Friday, April 23 (4 PM) Pitching: LHP Cade Povich (3-1) vs. RHP Mason Erla (3-2, 3.02) TV/Streaming: BTN & FOX Sports App Radio: Husker Sports Network   Saturday, April 24 (2 PM) Pitching: R

MSU has the ability to tank our RPI, hope we get out the brooms again. 


Today should be a wake-up call to anyone that believes a B1G team deserves to be ranked and before you say we can't win them all first ponder that MSU had 3 errors in the game. I've said to friends and now I'll say it here. At this point in the season, with zero out of conference games, no (not a single big) team deserves a ranking. Michigan losing at home and Nebraska unable to win with the opponent putting up 3 errors. 

 

Now, hopefully both NU and Michigan correct things and get series wins.

You seem to be very concerned how NU compares to the rest of the country and NU’s chances in the NCAA tournament. I agree that is the long-term goal and getting NU back to that level of baseball. However, this is basically Bolt’s first year. He didn’t have a complete rebuild, but he has the team playing a lot better than previous years. Winning the conference would be a great “first step” for the program under Bolt. Then the next few years, we can look for NU to be competitive in regionals and beyond. Even Van Horn’s NU teams took a few years to get over the hump nationally.

Gave this a champion up mark.. Very good post. Agree completely with your statement. My point is, there's husker fans on national sites (like D1 Baseball) screaming about Michigan being ranked and Huskers aren't. We all know there exists a national bias against us (wink) (wink)... Husker fans need to be behind the team and let them (the team) do the talking for us. This "if Michigan is ranked, we should also be ranked" is garbage. We should just keep hoping our boys win series.. 1 at a time and let destiny reveal itself. We as fans, well... we should cheer them on, positively support them and not go out tooting our own horns.

Glad you took my post so positively. I agree it’s frustrating that the Big Ten gives a rat’s a$$ about baseball, especially coming off Michigan’s run to national runner-up in 2019. Hopefully NU and Michigan can push each other for the conference championship this year and make some noise in the regionals. At least those 2 fans bases will be happy watching.
