Early Break: Not even the Kentucky Derby is safe from instant replay impacting the race…what a mess

  • Maximum Security won the Kentucky Derby initially by a length and a half, and is the name that everyone hears when they watch the replay of the event…but replay determined that the horse crossed over into another lane and cut another horse off, so the horse that finished 2nd (Country House) actually was determined the champion
  • Is there too much replay? The human element is dying by the day. Also, how would you feel to ‘win’ when you were really 2nd? No race call has your name as the actual champion….just bizarre

Early Break: What’s Bill Moos thinking right now about the future of Husker Baseball?

  • Nebraska went into Northwestern on Saturday to start a 3-game series, and walks into tonight’s game trying to avoid a sweep, as the Wildcats (now 21-22 overall and 8-9 in B1G play) beat Nebraska on Saturday, 4-2, and on Sunday, 10-2.
  • Nebraska has lost 8 of its last 11 games and now is 23-18 overall and 12-8 in conference play—and actually in jeopardy of missing the B1G Tournament—in a conference they were in first place in not long ago
  • Bill Moos has the golden touch right now for athletic programs…how does he assess baseball? And how do you go about firing a Husker legend like Darin Erstad?
