The entire Big Ten Conference traveled to the Hammock Beach Resort in sunny Palm Coast, Florida for the conference’s match play championship.

Match play, compared to the more common stroke play, keeps track of the player who has the lower score on each hole rather than all holes combined. The player who wins the hole gets one point. Read More…

Sacrifice, a Hat Trick, and a Sweep

Before the game Saturday night, Tom Anastos entered the locker room, looked around at the players and slapped the Big Ten standings on the video board showing the team what was at stake.

Goaltender Controversy Nothing New for Detroit

Detroit Red Wings goaltender, Petr Mrazek, has proved efficient in the place of Jimmy Howard, who has missed the last ten games since a slight groin tear against Washington on Jan 10.

In ten games, Mrazek has gone 9-1, with a 2.54 GAA (goals against average) and a .913 save percentage. With Howard being activated off of injured reserve following Detroit’s 3-1 win over Arizona last Saturday, the expectation was that Howard would start tonight’s game in Pittsburgh (8 p.m. on NBCSN). However, head coach Mike Babcock has decided to give Mrazek the start and have Howard on the bench. Read More…

Sprint Unlimited Preview

Every year, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season kicks off with the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway. But what everybody forgets is that there is a preseason race about one week before the real season begins.

Wait, you are telling me that NASCAR has a preseason?

YES, that is exactly what I’m saying!  But this preseason is much different from stick-and-ball sports.   Read More…

Jason’s Journal: Disappointing

The Spartans just did not show up to play on Saturday. That is just the way it was. Whether it was the weeklong interval between games, the bus ride down to Chicago or the 100 minute delay, Michigan State came out flat against their archrival on a big stage with three very important points on the line.

What irks me about this game is not so much the fact that it was a loss, but more of how the Spartans played. The fact that Michigan State came out flat and cracked when the Wolverines applied pressure in the second period is disappointing to say the least, especially when they had a full week to get mentally prepared for the UM onslaught.

For those familiar with Monty Python and the Holy Grail (read: had nerdy parents/family members), you know the famous scene where the Black Knight refuses to admit defeat despite losing all of his limbs.

Well I can now admit that I am the version of the delusional combatant pictured in the film. Read More…

Free Throw Futility Pushing Spartans to the Bubble

After Michigan State’s latest in a series of disappointing loss, this time at the hands of the Illini, a berth in the NCAA Tournament has become less and less of a certainty. MSU has not been left out of the big dance since 1997, but this could be the year the streak is snapped. This fall from grace can be attributed mainly to atrocious free throw shooting. Read More…

Spartans Blown Away in the Windy City

The ice conditions were not perfect, which caused the opening faceoff to be delayed for a total of one hour and 40 minutes. Once the puck dropped, the Wolverines made the adjustments the Spartans did not.

After Michigan State derailed Michigan’s winning streak last week, the Wolverines found their mojo Saturday night under the stars at Soldier Field in Chicago. Backed by 31 saves from Zach Nagelvoort and four goals from four different players, No. 14 Michigan cruised to a 4-1 win over Michigan State. Read More…
