congratulation to the entire team on one of the best seasons in many years and building a foundation for the future.

sorry tm. i know this doesn't belong here. just thought it deserved the additional exposure.

Pitching supposedly wins short series, and the HL chose two Titans for the only two league pitching honorees. UIC is good, but we have a good chance to do well.

Detroit was supposed to finish seventh in the league, came in second (hence Coach of the Year for John Conway). The team jelled at the end of the season, going 15-5 in April/May (including a no-hitter against Northern Kentucky) after starting off 13-20.

conway announced he will retire after this season. hate to see him go. your right about the pitching of course nct. still, uic will be tough. they beat us three times during the regular season and have 8 players with all league honors including poy. they have dominated the league for years. looking forward to this game! wish i had organized my time better. i would like to be there even tho i break out in a rash everytime i go to chicago!

Softball has been the most positive surprise of this season. It was great to see them hammer Oakland yesterday. Good luck vs UIC.

I drove to Chicago yesterday to be there. Back at work today, but I might go back tomorrow for the Championship if things break right today.

This team is everything you want: good kids, good students, good teammates. They love each other and are having so much fun. Playing hard but loose at the same time. UIC is a dominant offensive team, but we have better pitching this year. Even so, UIC will score some runs today. We are hitting better (3 HRs yesterday) and we need to put several runs on the board. Tough but possible...Conway's replacement will be an important hire.

BTW, UIC has a beautiful complex just off campus, with the Sears Tower/downtown in the background. They have Curtis Granderson baseball field, the softball field, several turf soccer fields, tennis courts and a building with several practice basketball courts, offices, training rooms and more. The only thing they don't have is a parking lot (you have to pay for street parking/2 hours at a time feeding the meter. This is all about 1/2 mile from the actual campus. State money: not fair. What are the chances of us sending a baseball player to MLB??

Since we don't field a baseball team, my Jesuit education estimates our chances to be pretty low. Practically nil.

CHICAGO (5/10/2019) -- The University of Detroit Mercy softball team is heading to the championship as the Titans defeated NKU, 4-1, in an elimination game to reach their first Horizon League Championship since 1998.

The second-seeded Titans will meet top-seeded UIC on Saturday at 1 p.m. (EST) as the red, white and blue will have to win two games against the Flames to reach their first-ever NCAA Tournament. UIC — which beat the Titans 8-0 in the semifinals earlier in the day — will just have to earn one win to get the automatic bid.

we will have to play better than we did yesterday to win these games. both games were marred by errors and walks. walked 10 uic hitters yesterday., 3 walks and three errors kept the norse alive, tho we finally prevailed. go titans! dont just be happy to be there!

With a one-run UDM lead, UIC came to bat in the seventh. First batter grounded out, second one struck out, and then two batters reached on singles. With the game -- and the tournament bid -- on the line Murphy struck out the final batter, swinging on a full count. Can it get more dramatic than that?

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Conway, the other coaches, and many of the players. Let me just say this is a TEAM by the truest definition. Great people. The kind of student athletes that NCTitan wants. A team of them. Play hard. Play for each other. Good students. Good kids. Love their coaches. Love each other. The Horizon Pitcher of the Year didn't play today yet she was cheering her lungs out for Liz Murphy, who took her place.They deserve this CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!. And Roger & Millie Buysse are smiling up in heaven tonight, I believe....
