Re: 2019 NCAA Baseball Tournament

A couple of items: * What an outstanding season by the Birds, Coach Holm, and the entire coaching staff - Fantastic!!!! * With Louisville destroying ECU - makes you realize just HOW close the Birds were to going to the College World Series. * I was at the Baseball Alumni Day when the 1969 Championsh...

Re: 2019 NCAA Baseball Tournament

If Louisville is as dominant as Jamar seems to think they are - then why are they the #7 seed?? Also, I believe the Tar Heels won the ACC Tournament. Let's hope Louisville has the same arrogance as Jamar - throw a #3 or #4 starter in the first game vs UIC and get beat. Then the Birds take care of In...

Birds to play Indiana in Louisville!!! With Louisville vs UIC on the other side of the bracket. There is definitely a chance to get out of this regional.

Re: ISU Game 3 vs #1 Dallas Baptist 3 pm

Yes, the pitching depth is a weakness - but that is being addressed in recruiting. For the most part, the format worked in protecting the top four seeds. However, there definitely needs to be a change on yesterday's situation. The first two games of the day need to be flip-flopped. It should be the ...

Re: MVC Tournament Bracket @ Illinois State

Indy State beat SIU today 4-1 - so now down to just three teams remaining.

Loser after the Thunderstorm, will play Indy State tonight - will be a late night at the Duff.

Re: MVC Tournament Bracket @ Illinois State

Scott Warnum on the ESPN + broadcast last night pointed out the Redbirds are #3 in the nation in road victories - Wow - what a stat. For the folks who do not regularly watch Fox Sports Midwest - Warnum is the Pre-Game and Post-Game host for the Cardinals and Blues broadcasts.

Re: ISU game 2 vs #3 Indiana St 7 pm

Redbirds won a wild one 10-7 - in the sixth inning Indy State scored 6 in the top and the Birds responded with 5 to retake the lead at 8-7. The top of the sixth for the Redbirds, was a disaster that was started with a poor decision. After taking a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the 5th - we walk the lead...

MVC Tournament Announcement

On the MVC web-site - in the Championship Format discussion - "... the top four seeds based on regular season finish a buy into Day 2 of the tournament,..." - I guess they think the teams have purchased their way in versus using the proper work - bye.

Re: OT: SIU Arena Naming Rights

That is a little bit of stretch for Banterra for the size of the deal, but good for them for supporting SIU. Heartland Bank & Trust headquartered in Bloomington is twice the size, however, the top officers and primary family are Illini - part of the difference. All other institutions only have branc...

Re: 2019 Home Game Times Announced

I see there is no reason given for the Noon start for the ND State game - that is the only one that seems odd. Noon starts are very strange to begin with - what is wrong with 1:00 or 1:30?

Re: Jefferson Transferring

The problem with this +/- stat - it can become skewed for bench players - with a lot less minutes played. Is there really anyone who believes that if Hein had his minutes doubled, that would have contributed to more wins because of his +/-? He had a role - he played hard and gave everything he had -...
