It's visually pretty odd looking to see a Big Ten team in a serious baseball game.

Pretty odd seeing IU in a meaningful sporting event of any kind that's nor soccer or basketball. Epically bad at every other sport historically.

Geez, Alex Bregman looks like Johnny Manziel. Just another reason to hate LSU.

There seems to be an abnormal amount of Cardinals fans working in sports television.

Haha, Manziel with the critical error that allows UCLA to beat LSU.

IU v Miss St about to start. IU wins and they have 2 chances to beat Oregon St or Mississippi St again to get to the final. Huge game tonight.

That park is absurdly huge. Dude just crushed a ball and didn't even reach the track.

Uh, swimming and diving? National Champions in 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972, and 1973. Dude named Mark Spitz?

They had a really good team too with Will Clark, Raffy Palmeiro, Jeff Brantley and Bobby Thigpen in 1985. I thought they won that NC that year, but I guess I was wrong.

Amazingly, Bobby Thigpen batted cleanup on that team.

UCLA wins game one (best-of-3) about 30 minutes after the Blackhawks won.

Today was definitely what Ice Cube was rapping about.

Yay! I'm happy with this outcome! Would have been fine with State winning as well, but this is fine too.

Oh, and they've got to bring those walls in. That place was obviously built with the old bats in mind. The bats have changed. Move the damn walls in. Only 3 HR the entire 28 game tournament. That's stupid.

Man, I can't believe a baseball team I root for won a World Series. What an unbelievable run the past few weeks have been.

Tracy Smith is a good coach. He was the head coach at Miami when I was there, and they went to a CWS and had a few guys drafted pretty high.
