Vandy. Would never cheer for Michigan to win any type of championship. 

Stay golden, Ponyboy.

I’m okay with ttun winning it all in baseball, but it won’t happen. The one thing they are great at is almost being great.

Vandy all the way. As always, scUM can eat a big one...or a small one. Doesn't really matter as long at they eat it.

Doesn’t matter really. As long as Beals is at Ohio State we will never even sniff making it to the College World Series.  Vandy will keep getting players from Ohio and Michigan will continue to finish above us in the Big 10 standings.

You do remember that Ohio State beat TTUN in the first round of the BIG baseball tournament and then went on to win the tournament, right?

You do remember Ohio State took 3 out 4 against Mythigan this year right?

Fuck eSECpn and fuck Mythigan.

And you guys do remember that baseball is a 56 game season, and we play 24 conference games right? Head to head means absolutely nothing. Our average finish under Beals is 7th in the conference. We have the 4th best program in the state of Ohio, despite being the biggest school, the most well funded, and having the best facilities in the state. I can’t imagine you guys are ok with that?

Nailed it. I just watched TTUN dominate Vandy in game one. And yes, they dominated them. That's not to say they'll win it, but part of me wants them to just to show the OSU administration that baseball shouldn't be an afterthought, especially with our resources. For God's sake, OSU is great in volleyball, where the Pac12 should win every year. Louisville sure as hell isn't that much drier than Columbus in the spring, Corvallis and Bloomington are meteorological messes 24-7, and somehow, TTUN is pulling this off and it isn't a fluke. Makes me sick. Still, go Vandy.

I survived Cooper, and I hate Tai Streets.

Actually, the Buckeye baseball team did quite well against Michigan towards the end of the season. So, do we root for them to make us look better or do we root against them because they are who they are?  Or do we root for Michigan because Vandy is an SEC team?  If someone hates the Big Ten, would they really root against Rutgers because they hate the Big Ten?  Does Vandy or Rutgers really bring out hate in anybody?  I do not think so.  Are they relevant in the Big Ten or SEC?  Not really.  So, basically, I could care less who wins.  GO BUCKS!

I’ll root for Vanderbilt, but my gut tells me Michigan will win it all. Even after we beat them 3 out of 4 this year. I guess I’ll have to root for Skip Bayless’s school.

Will NEVER root for that school. Vandy fan for a few days is a small price to pay to see them fall short in another sport.

Vandy. Big.  Like TTUN starts having positional players trying to pitch because it is 37-0 and they ran out of relievers.

I want TTUN to win the first game...then barely lose the next two.  So close to winning it all, but chokes in the end.  Screw Michigan.

And Game 1 goes to the Bad Guys, 7-4.  We'll see if Vandy can outsmart them tomorrow...

All the shots of Juwan Howard make me realize the Stink Weasels will most certainly have the tallest coach in Big Ten hoops next year.

Who cares, does anyone really follow baseball on this site, will never root for SCUM despite being in big ten, Gives them something to continue to feed their delusion that they are relevant and they are not and have not been in quite awhile...Now they will be a baseball school since Belein left?!

HS

Agreed with this point of view.  College baseball?  I could see enjoying a game -- especially with the beer specials they used to have.  But I have not a bone in my body that cares about college baseball as a whole.

All of that said, Vandy I guess?  And that's just to avoid the 1-2 conversations I'm likely to have with a UM fan, who has never watched a college baseball game before this week, about what diehard baseball fans UM has.

Hate to say it but this TTUN baseball team is on a different level.. They've REALLY came on to end the year and they're going to win the series in 2, IMO.

Not a UM fan by any means but far more tired of the SEC being repeatedly crowned kings/queens of everything sports. B-1-G B-1-G B-1-G...go our conference!

Go ahead and root for Vandy. I mean, your two favorite schools must be:

  1. Ohio State
  2. Whoever is playing Michigan

But yeah, for sure this is a lot of fun to watch as a Michigan fan. Michigan is now a

  • football school
  • basketball school
  • hockey school
  • softball school
  • wrestling school
  • baseball school?

All kidding aside, I love what Coach Bakich has said about diversity in recruiting, and I love the respect and the friendship he has with Coach Corbin at Vandy. I love that the kids have (so far) been classy in how they have played the game. I'm on pins and needles, because honestly, I don't know that Michigan has the pitching needed to win one more game. We'll see what happens. And enjoy rooting against Michigan!

Fuckers are totally gonna win it too, if anything positive can come of it at least their glory will be partially tainted knowing the majority of fans still prioritize football and know they still have been dominated for going on 20 years. And maybe OSU will learn that they can still be competitive nationally in baseball if they give it their due diligence.
I do respect the classiness that the UM team has shown thus far and the determination they have to win for the conference as a whole.
I alway love an underdog story, I just despise that institution more.

I'm wholly incapable of rooting for TTUN to win anything, unless said contest is directly related to their suckery

Normally I'd root for the B1G team but not in this case. Vandy all the way.

I get it, the rivalry never sleeps and knows no boundaries and all that.  But this is a pretty big deal for B1G baseball.  The conference hasn't sniffed a title in over 50 years.  It is unfortunate that it is TTUN in the spotlight here, but ultimately this is a good thing for baseball in the B1G/Midwest.

This might come across as sour grapes, but as for a Michigan championship being good for the Big Ten or for Midwestern college baseball in general, I really don't think it's going to amount to much more than very temporary bragging rights. It's huge for them, don't get me wrong, but there are simply too many disadvantages compared with the Sunbelt schools for this to amount to some kind of permanent place near the top of NCAA baseball. 

But it's going to help them a ton in the context of Big Ten baseball.

I'm not talking about this being a permanent change to the landscape of NCAA baseball.  Nor really was I referring to it in the context of being something meaningful in the eyes of the media or the average sports blog forum poster.

However as an ex-player from this same demographic, I can say that at many times due to the history and overwhelming odds against you, that it feels like the B1G/MAC/A10/Horizon whatever are more like an FCS level than FBS.  To make a football comparison.  So things like Kent St. making a CWS appearance a few years back, and now this improbable TTUN run helps restore or build a belief that it is possible.  I mean I hope OSU can look at it and say we beat these guys straight up, why can't that be us?   Deep down I think the majority of all northern/midwestern programs are not setting their goals and truly believing they have a legitimate shot at a CWS title.  This could help change that mindset.

Did not hear any SEC SEC SEC chant by Vandy fans. Too much class. But there’s that  damn Vandy whistler. So happy for Vandy.  Every mother in Middle Tennessee wants her son to play for Tim Corbin.  This one is for Donnie Everett.

Well, in some ways it was a no-lose situation.  If TTUN came through (ha ha) it made the conference look good (I guess) and we could say to SEC people "Good grief, you let that bunch of losers in Ann Arbor beat you?!"

Since Vandy won we can say to your favorite TTUN fan "You're not even a baseball school."  #embarassingTheConference

That TTUN coach "saved" his ace for tonight instead of pitching him last night.  How'd that work out for you, Genius?!
