IU Baseball: NCAA Tournament With Short Ride to Louisville

Recommended Posts

We were not perfect but did what we do best today with home runs. Today should shut up anyone who wanted Saalfrank pitching yesterday as he was also far from good as well. However, UIC's pitching staff is pretty bad so we did what we needed to do with the long ball and avoided closing the season with an embarrassing loss. 

Obviously, assuming we throw Gordon tomorrow and he is reasonably good we should be OK if we face Illinois State again. The Redbirds have absolutely zero good pitchers besides Headrick who we saw Friday, so hopefully either we win easily or at least have a chance in a shootout. Have no idea what we do Sunday Night pitching wise have burned Bierman and Sommer already, but assuming we face Louisville lets cross that bridge if we come to it.

Ugh. Louisville offense which has been a mess all weekend got shutdown by a guy with a 5+ ERA while their ace was good but not perfect in 4-2 loss. Means we face UL where we probably meet our end unless their offense is in the toilet a third straight day which I don't see. If we somehow win that then have an excellent chance of out slugging an Ill. St team with minimal arms twice. Just don't see it happening. We were presented with same situation in Lexington two years ago and got destroyed by UK Sunday.

Louisville offense just doesn't look right and it has not all weekend. They are doing exactly what Mercer was complaining about at Friday Press Conference for IU being impatient and popping pitches up. If this keeps up IU has a decent chance to win a pitchers duel. If UL gets it together I think we are done. Entirely up to Louisville who moves on today and I am not dissing us.

All IU does is re-arrange the deck chairs on the Titanic.

I said this yesterday, but if you're going to take shots at any IU athletic program, baseball is about the last one you should aim for. We've elevated our baseball program way above where it was 10 years ago.

 

Now if you want to pick on the money pit known as our football program, or the three-ring circus known as our basketball program, fire away. Those programs aren't even close to pulling their weight.

Haha, he’s looking to get reactions. You’re giving him what he wants.

It’s better to laugh and think of the old adage
“It’s better to keep your mouth (or fingers) silent and them to think you’re a fool than to open it and confirm it...”
