Monday Morning Links at VTM| Memorial Day; Nine T&F Athletes Qualify for NCAA; Baseball Beats Baylor


Thinking about Memorial Day. Nine track and field athletes qualify for the NCAA Championships. Baseball wins the final game of the year beating Baylor. Miscellaneous football links.

Memorial Day

Just a friendly reminder that Memorial Day is supposed to remember those men and women who died while serving this country, while Veteran's Days is to honor all individuals who served in the military. I always appreciate those who served, but it is also good to remember the dead who can't accept your appreciation. Think a good thought for those people that lost their lives. I had to scroll through 700 photos to find a good solemn photograph.

I am lucky as I don't personally know anyone that lost their lives while serving.

Odds and Ends

I am up and listening to the radio, which is what I normally do in the morning. And right now I'm listening to Yahoo! Sports and some guy that sounds like he is literally mimicking Colin Cowherd, a guy that refers to himself as "The Mighty Quinn". I wish this was a joke and it is horrible listening to him.

Track and Field

This was a really good recap from the LAJ, where there were five women athletes, four men athletes and two women relays that qualified for the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Oregon.


The baseball's season ended on Saturday with an 8-2 win over Baylor. The LAJ recaps the win. Head coach Tim Tadlock finished his first season as the head coach and went 26-30 for the year. I hope to have some more thoughts on the baseball team, but honestly, I always tend to think that it's better to think about next year after the MLB draft. There are a ton of players that have committed and not that many leaving, but I can't say that I understand how baseball and scholarships really work.


The big college football news from yesterday was that Notre Dame QB Everett Golson was no longer enrolled at Notre Dame, but I think this has changed to just not being eligible for the fall semester. SBN Notre Dame blog, One Foot Down, has good thoughts about this if that interests you.

RP continues their Critical 20 with #14 Bruce Jones.

RRS has their 2013 Spring Recap of Kansas St.
