    2019 St. Louis Cardinals

    Maybe some time away from home will help get the bats going? At least the rest of the Central isn’t lighting the world on fire either.

    Illinois St making a good showing so far.

    Illini Baseball 2019

    Seems like as good of a draw as we could ask for. Seems better than being @ #4 Georgia. Though Ole Miss is obviously a top program also. I don’t know much about Clemson and Jacksonville St.

    NBA / Illini in the Pros Thread

    Looked like he was dragging a little at the end of the 3rd period. When was the last time he logged these kind of minutes? Edit: looks like he’s getting a break now. Assuming Portland will want to ride the hot hand as long as it’s working.

    NBA / Illini in the Pros Thread

    Meyers Leonard getting it done tonight. Didn’t see the first half. Thought my son was pulling my leg when he told me Meyers had 25 pots at halftime. I don’t think he has scored in the 2nd half but, has several rebounds, a steal, an assist and a charge taken that I’ve seen.

    2019 St. Louis Cardinals

    It seemed like Cards had things going well until they went to Chicago and got swept. Haven’t been the same since.

    2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs

    Only got to see the last period tonight. Sounded like the Blues started out strong, got the lead early and held on for the win. These last 3 games should be something. Yes, I think it will take all 3 to decide it.

    2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs

    Would be nice to see but, I have a feeling every game could be tense to the end. Hopefully we can be on the right side more.

    2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs

    Tough to lose on a missed call but, the Blues really needed to finish it off in regulation. They had several chances to extend the lead in that 3rd period. Just couldn’t get one in.

    20 does seem like a stretch. I was 17 turning 18 as a freshman. Not a college basketball player but, they are still students right?

    2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs

    They almost seem more likely to give up a short handed goal than score on the power play sometimes. I believe tonight was the 2nd short handed they gave the last couple series. Dallas had several good chances I thought.

    2019 St. Louis Cardinals

    How long can we keep Carpenter in the leadoff spot batting .200? I know he had the day off today but, believe he was 0-5 in one of those 2-1 losses to Pirates. Seems like Fowler might be a better lead off option at this point.

    Only saw the score but, tough 1-0 loss to Michigan in 8 innings. Must have been one heckuva game.

    That was fun to watch. Exhausting but, fun.

    2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs

    Blues power play looked disorganized at best. Seemed like they could never keep the puck in the zone. Constantly regrouping. Credit the Stars penalty killing but, would have liked to see some more control and pressure on those.

    I would like to believe we are solidly in with a good RPI but, last year still lingers in my mind. Thought we had a good shot last year. Was not to be. Any case big win tonight to start the series. Fisher has really looked good.

    I feel pretty good having split with Brewers in the April games. Especially with the way the first 4 went.

    We have some work to do to get in the top 8 for B1G tournament. Need to rack up these conference wins.

    2019 St. Louis Cardinals

    I think we really need to consider pitching around Yelich. No matter what. Even loading the bases.

    Was thinking the same thing. That seemed to be the beginning of the end for our basketball relevance. I recall that some writer had us penciled in as a 1 seed before that game happened. Can’t remember the exact wording but, essentially calling it an award for multi year consistency.

    Nice win tonight at home vs Coastal Carolina. Only saw the last couple of innings. Looks like all of our offensive output was in the first inning.

    Virginia 85, Texas Tech 77 OT

    Speaking of Webber... I think he does a pretty good job as an announcer on the game broadcasts. There weren’t really any I didn’t like this year but, thought he stood out.
