Georgia Pine Smells Good and MSU Looks Great: Women’s Golf Advances to NCAA Championship Finals
May 10th, 2017 by Jeffrey Lubeck

Georgia Pine Suits MSU Fine

The MSU Women’s Golf team seems to excel when playing in the neighborhood of the Tall Georgia Pine. Continuing its trend of solid play under pressure MSU advanced out of the Athens, Georgia Regional to the 2017 NCAA National Championship Round to be held in Sugar Grove Illinois on May 19th-24th. A full recap is [here].

Meanwhile the Detroit Tigers of MLB continue their West Coast Trip, taking on the Snakes in Phoenix.  Detroit beat Arizona 7-3 on Tuesday night with newly designated Closer Justin Wilson pitched a perfect 9th – although not a Save situation.  The Tigers are 3rd in the American League Central 1.5 Games behind Cleveburgh.

MSU Women’s Softball (seeded #7) takes on Indiana tomorrow to begin the B1G Tournament Championship.  The game will be broadcast on BTN at 4:30 PM (EDT).  The background story is [here].

For the first time in decades, no Red Wings in the NHL Playoffs.  However, there is a Game 7 being played with the winner advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals.  Follow [here]

    I think I can see the Green and the Flag Pin. If I can punch the ball through the gap to the right with my 5 iron, I could be golden. Hey, is that a tree root or a snake next to your right foot?

      The answer to the 2nd question will enable you to hit the 5 iron or lay back as you should with a wedge

    The ‘Bama team sprinted past them over the first 4 holes and the only thing weighing on their collective minds wa not playing poorly enough to miss the cut – That isn’t as easy as it may appear

    The annual updates to the NCAA Academic Progress Reports have been released. As it relates directly to MSU, the story is [here]

    All (23) of the MSU programs passed the .900/.930 minimum thresholds. Men’s Basketball was a perfect 1000 – as were Men’s Soccer and Swimming and Diving. Izzo’s squad is the only B1G team to do so and one of 20 programs in the country. The perfect score for MBB is for a 2nd year in a row. Baseball was lowest .965. Football was .974 – 10th in B1G.

    There were 17 schools that did not make the grade. The story is [here]

      Last season MSU had a dearth of 4s & 5s because of two injuries. Now there are, what, seven guys to choose from?

      Gonna need some extra popcorn for 2017-18 MBB-watchin’, it seems.
