College World Series Games Recap

college world seriesThe College World Series (CWS) kicked off in Omaha yesterday, and although both games wound up blowouts, both came about quite differently.

In the Texas Christian versus Florida State opener, the Horned Frogs erased a 1-0 deficit three hitters into the game and wound up with a five-run first inning in their 8-1 victory. Florida State had a few rallies snuffed out, including one in the fourth inning when the first two hitters reached base.

But TCU’s Matt Purke got a double-play ground ball and a strikeout to escape the jam. After that, the Seminoles had pair of runners on in both the seventh and eighth innings but failed to score.

Best Rivalries in College Football

When I was in school in Gainesville, there wasn’t a bigger game than when the Gators played Florida State. Except when we played University of Georgia on neutral territory, aptly nicknamed the “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.” Even in recent years when both the Seminoles and the Bulldogs have been no match for the Gators, those games were still the highlight of the season, if only for the ultimate bragging rights.

ohio state michigan rivalryI recently came across a poll ranking some of the biggest college football rivalries, and above all others, Michigan and Ohio State were the clear winners. This game attracts national interest because most games have determined the Big Ten Conference title as well as the Rose Bowl match ups, and have also influenced the outcome of the national championship. ESPN ranked this game in 2000 as the greatest North American sports rivalry. Hands down, everyone agrees on the Number 1 spot, but there is a lot of discrepancy on who else should make the list. I did some research, and then asked some sports fan friends their opinions. This is what we came up with.

1. Ohio State vs. Michigan – Ohio State players get a gold charm in the shape of a pair of pants if they win. Since 1913, the two teams have combined for all or part of 70 Big Ten titles and have finished 1-2 in the standings 15 times since 1968. Read the rest of this entry »
