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!

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.

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.

 

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

 

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.

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.

because espn refuses to show it until the end of the season, and tends to focus on college basketball. i wish espn would show college baseball once a week starting in the first of february. i think if espn showed it more, i see alot more people watching it.

 

also the whole minor league system hurts college baseball as well. i wish college baseball got big again...
