Cubs And Indians Making Baseball Fun Again

Over the last few years it seems baseball has slowly lost fans and viewers, but that sure is changing right now. I'm not a fan of either the Indians Or Cubs, but have found myself watching or listening to the games on the radio. Yes, I said listening to the games on the radio as well. That part takes me back to when I use to listen to the Tigers on radio all the time with Ernie Harwell. Boy that brings back alot of memories.



Both the Cubs and Indians have struggled to get back to the World Seris, but this season both found a way back. Suffering Cubs and Indians fans are delighting in the matchup, but so are the fans of baseball. Both teams are playing the game the way it should be played. You can thank manager of  both teams along with the players. It looks like baseball is back and the real winners are the fans of the sport.

Ohio State vs Wisconsin Big Ten Championship Preview?

Wisconsin maybe the surprise of the Big Ten along with Nebraska, but Saturday Night they have a tall order in front of them. The Badgers will be hosting the Ohio State Buckeyes the No.2 team in the nation. This game could be a preview of a future Big Ten Championship game if everything falls into place for both teams. Let's take a closer look at this game and who should win it.

The Badgers have two things going for them heading into this game one is a home crowd and they are rested. Wisconsin will have a rowdy crowd to welcome the Buckeyes on Saturday Night and playing up in Wisconsin at night is not an easy thing. Many teams have seen there playoff hopes dashed in this night game. Wisconsin will also need to play ball control if they want to stay in this game. Keeping Ohio State's offense off the field will be one of the keys. Ohio State has one of the best offenses int he country and can light up the scoreboard.

Ohio State must remember to do a couple of things if they want to sneak out of Wisconsin with a valuable win. One of the first things is to not commit turnovers. If Ohio State does not protect the football they could be in for a very long night. The second thing they must do is not let the crowd noise or the aura of playing in Camp Randall Stadium effect them. If they do these things they should be fine.

Picking this game is tough, but I still like the Buckeyes in a close one 28-24. Ohio State is to good for Wisconsin right now. The skilled positions Ohio State is very good and they have an outstanding defense. I like the Buckeyes from the start of the season and so far they have proven me correct.

Michigan Could Be The Best Team In College Football

After watching Michigan play Rutgers you just have to shake your head. Yes, I will be the first to admit Rutgers is not a very good football team, and was over matched. The one thing I did take away from the game is Michigan could very well be the best team in College Football. Many people besides me are in the same kind of thinking. How good is Michigan really?

Well the one thing that makes Michigan so good is the defense. When you have a defense as good as Michigan you will be in most every game you play. This makes it so much easier on the offense and planning for games. Michigan is only giving up a little over 10 points a game. For the offense all they need to do is get two touchdowns and more times then not they will be winners. It makes it much easier for the offensive coaches as well.

No matter what anyone tells you defense wins championships and Michigan has a championship caliber defense. As long as the defense continues to play well Michigan will be a tough team to handle. The showdown with Ohio State could be the only test Michigan has this season until the playoffs roll around.

Are The Huskers For Real Or Is it Smoke And Mirrors?

When the Nebraska Cornhuskers were struggling last season many people wanted to see Mike Riley gone as coach, but what a difference a year happens to make. Nebraska lost a number close games last season, but the opposite has happened this season. Losing those close games has brought the team closer together, and coach Mike Riley has had a big part in making sure he did not lose the team.

This season the Cornhuskers have showed poise even after they made mistakes and it looked like things were going south. Give Riley and his staff credit for not giving up on this group. Another guy who has showed up big is Tommy Armstrong Jr. Last season he made alot of mistakes, but he learned from it. He has become the leader Nebraska has needed for a couple of years. How far can this group go?

In two weeks the Cornhuskers travel to play Wisconsin on the road. I feel this will give us a better gauge of how good Nebraska happens to be. Give the Cornhuskers credit they are playing good right now. Nebraska is rated No.12 and it has been a long time since fans could say that about their Cornhuskers. Only time will tell how far Nebraska can go, but at least they are headed in the right direction.
