By the end of the fifth rotation, a national championship was not within reach for Nebraska. Stanford and Oklahoma were just too good on this night.

But the Husker men's gymnastics team had a chance to stick a big landing and finish off a year greatly challenged by COVID-19 the right way.

No. 4 Nebraska popped for a big score on its final event, vault, to shoot from sixth place to fourth place in the final team standings at the NCAA Championships on Saturday in Minneapolis.


No. 3 Stanford won its second straight national championship with an impressive score of 414.521. Top-ranked Oklahoma (411.591) was second and Big Ten champion and No. 2 Michigan (410.358) was third.

Nebraska, battling Minnesota for fourth, trailed the Golden Gophers by nearly five points entering the final event. The Huskers proceeded to reel off five 14s for a 72.098 on vault, NU's best event, to edge Minnesota 406.624-406.291.

Lacrosse Week 9

Maryland clinches an outright Regular Season Big Ten Title with a win over OSU. 

#2 seed Rutgers dispatched of Hopkins with ease, while Penn St edged the Wolverines by one goal in OT. 

.

Standings 
9-0 Maryland
7-2 Rutgers
4-5 Ohio State
3-6 Penn State
2-7 Hopkins, Michigan 
.

Week 10 is the final week of the regular season. The headliner will be between Ohio State and Penn State, with the 3 seed on the line. (one and two are already shored up) 

Apparently they are expanding the Big Ten tourney from 4 teams to all 6 just for this year, which seems strange during a pandemic. If true, then both Michigan and Hopkins will more than likely finish tied for last place at 2-8 since they are playing Rutgers and Maryland respectively to close things out. The Wolverines and Blue Jays of course went 1-1 against each other, and I have no idea what the next tiebreaker would be. Normally it doesn't get past Head to Head, since they generally play each other only once. 

Long story short: we might get a little bit of bonus OSU-Michigan action in the opening round. 

Should Hopkins pull off the unthinkable and shock Maryland in a "throw out the records" rivalry game, then they could maybe wrangle the four seed from PSU; assuming the Leos also lose to the Buckeyes. We once again would have the 1-1 against each other thing going on, but PSU and Hopkins would be playing each other no matter what in that scenario, regardless of which one is the 4 seed or the 5 seed. So it's just a minor technicality. 

I suppose it isn't all that far fetched that Michigan could also knock off Rutgers, which would really open up a Pandora's box of possibilities with regards to the various scenarios and tie breakers that would have to be sorted through. But I am venturing out into the weeds a little bit here, so I will leave it at that. 

Cheers,

5 of the top 6 baseball teams are in the SEC.

Florida is a little down, but still ranked.  We'll be better later than we are now.

Lacrosse Week 10

That was one helluva finish, with all three games being decided by exactly one goal. 

Mighty Maryland carries the unbeaten regular season across the finish line, by surviving a "throw out the records" rivalry game vs lowly Johns Hopkins 14-13.

Penn St continues their hex over the Buckeyes, with a 10-9 win that catapults them into the 3 seed. 

The Wolverines came oh so close to a monster upset over Rutgers, but ultimately beefed it in a 13-12 loss to the Knights. 



OSU-Michigan, Round 3! 

Winner gets to be completely horsewhipped by the Terps!

Maineville, Ohio - Kate Smith shot a scorching 64 (-8) to tie her own record for the best individual round in school history and capture Nebraska's first-ever Big Ten women's golf individual title on Sunday. With Smith leading the charge, the Huskers earned a tie for second with No. 19 Maryland and No. 25 Michigan to post their best team finish at a conference championship since earning runner-up honors in the Big Eight in 1984.
