Absurd strike 2 to angelo
That would have been a nice leadoff walk, if only the inside corner hadn’t grown by six inches.
Per the announcer: “Too close to take!”
Yeah, because swinging at a 3-1 pitch that’s clearly inside is such a smart play.
Jeesh, just completely cold as ice at the plate.
Yes he does, he also looks like he's about 13 years old.
Damn bats went down the crapper today. What a way to oiss the bed in Fri front of the home crowd
See your optometrist as soon as possible. That pitch split the plate.
Would have been nice to get the hardware, but still a very good tourney. Solidified a #2 seed and shut up the blowhards from across the river. Now let’s get some wins in the regional.
After mashing the ball all week...what a highly disappointing performance today. Ohio State barely made the B1G Tourney, and all of a sudden their pitching is unhittable? Just horrible at the plate today. In front of 18K Nebraska fans, we can't hit squat and completely shit our pants.
Fire Erstad. Inexcusable performance
So five B10 teams make the regionals?
It would appear so
They should bump out Michigan just because.
Nice tourney run but garbage performance in front of the home fans. I'm so sick OSUsucks. Surprise surprise they got some calls and we didn't but geezus NU still pissed away opportunity after opportunity.
Did you include Iowa? They are going to bust the front door into the tournament after all.
I have a tendency to believe that there would be more fans at these games, but their not buying into Erstads and his coaching
Would not surprise me to see Ohio State bump Michigan out of the tournament.
I agree that there hasn’t been much excitement around the NU program, but today’s crowd was over 17,000 - second-largest of the year in college baseball. Not as good during the week, but weather contributed to that.
Home/Away is determined by the number of times a team has been the home team in the tournament. If there's a tie, then the higher seed is the home team.
I'm fine with it as how many advantages should be given based on seeding? Once you're in the field, everything should be as equal as possible. Using seeding as a tiebreaker for Home/Away designation makes sense in that regard rather than just saying the higher seed is always the home team.
But what about the questions I ask? I'm not trying to be an asshole.
The fact is, Nebraska baseball isn't better unless we improve our staff and Erstad is a legacy beast.
Hitting is where we really lack.
Coaching is where we lack. Next year will be year number 9. Fire him and get it over with. Being an alum should not matter. A non- alum would have been fired 2 to 3 years ago.
Now that would be a a shame...to see that jerkoff shortstop not make it to the NCAAs. He wouldn't get to stare down the camera like a complete tool, and generally embarrass himself and the Michigan program.
So how is this statement any different than the "bitching and moaning" you are accusing other people of?
Really he can’t play every game for them..
Waldron wasn’t himself yesterday and had grown too many pitches Wednesday night..
Who let him throw too many pitches on Wednesday?
How many at bats did DE Have yesterday?
Don't dodge the question. You used Waldron's pitch count on Wednesday as the excuse for the performance.
You really think another 12 pitches would have mattered...
He pitched a great game Wednesday night, he just didn’t have his stuff yesterday..
OSU's pitcher humping it up there at 94 and with good off speed stuff at 74 I'm sure had NOTHING to do with how poorly we hit yesterday. The kid had a great arm and the umpire helped him out on numerous occasions. Our batters had no idea what was a strike and what wasn't with the clown behind the plate. He often gave them 4 inches outside and 2 to 3 inches inside. Sometimes they got pitches above the belt and below the knees and sometimes we did too after about the 1st inning. I don't know if the guy had a plane to catch or what but he wasn't interested in seeing as many base runners on walks as there should have been. OSU had 2 very good pitchers on their staff and we got them best yesterday. IF you have guys throwing 94 with a low 70s curve ball like they did and they give them that wide of a strike zone, it is awfully tough to hit.
Waldron didn't cost us the game anyway. Not being able to get runners home cost us the game and a lot of that was on the strike zone and their pitchers. Those kids could bring it. 94 with some movement mixed with 74 mph curve balls with a very inconsistent wide strike zone. That makes it rough on hitters.
Apparently you think they mattered. You used them as the excuse.
tOSU starter was very sharp yesterday they deserved to win that game..
I would have liked to see our batters make him work more. But it is hard to do that when you’re not sure what a strike is. Still, it seemed like we gave him too many easy innings and swung early often.
This was the most frustrating thing for me. We made it way too easy for them.
Conference tournament championship games are a bit of a crap shoot, especially when it's a win-or-the-season's-over game for one team and not the other. Huskers were a bit flat, and I wish they had played better on Sunday, but overall it was a very good week. Doesn't erase 7+ years of mediocrity, but you have to start somewhere. Getting a couple of wins in regional play would be another important step forward.
