  1. They had an 80-1 horse win the Kentucky Derby. The horse had better odds than Nebraska does of winning this game tonight.
  2. How do you hit the runner in the back of the head? This team has to be one of the worst Nebraska teams in the last 25 years. We are so fundamentally bad.
  3. We are dangerously close to using our last life. Michigan State looks so much better than us.
  4. Weak fly ball after weak fly ball by batters. Making a very average pitcher look like a Cy Young award winner.
  5. Let me revise my prediction. Nebraska finishes 7 - 17.
  6. We're in extreme danger of losing 2 of 3 toa team with 2 conference wins all year going into this series.
  7. I have us 5 - 10 in one run games. Switch that around and get us 10 - 5 and we are 24 - 20. In Big 10 play we are 0 - 4. Turn that around to 4 - 0 and we are 11 - 6. It's fundamental baseball. Make contact with the bases loaded and 1 out. Don't throw the ball 300 feet when you need to make a 60 foot throw. This point of the year, the excuse of youth does not work.
  8. We absolutely have to win tomorrow, take one from Illinois, and take the series from MSU to have a chance. I predicted the rest of the season. Here's what I have for everyone if everything plays out 1. Rutgers 18 - 6 (2 - 1 vs Mary and 1 - 2 vs Mich) 2 tie Maryland 16 - 8 (1 - 2 vs. Rut 2 - 1 vs Mich 2 - 1 vs Pur) 2 tie Illinois 16 - 8 (2 - 1 vs Neb 2 - 1 vs PSU) 2 tie Iowa 16 - 8 (1 - 0 vs. Pur 2- 1 vs. MSU 2 - 1 vs Ind) 5 Michigan 14 - 10 (1 - 0 vs Ind 1 - 2 vs Mary 2 - 1 vs Rut) 6 Penn State 12 - 12 (2 - 1 vs MSU 2 - 1 vs OSU 1 - 2 vs Ill) 7 Nebraska 11 - 13 (1 - 0 vs Minn 1 - 2 vs Ill 2 - 1 vs MSU) 8 Purdue 10 - 12 (0 - 1 vs Iowa 2 - 1 vs NW 1 - 2 vs Mary) 9 tie Indiana 10 - 14 (0 - 1 vs Mich 2 - 1 vs Minn 1 - 2 vs Iowa) 9 tie Northwestern 10 - 14 (0 - 1 vs OSU 1 - 2 vs Pur 2 - 1 vs Minn) 11 Michigan State 9 - 15 (1 - 2 vs PSU 1 - 2 vs Iowa 1 - 2 vs Neb) 12 Ohio State 7 - 15 (1 - 0 vs NW 1 - 2 vs PSU) 13 Minnesota 5 - 19 (0 - 1 vs Neb 1 - 2 vs Ind 1 - 2 vs Minn) I think 12 wins gets us in. We have to win the Illinois series or sweep MSU. I could see Indiana sweeping Minnesota. That gets them to 11 wins, they hold tiebreaker. Northwestern could sweep Minnesota possible. Gets them to 11 wins. Good news they play Purdue, so if they win series. It would move Purdue to 9 wins.
  9. We deserved that loss. We'll be at home watching the Big 10 tournament.
  10. The 8th inning is why we are so bad. Our SS boots the easiest ground ball ever. Then, we have the runner picked off 1st with runners at 1st and 2nd. Everitt throws the ball to Lincoln. Allows both runs to score. He could have rolled it to Gomes at 1st and we still could have gotten the runner. In the top half of the inning, we get a gift with Minnesota loading the bases on 2 walks and a HBP with 1 out. The next two batters strike out. All you have to do is make contact, but we do what we do best and strike out. Now, we allow Minnesota to tie it in the 9th when the game should be over. And, the Minnesota pitcher has not allowed us to do anything.
  11. I wonder what the odds are he makes it to campus.
  12. We have to sweep Minnesota and Michigan State if we want to make the Big Ten tourney.
  13. Do you still get an earned run if the umpires are morons?
  14. Bragg with a hard luck 10th. Gets squeezed to the 1st batter on what should have been strike 3, and he bloops a single. Then the slowest roller ever to left.
  15. I'm hoping someone blew a kiss to Rosario, tonight!
  16. How do you give a batter time, when the pitcher has already started his windup? Then, they overturn a call without indisputable evidence.
  17. Just as I type that a walk and triple score a run.
  18. The non existent offense is back. 7 of 9 outs via strikeouts. We have 2 hits 3 walks and 2 HBP in the first 3 innings and only 2 runs.
  19. Here's the difference between last year and this year. Led the Big 10 in fielding % last year. This year, tied for 9th. Led the league in runs scored last year. This year, 10th 2nd in runs allowed last year. This year, 6th Led the league in batting average last year. This year, last.
  20. Can we complete the trifecta? We finished tied for last in the West in football. We finished tied for last in basketball. Now, it's baseball's turn.
  21. Indiana has a 7.11 ERA. We haven't come close to scoring a run.
  22. This team is flat out bad right now. Matthews cannot be in the line-up right now. He can't field. He strikes out about 1/2 the time.
  23. They are good. Still, no excuse to be swept by them at home. Omaha even won 2 of 3 against them in Omaha.
  24. This brings me back to the end of Mike Anderson era. Those teams were really bad. However, they would probably sweep this team.
