Buckeyes Announce 2010 Schedule

2010 Schedule

From --
The Ohio State baseball team will begin the 2010 season playing 18 of its first 21 games in the state of Florida with the other three being played in Knoxville, Tenn., head coach Bob Todd announced Thursday.

The Buckeyes, the defending Big Ten Conference champion who started 18-3 last year with the first 21 games played in Florida, open up their season Feb. 19-21 with three games in Jacksonville against North Florida, Florida A&M and Richmond before taking part in the second-annual Big Ten/Big East Challenge Feb. 26-28 in Clearwater/St. Petersburg. The 10 team, 30-game event pits the Buckeyes against South Florida, Notre Dame and in-state foe Cincinnati. Ohio State defeated the Fighting Irish and Bearcats in the inaugural Big Ten/Big East challenge last season.

Ohio State’s initial series of games on the road also includes trips to Port Charlotte, Fla. (March 5-7), Knoxville (March 12-14) and to Winter Haven, Fla., for a series of Spring Break games against opponents to be announced.

Big Ten Conference play opens the weekend of April 2-4 at Northwestern and the regular season will conclude May 20-22 in Columbus with a series against Minnesota. The Bill Davis Stadium home opener is set for 2:05 p.m. Wednesday, March 31 against Toledo. It will be the first of 21 home games for the Buckeyes in 2010.

The Buckeyes will play home conference series against Indiana, Penn State, Illinois and Minnesota. In addition to the home opener against Toledo, Ohio State will also play week-day home games against Xavier, Akron, Marshall and Ball State and two against Louisville with two other games to be announced.

Sorry, I was just trying to get something posted to help Chris out since he is incredibly busy right this week.

Well maybe the gf and i will make the road trip to Michigan State and see the new stadium. I have never been over there for any sport. If that does not work out then Ann Arbor,Michigan will be the spot for sure. I have done that a time or two also. Lol! Still a long time away for that stuff though.

I swear the season starts earlier and earlier every yr.,that sucks for us northern schools for sure. But what can you do about it anyway?? Maybe some time i can get away from work and stuff and go to a Florida for a weekend, but for right now that is just not possible. I have plenty of time i guess. I sure wish the season would extend longer in May/June. I really hate playing 2 non-conference games a week during Big Ten play.

The Bucks, which is something I've stated time and time again that should/needs to be addressed, will not be playing as many non-conference midweek games as last year.

The only 2 non-conference game week is the L'Ville two which I don't mind.

This is because the NCAA added a week to the schedule, hearing the complaints about the compacted schedule, and with an extra weekend you take 3/4 midweek games out of the equation.
