Great win ... My concern is that this season is shaping up like the last few; beating up on a very weak 'pre-season' schedule in spite of our mediocre pitching because we are able to pound pitchers that would be mop up guys in the Big 10. Once the Big 19 season starts we seem to quickly fall 2 to 3 games off the pace in the Conference race and never seem to have the pitching depth to catch up

Big 19 ... sorry ... I must have been thinking of letting some of these team we play in Florida into the Big 10 ;>)

I agree with you 4 of the last 6. We are crashing the ball at the plate against these lesser teams and the staff still can't hold leads at all. I think we will score runs all year in Big 10 play but i really don't know about the pitching staff holding up. I hope i am wrong though,i know that for sure.
