OSU Athletics Weekend Preview

In case you were not aware, Sadly, Michigan has won all five series against the Buckeyes and 20 of the past 26 games. Give credit to Head Coach Rich Mahoney for building the program back up and being the Big Ten's elite program the past three seasons. Though with Recknagel, Putnam, Abraham, VanBuskirk, Mahler, Christian, and compay moving on, as well as Ohio State potentially on the verge of a special season, the Bucks are due. Or is it Dew?

I think we get a great performance tonight from Wimmers and clutch hits from Dew and Arp. Fetter will be the best pitcher Ohio State has faced this season and we cannot afford to strand RISP like we have of late. I'm sure the guys will be fired up and ready to go.

Hopefully a crowd near 3,000 comes out tonight and suports the team as they get a victory. Though the longer the gray skies stick around, the fewer fans will turn out. The weather is calling for overcast and a gametime temp of 68. Temperature will drop just bit to 60 by 10. Showers will be hit or miss, more than likely hit, chance of rain is 55% at 7, 60% at 8, 40% at 9, and 30% at 10. If the game is played, I suspect a lot of aluminum bleachers under the overhang are filled with the orange reserved seats left for the rain.

I'll be Twittering away after taking the last handful of games off. Feel free to comment here during the game. Go Bucks.
