Early Break: Husker Baseball sits outside the NCAA Tournament as of yesterday’s projections

  • The action begins tonight, as Nebraska tries to build off of Monday’s win at Northwestern and get a nice run to end the season with back-to-back home series against Arizona State and Michigan—2 teams that are both in the Top 40 in RPI in the nation
  • It’s put up or shut up time for Nebraska, especially since they are at home. Will they show up and perform or end the season on a thud?

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?

Early Break: Husker baseball takes Sunday’s game against Iowa, but loses the series, including an epic implosion on Saturday

  • Nebraska wasted another excellent outing by Matt Waldon on Friday (7.2 IP, 2 ER, 6K), losing 3-2, and then imploded on Saturday, falling 17-9, before winning 3-2 on Sunday to avoid the sweep
  • Darin Erstad says his guys competed all 3 days, and they did..except for the last innings of Saturday’s game…do you still have major concerns about this team’s chances of doing anything in the postseason?

Early Break: Darin Erstad says he hates everybody he plays against—is that normal or is he just overly intense?

  • Erstad met with media yesterday before the team heads to Iowa for a weekend series, and said that he hated teams when he was playing, and he still hates them now as a coach. Nebraska fans generally ‘hate’ Iowa and Wisconsin in sports, but do they hate anyone else?
  • Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

Early Break: Husker Baseball goes on the road and takes a series from No. 21 Baylor

  • Nebraska won game 1 on Friday 12-4 and had a near no hitter on Saturday before losing the final game of the series.
