In talks to play our mid-week series against Air Force at either Westside or Creighton Prep.

Any news on if we can get that series in?  It seems like it's been a month since we played.

I have not heard since then.  It would be cool to do some charity stuff (water or food collection) or a 50/50 raffle for flood victims if we do play.

Going to have to make a run and string together quite a few wins if we want a chance at an at large this year. Unfortunatly, the Big Ten is looking pretty mediocre.  Our first 3 Big Ten opponents currently have a combined record of 12-41.  We need to go 7-2 or better in those series for RPI purposes.

Hopefully,  we have our rotation figured out.  Matt Waldron, Fisher, and Perry.  Curry in mid-week games.  Hopefully,  Luensmen and Schwellenbach are healthy.  We'll need them.  

 

Curry is out for a long time

Wow, looking over how our offense compares to some other big ten teams in things I deem to be important in college baseball.  Things like Total bases per k.  K's per home run, Stolen base success rates etc.  It is downright pathetic.  Erstad clearly does not understand analytics very well, and clearly is not recruiting the right type of players.  Striking out a lot and hitting for no power whatsoever is a a horrific blend of ingredients.  

 

Indiana 5.46 K per homer  Nebraska 26.4

Iowa total bases per K 2.17  Nebraska 1.33 Grasp that for a second.  1.33 total bases per K

6 for kst is wearing a belt buckle, never seen that before.

 

Old school, all my baseball pants needed belts until like 1977.

 

Then it was polyester pull overs and a snap with a wide elastic waiste band.

I have Iowa at 1.53.  Illinois is at 2.17 tb/k.  We are now at 1.43.

 

On the flip side our pitchers are shutting down the other teams.  18.37 K per HR.  1.37 Total bases per k.  5th in the conference in both areas.  We are 3rd in throwing runners out trying to steal.

 

A couple other stats.  We lead the conference in bb/9 at 3.14.  I like us throwing strikes.  This next stat shows how different the game is now.  We are 9th in the conference with 8.33 k/9.  I would have thought that would be top 5 for sure, if not near the top.  The next series could be rough as PSU leads the conference at 10.31 K's/9.
