But ya Elon opens the season today vs #9 UVA then plays Coastal Carolina and North Florida.

We have a great lineup coming back this year. Pitching will be interesting. Pretty deep starterwise, but the bullpen is going to be an adventure. Be nice if we could pull and an early upset of UVA. Have an incredibly tough schedule, but hopefully will be able to make the tourney again this year.

How is everyone's team looking?

wow...we still have about 4 weeks until Quinnipiac opens. We play 4 games in Tampa before going to Stetson, Bethune Corkman, and Dodgertown for a game vs LA's A league team. Then up to Viriginia and New York before we open at home in 5 weeks.

Quinnipiac has a good chance of making a push in the NEC again, but the pitching is still lacking, so don't look for another combined 34-0 loss in the NCAA tourney this year!

What is your guys opinion on why college baseball isn't as popular as college basketball/football?

UNM beat Texas Tech 15-13 in the season opener earlier this week.

We play a three game set @ Arizona this weekend. We have got three guys in our infield that are studs, Daniel Stovall(1B), Jordan Pacheco(2B), and Ian Hollick(3B). All were named preseason All-Americans by the MWC. Our pitching staff looks weak again but as long as they can keep us in the game I think we will be fine due to our very powerful offense.

I went, got rained on, saw FSU pulverize UNC-Asheville and then left to get some dinner.

Now I am watching the Lady Noles beat Georgia Tech on FSN.

FSU Baseball will be fun. Dick Howser Stadium is a first-class facility.

It snowed on me at Howser on Saturday.... UF lost to VMI tonight also.... I really thought they would be a lot better than they were last year, still could be, just not a good start.

The majority of good players don't bother playing college baseball, especially since they have to go through the minors once they get drafted just about all the time.

Hey for some of you guys who like ACC teams, there's a website accselect.com that lets you view a wide variety of ACC sports. It's 5 bucks a month, but i think 4 if you wanna see one game, and they're showing Miami/UCLA all weekend.

I really don't know I wish they would televise more college baseball games. They're pretty exciting to watch. It might just be the fact that teams are more evenly matched in bball and football........... a lot of programs don't put as much effort into their baseball programs as they do into other major sports.

I went to the UCLA-Canes game.. I left in the 5th inning and the canes were up 2-0. There were only like 4-5 hits, pitching was dominating.

Miami is not a top five team. They played probably the worst game I've ever witnessed tonight at UF. The third baseman was horrible, cant throw to first or make contact. He also watched a pop up drop right next to him. SS booted an easy grounder with bases loaded two outs. Right fielder dropped a fly ball. On a ground ball to the pitcher with runners on the corners and one out, he held the ball like he was too cool to make a play, then realized there werent two outs and threw the ball over the catchers head. It was tough to watch.

Elon probably going to complete the sweep of St. Joes today. Went out to the second game yesterday. The guys looked good. Nice bounce back after a rough start to the season last weekend.
