Baseball vs Northwestern

Northwestern isn’t really very good at all.  They have a 3-16 BigTen record (12-34-1 overall).  Michigan is playing and praying.  We need Purdue to lose at least two against Illinois at home.  We must take care of Northwestern.  If Purdue wins two we’re done.  If they win one, we must sweep.  If they get swept, we must win 2.  We have to hope the weather works in our favor.  That is all.

No word on audio.  I’m guessing there may not be any.  I’m headed to Austin today to pick up my little sister and head to a funeral.  I should be back by Sunday to hopefully have a post on making the tournament.  We’ll see.

    Safe travels, Formerly.

    According to the Northwestern site, “Live streaming video of the first two games of the series will be available at NUsports.com.” I’m guessing a fee will be involved.

    Well now, let’s hope the bats stay alive for our Wolverines the rest of the weekend, hunh? Makes a pitcher’s life that much easier.

    Also, I discovered you can listen to the game here


    Too bad we apparently can’t trust the Illini to do right, since they lost to Purdue, 12-5. It’s a shame to have this all in another teams’ hands.

  3. Yeah, post coming out very shortly (I wanted to give Tim’s some time). The WNUR guys were the voices to the video and did a pretty solid job. Much better than the Michigan guys during the mid week, and slightly above Michigan’s normal non-Matt Fancett broadcast.

    Fetter just looks tired. Without the huge inning for us he was going to get the hook. Let’s hope Katz is ready and is sharp. May get rained out today with twin bill on sat. Go blue!
