Here is Part two of my 2010 college world series predictions, this time, taking a look at the intangibles that are often the determining factor in a team’s championship run.
Baseball is a game of numbers. There are unofficial stats for literally any split you can imagine. Do you want
With their championship lives on the line tonight at the Staples Center in LA, the Lakers will have to find an answer for Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo.
This weekend provided some of the most exciting college baseball I had seen in a while with many games going into extra innings as well as some major upsets down in the state of Texas.
We all make mistakes, but it is our responsibility as human beings to be responsible for those mistakes. If you have a drinking problem, take care of it, but don’t use your alcohol abuse as a shield for fending off accusations for your mistakes. Just say, I did it, I’m Sorry, I am fixing my life and move on.
In a three game series, literally anything can happen. A team can hit a dry streak and what was once a 50 win season can turn into nothing more than a “thanks for showing up” and a pat on the back. Unfortunately, the best team does not always win in these short series’ which is what makes it so interesting. You pray that your team can maintain the momentum that got it this far because every team they face from here on out is top tier.
The field has been narrowed down to 16 teams, and after this weekend (weather permitting) we will have eight college baseball teams punching their tickets for Omaha. The College Baseball Super Regionals are a best of 3 series, with the higher seed hosting the lower seed. The weekend series’ will determine who gets a trip to the College World Series and a shot at the national championship.
Allen’s hot shooting in the first half created a comfortable distance between the Celtics and Lakers, the NBA’s two most recent champions. But it was Rondo’s consistent play in the second half that maintained that margin and allowed Boston to tie the series up before heading home for two more.
After a relatively mundane weekend in college baseball, most of the super regional slots are filled. Arizona State had no
The Celtics got straight up embarrassed in game one. Kobe ran roughshod over the Celtics D which had been stalwart up until this point. Garnett got off to a slow start and Pierce, despite scoring 24 never looked comfortable. But tonight HAS to be different for Boston if they want to have a chance in this series.
