thank god we have a mod around here that actually works unlike those other two losers that were tagged
Sorry for having that user on ignore and not getting the tag!
Like their debut single, you're just
SEC should add Stanford, Ok St and NC State
Sorry, I don't check the board as much as I used to. Someone can start a new thread if that works best.
We are very much not a top 5 team in the country.
You joke, but I'm very concerned about competitive balance in the sport going forward post-realignment.
The top 5 teams and 7 of the top 9 teams are in the SEC or will be. Plus, the top 7 teams in attendance. I know college baseball is regional, but I don't think that's great for the long-term health of the sport.
How is this any different than football?
ESPN has ruined every sport
It's really not and I'm scared about competitive balance in football too.
But SEC football isn't as dominant as SEC baseball is. SEC had just 2 of the top 9 in football (though obviously those were the #1 and #2 teams). It's deeper in baseball by a fair bit. Plus, having the top 7 teams in fan support concentrated in the same league is pretty unprecedented in any sport.
That being said, the randomness of baseball and the 64-team format does bring in more teams. The recruiting rankings are a good correlation to success but not to the level of football where you have to recruit at an elite, elite level to have a shot. Teams that recruit at a merely good level have gone on deep runs or even won the CWS. My hope is that this will prevent baseball from being dominated by a few teams from one conference every year.
Yeah, y’all definitely don’t have the starting rotation you’ve had and have some question marks on the mound. Bats should be solid again though like always.
We once again have a stupid potent lineup and some question marks on the mound. Pallette coming back from injury to be our Friday guy, Noland likely the Saturday guy (fuck him), and either Wiggins or hopefully Hagen Smith as our Sunday starter.
I’m fully prepared to hate watching this season. We’ll hit well enough and pitch poorly enough for no game to be “over” until it’s over.
This is year fsu finally wins a championship in baseball. I think they are kinda under ranked considering the pitching staff fsu has but ranking is fair because we probably will fuck up
I’m eager to see who’s going to emerge as that fucking weirdo on your pitching staff now
The biggest problem right now is Vandy Boys and their MLB payroll IYAM
Looking at Nebraska’s OOC schedule. Sam Houston State, TCU, LBSU, Kansas State…
what are the odds we can stay around 15-40 ranking wise before big ten play?
You guys lost Hallmark and Povich right?
Excited to be working at a school that gives a shit about college baseball again.
And schwellenbach, who went to the Braves in the second.
Knew about that one
Did you though?
No you guys are very forgettable lol
First time I get to say this and it’s going to feel good. I can’t wait for the defending national champion bulldogs to take the field this year.
I took a stab for Nebraska. Bold is contributed or started last year.
1st - Jack Steil
2nd - Cam Chick
3rd - Max Anderson
Short - Brice Matthews
LF - Leighton Banjoff
CF - Luke Sartori
RF - Tyler Palmer or Garret Anglim
Catcher - Griffin Everitt
DH - no idea could see Banjoff/chick/Steil time here.
Friday - Shay Schanaman
Saturday - Kyle Perry
Sunday - Drew Christo - might get relegated to the pen here or here, gave up a couple HR’s in fall ball.
Midweek - Koty Frank or Jake Bunz
Closer - Colby Gomes (didn’t actually play last year due to injury but was a freshman all American at closer, been dealing with injuries after trying to stretch him into a starter)
FOP - Koty Frank or Jake Bunz
Not mentioned in the line up but defensive replacement because he can’t hit Efry Cervantes who was nails last year in that role.
That also almost completely ignores everyone we have coming in via HS/juco/transfer.
I’m sending more pine tar to your house
Is the kid from GCU a starter? Mid 3 ERA ain’t too bad
Your guess is as good as mine. Both these guys probably come in with a shot for the rotation. I could be completely off with Perry as your Saturday guy, just as easily could end up as your long reliever. Same kind of for christo, could maybe just stay in the pen to start the year, earn some midweek starts before weekend rotation work, but you have to think he was promised a lot.
Sucks, was probably going to be our Friday night guy. Lots of talent behind him to fill the void, will be interesting to see who steps up. Wish he would’ve just had it done last year when he got hurt.
should be higher ?
does anyone have a baseball America sub
I assume they'll come out with a tv schedule pretty soon, wanna say it has usually been set more than 2 weeks in advance in the past.
Nothing till March 12 seems stupid, I get that there's basketball going on but gtfo at zero time to show baseball
I’ll burn down your home when you travel to Omaha this summer.
Why would he be in Omaha?
To sleep with your mom
going to suck, for you, if you need an atv to get to her!
I did plan on going mudding iykwim
She doesn’t slum it like that.
