Anyone else have some excitement for baseball season? Probably takes a year or two for the new manager to get it going, but bought a bunch of guys with him from UIS.

Season starts today at 2 pm on ESPN+.

I mean...if they win more than 5 games, the season will be a success and headed in the right direction, right?

Was Akron the one that eliminated baseball and then brought it back?

NIU lost game 1 15-6. I am excited to see wht this new coach can do. He talks a lot about building a pitching staff which has been lacking for years.

Years ago, NIU did as well (no team 1983-90). I assumed he was talking more recently.

Not a great start. Blown out twice 16-6 and 12-2. Run-ruled in both games. Going to take awhile for the new staff.

Lost today 10-4. We have given up 38 runs in three games. Absolutely have been pounded so far…….I wasn’t expecting us to win down there, but, this has been really bad.

Not to sound like an ass but what would make you think bringing guys from DII to DI would be a recipe for success?

I would expect to see some results next season. This season anything over last year in wins will be a success.

Now up 9-1 T4. It sure would be nice to get a win down there. Abilene Christian is a very strong program, as they typically win 35+ games a year.

Edit. Still T4…..now up 13-1.
