I saw Coach at the airport before I flew to St. Louis for Arch Madness as the baseball team was getting ready to fly out to South Carolina for the Coastal Carolina Tournament. Coach was down...really down. The team was 1-8 at the time and coach said "Matt, We just aren't playing our brand of ball. I don't know what's up but we are just plugging along. Hopefully we'll get it together". Well, the team wouldn't turn the corner for a few more games but they for sure have now - winning 7 of their last 8 and are now playing Jays' baseball. Tonight, it was very sweet for Jays' fans considering that the Huskers did something similar last year to the Jays at Rosenblatt.
Tonight, Creighton gave Nebraska their worst beating in the rivalry since 1993 - and it was at Haymarket. That was a 19-1 killing but tonight felt worse. It's the first shut of Nebraska since 1977...that's 32 years ago! They scored 8 runs in the 8th inning and 10 straight batters reached base at one point.
One has to ask - how much longer does Mike Anderson have in Lincoln? Congrats to the Jays.
