Just for a quick national title update, the SEC has won 4 team national titles this sports season out of a possible 33 team sports. There are still 4 titles to be decided (Softball, Baseball, Men’s and Women’s Outdoor Track and Field). The 4 champions are:
AUBURN (Men’s Swimming)
TENNESSEE (Women’s Indoor Track and Field)
GEORGIA (Women’s Gymnastics)
Also, the SEC has had 4 runners-up:
KENTUCKY (Rifle, did anybody know about this?)
ALABAMA (Women’s Gymnastics)
ARKANSAS (Men’s Golf)
GEORGIA (Women’s Swimming and Diving)
Now, Florida is playing in the championship series in softball (lost Game 1 last night to Washington), LSU and Arkansas are perenial powers in men’s and women’s track and field, and Florida, Arkansas, LSU, and Ole Miss are all in the super-regionals in the baseball tournament. Meaning, if all things fall the SEC’s way, they could have 8 national titles out of a possible 37 total. Not to mention, I counted 11 sports (Men’s and Women’s Hockey, Field Hockey, Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse, Rowing, Skiing, Men’s Volleyball, Men’s and Women’s Water Polo, and Wrestling) that the SEC doesn’t even compete in.
1. Just in case you missed it, I held my own live blog on KSR this morning between 3:15-3:20AM. These 5 minutes were a ball of laughs as I allowed you readers to get inside my crazy little head. Topics discussed included: hair care products, GM bankruptcy, roulette strategy, and soccer. Take a look back.
2. Charles Barkley is at it again! First he calls Kenny Smith “numnuts”, then he calls the producer of the show a “pu**y”. All of course on the air. And considering it was TNT’s last show of the year, I would bet that Charles will not face punishment for these comments. Nor do I want him to, because he is just AWESOME.
3. Florida St. straight up embarassed Ohio St. in baseball over the weekend, 37-6. As ridiculous as that score is, take a look at the box score where weather conditions were listed as: “More hotter, sunnier, nicer” Sounds like a Michigan fan sabotaged the box score OR someone finally signed up for my 15-minute class” “BTI teaches you English good”.
