I’ve gone back and forth on this. Sure, when they ten run Iowa in an elimination game, it’s sucks. But I, like you, want the tournament to remain in Omaha. That to me says they want Nebraska to make it.
Nobody wants to see Nebraska in anything.

Their state can lend us their facilities though.... ;)

It’s currently raining in Lincoln and it appears that rain is predicted through 5:00 pm. Late start today or DH tomorrow?

Iowa might get mercy ruled in this one. Wind is blowing out so anything can happen.

So many times . . . a team that goes off in the first game of a DH will go stone cold in game #2. Going to need Langenberg to shake off his funk and pitch a strong game.

Nebby's Emmett Olson pitched a gem. 7.0 IP, 4 Hits, 1 Run, 7 K

RHP Koty Frank (3-0, 3.95 ERA) will pitch the next game for Nebraska. He will face Iowa's RHP Ty Langenberg (4-1, 3.89 ERA).
