this year. I was referring to UMass beating Denver; I do agree that Duluth is deserving of all their success.

  • This was not like being offered the job at UC or even Indiana, this is a top 20 team in a big city with a big following and a big salary.  It is a Catholic school ( she went to Chaminade and Notre Dame).   From Marquette, probably the only places sh…
  • It would have been a much better game if Denver had made the final.  They were better than UMass, but the best teams does not always win.  NCHC is dominate in hockey, even more so than the SEC in football.

  • Took game one 15-2. In game 1 Jr Pitcher Spencer Mraz took a no hitter into the 8th inning and BG ended up with just 1 hit.  Last Miami no hitter was in 1980.

  • They are obviously much improved and better than they have been for many years.  Are they the best in the league?  That is still to be determined.  Both Ball State and Central seem to  be pretty good.

  • I will make this three in a row.  I only applied to Miami and never seriously considered anywhere else.  My Dad was a Miami alum ( classmate of mlb Hall of Famer Walter Alston). My Aunt who lived next door was a Miami grad.  I had two first cousins …
  • UMASS in OT 4-3 >:) I stayed up for it.  Refs passed up calling a 5 minute major on UMass with maybe 2 minutes to go in the game and both announcers, after looking at the replay, called out the refs for changing the way they had called the game…

  • Denver scored with a little under 4 minutes to go and we are tied at 3.
