It's the B1G so, yeah, there's no telling what they would do...BTN’s graphic just stated Nebraska can clinch a share of the title today with a win an a Michigan loss. That’s incorrect. It would be the outright title. Nebraska can’t finish in a tie with any other team because it will have played one less game due to the Sunday game with Northwestern being canceled.
Unless..........the Big Ten has decided the final standings this season will be based solely on the number of wins. That would be stupid in 1,000 ways. But you know.
Kevin Kugler just tweeted that the conference office made the announcement. Presumably, the teams that missed a lot of games from covid will make up a few this week, but Nebraska and Northwestern are not going to be included in that.The folks at BTN have now pulled out their collective heads and are stating Nebraska will clinch the outright title with a win.
As it should have been from the beginning. Northwestern's COVID issues weren't our doing. If we had played the third game we probably would have scored 20+ due to their lack of pitchers.
The fact that this is only being decided/announced now is beyond ridiculous. But not surprising from the league that settled on a season schedule three weeks before it started.
In all seriousness, I’m just ecstatic that this team looks like it is peaking in late May. The guys who were slumping (most importantly, Schwellenbach) have largely come out of it and even guys like Matthews and Mojo have stepped it up at the plate. The pitching is as solid as it’s been all year (plus Kyle Perry!) And the defense has been a strength all year.I’ll see your “On to Michigan” and raise you a “Sweep Michigan!”
Been thinking about this, especially that 1 walk thingy.Here's something to love from today: 0 errors, 1 walk issued.
