    Regional Selection Show on right now.

    UNO gets UCLA in the first round and Creighton plays Michigan in the Corvallis Regional.

    That UCLA regional is loaded, with Baylor and Loyola Marymount also going there.

    Huskers get UConn in the Stillwater Regional on Friday.

    Check with Jay Noble Dimwit. His bags are packed and he's ready to buy plane tickets, so he doesn't miss out on the Hawks' epic run to the CWS.

    I'm sure he'll be there to steal more foul balls from 10 year olds.

    Time to make some new memories in Bricktown. I think this regional is winnable. Heck, even Io_a took two of three from OSU.

    Conspiracy to make the B1G a 5-bid league this season? Winking

    Ohio St finished 7th in the conf. How good could their guys be? We aren't a good hitting team. Probably should have scored 15 runs against Michigan Saturday night with a dozen walks, but only got 7.

    I guess their 'great' pitching is what propelled them to the 12-12 record in the B1G and needing to win the tournament to get an NCAA bid. Let's call it like it is...we were in a funk yesterday and sucked at the plate. The guy behind the plate was equally bad for both teams.

    I do have to say that I am pretty excited about the young talent we have on the team going forward. Still not sold on Erstad as a hitting coach, but the talent they are bringing in would appear to be improving.

    My feelings about the program under-performing under Erstad have not changed. But he's clearly not going anywhere, so I'm hopeful that the strong finish to this season is the start of an upward trend. Making some noise in Stillwater would be another big positive. Doesn't mean NU has to win it, but I don't want to see them go out with a whimper.

    I haven't watched them at all this year to know why their record was what it was. What I DID do is watch their pitchers yesterday. IF you watch any baseball you should have realized that YESTERDAY both kids were hitting 94 with the fastball with some movement and BOTH kids had decent breaking stuff in the low 70s. As I said, you couple those 2 things with an inconsistent but usually wide strike zone, it gets really tough on hitters. Waldron doesn't have that kind of velocity unfortunately and he struggled. I'll give OSU credit for their pitching yesterday. They kept us guessing. I think we out hit OSU anyway but we just didn't get the timely RBIs.

    This team to bring confidence needs to win at least two games in regionals. I do not expect that to happen under Erstad but needs to . And if it does not then a change should strongly be looked at !

    How's the recruiting? As a BoBot, I had to swallow this pill and so does Erstad. He needs to be bringing in talent, as any staff does, is my point.

    Sorry for the confusion schuele. My bad

    The home plate umpire was garbage.
