WarrenNolan.com has Nebraska as one of the Last 4 teams into the tourney...
 
...which honestly doesn't make any sense considering Nebraska's RPI isn't bad (42--it went up a point since CHusk posted yesterday, I guess?) and they have Indiana going from not even projected to make the tourney (04/24) to skipping the bubble and being the third seed in the Louisville bracket. All while Nebraska is the third seed in the Oregon State bracket. 
 
I honestly think WarrenNolan mixed Nebraska and Indiana up, and Indiana was meant to be one of the 'Last 4 In' teams. There's nothing that's happened that should have downgraded their position since last week IMO. 
 
EDIT: Ah, I see--go to the Predicted Conference Standings for the B1G, and it has us getting third in the conference (With a predicted 41 RPI) and barely edging out Indiana, who will have a very similar record. That means they see us going 7-3 over our final games (and Indiana 5-1-1--really, they predict another tie for Indiana... :facepalm: ) which may mean we lose a series we shouldn't and hobble into the B1G Tourney.  :dunno
 
Honestly, can't argue with that prediction, considering there's precedent for this happening under Erstad. Here's hoping this year we break the trend and do some major damage.  :hellloooo

Its' interesting that Nolan goes to the predicted record before conference tournament to give his predicted field.  However, if NU does go 7-3 in the final 10 games, while that would put NU on the bubble, he still has NU in the field of 64.  I think that is in line with most of our thoughts over the past few weeks.  If NU goes 8-2 or better, NU should be safely in the field of 64.  If NU goes 7-3, it is getting close.  At 6-4 or worse, NU would be in serious jeopardy of missing out of the NCAA tournament.
 
I think finishing in the top 3 or 4 of the conference regular season, along with a top 4 finish in the conference tournament would get NU in.  It's gonna be a fun last month of the conference season.
 
 
I think that's a little too optimistic--if we go 6-4, Minny or Iowa are liable to jump up and steal our spot, especially considering the lack of separation between 3rd through 6th.

I said if NU goes 6-4, NU would be in jeopardy of missing the NCAA tournament.

 

 

Bah, you're right--I misread your statement. My apologies.

Wow.  I thought Maryland was farther ahead of us than that.  Must have only looked at wins - they have 14 to our 12 - and not realized they also have two more losses.

Also since we have a tie the winning percentage is a major factor.

Hopefully Erstad's squad can build more momentum in the final 2 series - especially with Penn State sitting dead last in the conf currently.  Mich State does have the 3rd best team ERA and 3rd best batting average...

 

We should still expect to go 5-1 (6-1 with the Creighton game thrown in).

So...I don't see this posted elsewhere or on schedules for Nebraska baseball, but I show that the Nebraska @ Creighton game this Wednesday will be televised on CBS Sports Network per DirecTV. Can anyone else confirm?

 

NM, I went to the CBS Sports Network site and confirmed. It's on TV tomorrow night at 7pm Central.

You're right, it's because it's a Creighton home game and NET got the first one at TD

Fortunately, Rutgers and Michigan State are within striking distance of making the B1G Tourney, so they have something to play for. That carrot could help them steal the games from Minnesota and Michigan, respectively, that we need them to. 

 

Still, our kids need to take care of business at Penn State this weekend. Hopefully the kids can get rested up and ready for the final stretch of the season.

A sweep gives us the regular season crown regardless of what ever anyone else does correct?

A sweep gives us the regular season crown regardless of what ever anyone else does correct? 

actually, if Minnesota sweeps Purdue, then they would have a better winning percentage even if Nebraska sweeps.  they play one less game this year because one of their games with Rutgers was canceled.

Does that override our series victory over them?

Yes because that would only be used in case of a tie.

So that tie is as good as a loss pretty much

Technically it's as good as half a win.

 

But yes, if both teams win the same number of games this week, it's as good as a loss.

 

However, if we win one more game than they do, it's as good as a win.

Here's a link to the standings. http://www.bigten.or...-standings.html

They would have a better % than us. The one game that hurts us in my mind is the Ohio state rain delay game where we gave up all those runs with 2 outs and lost. Hohenesse had to come out because of the delay and Waldron struggled that 1 inning

Edit: Mav worded it pretty well

I would say it was the loss to Michigan State on Friday. We were aware of what we needed to do to control our destiny. Win-out and no worries of ties. But here's to hoping we get Purdue to steal a game!

Yes, but asking the team to win out with 6 games left is a big ask.  I understand it was all in front of them, but getting a 3 game sweep in any series is tough to do, let alone winning all 6 games left in conference.

I'd agree if any of us were on the team.  What's the harm in mapping out different scenarios we could win the conference?
