The big story is the Tigers as they finish up a couple of games in Miami against the Marlins and look ahead to the playoffs…maybe with Oakland. It’s been near 90 in Miami this week. The Marlins have lost 100 games. Only Houston has more losses. Both the Cubs and White Sox finish last in their divisions. Kind of a quiet football Saturday with both Michigan and Michigan St. have a bye week. Many teams are getting two bye weeks this year. That can be both good and bad…more prep. time, a recruiting trip, injuries have another week to heal, but it can slow down your momentum (and you waste a good football weekend weatherwise on a day like today). The bigger TV games for us are #14 Oklahoma at Notre Dame at 3:30 PM – that game is on WOOD-TV. This evening, I’ll be watching my alma mater (Wisconsin) try and upend Ohio State in Columbus. That game is on WOTV4 at 8 PM. Central is at North Carolina State at 3:30 PM on ESPN3. Western has a good chance to get that first win of the year, taking on Kent St. at home. That game is at 7 PM on ESPN3. Grand Valley is at Ohio Dominion…that’s a school with 23, 464 students against a school with 2982 students (Hillsdale has 1200 students and Lake Erie 1300 – they’re like high schools in terms of numbers). Hope is undefeated so far this year and on the road against Illinois Wesleyan. Last we have the Detroit Lions playing da Bears. That’s the usual 1 PM start on FOX. The Sunday night game on WOOD-TV/NBC is New England at Atlanta. NASCAR is in Dover, Delaware Sunday afternoon on ESPN. Leave a comment if I missed anything that you’re interested in.
