  • Baseball season getting pushed back to Mid March in 2022?

    Personally I say it's about time and I hope this passes. Any thoughts on unattended consequences though for non P 5's? A couple more scholarships would be great as well.

    Good article but disappointing that Gene is not given at least a mention as someone that had this idea 30 years ago. He deserves front line credit but should at least get a mention.

    It's going to massively improve B1G recruiting. That's probably not a positive for non P5 schools.

      Fixed it for you...

      And I totally agree with your Gene comment... he definitely should have been mentioned.

        A college world series in July will do wonders for sunscreen makers, portable fan manufacturers, and ice cream vendors.

        In all seriousness though, this is a great idea that should have happened a long time ago.

          Could help us too. We're right on the line of February baseball ridiculousness. Depends on the year.

            Call me nostalgic but I preferred those Memorial Day NCAA Regionals and the CWS starting in the first week of June.

            I’m too damn sentimental.

              Eck Stadium is one of the most comfortable hot weather parks I’ve ever been to. I would guess that 60-70% of the seats are in constant shade during the day. The Sunflower Collegiate League games have been very enjoyable in that regard. Anyway, I’d rather sweat like a Workman than freeze my Hurlbutt off.

                I have always thought that one of the reasons it seems so cool is that it is in essence it's a huge concrete block that is frozen during the winter months and slowly gives off cooler temps as it warms up. But thats just me

                  @SentimentalShocker has a nice ring to it

                    Good point, on the flip side, it's a really crappy stadium to watch baseball in when it's below 65 degrees. That ballpark has always been cold blooded so to speak.
