...or we could have played a hell of lot better and made the end of the season series a non-event.  We should never have been in this position.

 

Of course... this is the obvious answer.  However, we didn't... and that didn't change the fact that we still had a chance if they played.

What a sucky way for the season to come to an end, I knew that Thursday night L to MSU would prove costly but I never imagined that both Maryland & Purdue would 'screw it' and both advance to Omaha. It's B.S. Oh well, NU had numerous chances to not be 10-14 and 23-30 overall. Sucks to suck.

 Not many honors for Husker Baseball from All B1G Team.  Emmett Olson 2nd Team Starting Pitcher and Garrett Anglim All Freshman Team At-Large.  Brice Matthews won the Sportsmanship award.  Probably why the team didn’t fare well this season.

Rutgers should have been selected.  Texas finishes 5th in league play and gets to host while Texas State won their conference and split with Texas goes to Stanford the overall #2.  Methinks TV plays too big a role in tournament pairings.

There is the rub. The all mighty Texas vs. Rutgers.

Their resume sounds eerily familiar.   A team, not a historical power.  A down conference.  Very few wins against at large teams.  Very similar to a 2017-18 basketball team.

My initial thought was Rutgers should have been in, but I dove into their resume and it was a no brainer to leave them out. They played 1 top 50 game in the non-con and lost by 5 runs. They played 1 top 50 team in conf and that was Maryland and they went 1-2 at home. Their other opportunities in conf against top 100 teams were Michigan and Iowa, they went 2-5 against those teams and lost both series (one at home). 1 top 50 win isn't gonna get you off the bubble. If B1G teams want to make the tournament in baseball they're gonna have to start scheduling like it, some of these schedules are pitiful.
