Jammed pack day of sports!

Jammed pack day of sports!  Theme of the day, rain, rain go away!!  However, it did make it easier to keep up with all that was in store on this busy Saturday.

US Open managed only one men’s semifinal completion as Murray took out Berdych in four sets.  Ferrer leads Djokovic 5-2 in first set that will resume tomorrow morning.  Could this be Murray’s chance to finally win a Major??  Again this year the men’s final will not be played until Monday.  Women’s final between Serena and Azarenka will be played tomorrow afternoon, postponed from tonight due to rain.  I am picking Serena.

College Football has been exciting and yet predictable.  The teams that were again playing cupcakes like FSU vs. Savannah State had their way.  No one should have to pay to see a game like that.  Welcome to the SEC for Texas A & M and Missouri.  Florida managed to escape with a hard fought victory over A & M in College Station, TX, 20-17.  In the first half, Missouri is holding its own, tied with Georgia 3-3.

Georgia Tech seems to be handling Presbyterian so far, as well they should.

LSU, USC, Oregon and Alabama all performed (or are performing as in the case of LSU) as they should.  Oregon may be the fastest team in the country.

BMW Golf Championship has seen Mickelson make a huge run and he is currently tied with V J Singh at 16 under.  Mcllroy and Westwood follow at 15 under.  Adam Scott and two others are right there at 14 under and Tiger stumbled slightly but is still hanging around at 13 under.  Should hopefully be an exciting finish in the final tournament before the Fed Ex final in Atlanta.

Stay tuned, the day is not over yet.

Georgia Tech wallops Presbyterian 59-3.  Was that Vad Lee’s name I saw on two touchdown scores??  One a two yard run and the other a 82 yard TD pass!  The future did not spend the whole game on the bench.

Georgia ahead of Missouri in the 4th quarter 27-20.  Number 8 Arkansas (with starting quarterback out with injury) tied 28-28 with University of Louisiana-Monroe and headed to overtime.

Update: UL-Monroe upsets Arkansas in OT 34-31.  Went for TD on 4th and one.  WOW!

Whatever the outcome of Missouri-UGA game, both Texas A & M and Missouri look ready to compete in SEC!  That being said, Missouri is now imploding and Georgia is going to win big,  Game was closer than score will indicate.

Tomorrow will be another full day!
