Well if Ohio wins this one and therefore beat us 4 out of 5 the last two weeks I guess we can't complain too much.

RE: MAC Baseball Tournament
Im so sick of people bitching about the tournament format. Its been this way for 10 years, why is it all of a sudden a problem now? The Stricklin teams never seemed to have a problem with it.

RE: MAC Baseball Tournament
I just hate tournaments. I think the regular season should always be how you earn that NCAA spot. Our basketball and softball team got lucky and our baseball team did not. I can understand that the East and West play different regular season schedules so a championship game (ala football) or series can make sense but having everybody or most everybody qualify just is something I will ever like. That's whether Kent benefits or does not. I just think it's stupid for a one bid league. By the way I know it will never be that way but I still hate it.

Gotta hand it to the OU pitcher. He threw strikes, we did not. Beautiful day, outcome not so good.

I was at the game today. What a nice day to watch a game.

We can complain all we want about the format and the demands on the pitching, but the bottom line is we could only muster three hits against a team facing the same pitching challenges.

The point some are trying to make is maybe they have better and more quality depth. Clearly our 1-2-3 guys are probably better. That said, Duncan better figure out how to win the MAC tournament because 40 win seasons don't mean sh!t if you can't get to the NCAA tournament.

I agree, Danny. Our depth may be lacking.

RE: MAC Baseball Tournament
Our lack of success at the MAC Tournament the last three years has absolutely nothing to do with pitching depth.

RE: MAC Baseball Tournament
This team very few "Kent guys" on the roster. Dylan Rosa playing with a hair line fracture in his thumb for 3 weeks is an exception. Eli Krause could be on any of the past Kent teams the way he battles. Just can't see why Brad Hamilton can't get on the field consistently. Luke Burch is a Jimmy Rider type player, but other than that, I dont see a lot of emotion or appreciation for the Tradition Never Graduates approach
