No time for dispair, Louisville in town for a pair

By now you've heard that Alex Wimmers suffered a hamstring injury just minutes before taking the mound against Michigan last Friday.

You're also aware that Michigan took 2 of 3, sending Ohio State into a three-way tie for third in the Big Ten at 8-7 while dropping to 24-15 overall.

I hope you're aware of the blackhole that has become the bottom of Ohio State's order and a continued usage of players in the wrong spots in the order, limiting potential Buckeye success at the plate.

A round of applause goes to the Buckeye bullpen led by Dean Wolosiansky and Eric Best who completely shut down the Maize & Blue over the weekend, as well as to Drew Rucinski who delivered a huge victory when the Buckeyes needed it most. (So much for pitching being the team's downfall)

While I could and will go indepth in all of that in the next day or so, the time has come to focus on Louisville.

The Cardinals come to Columbus as the 10th best team in the nation by the polls and the 3-best by RPI.Louisville is an impressive 36-7 overall, 14-4 in the Big East, and truly are an Omaha contender.

The Buckeyes will have their hands full and I apologize for not being able to find time to spend on the midweek set, life happens, but will have something of note to read tomorrow.

Until then I hope you don't mind another audio interview as I was able to speak to the Cardinals' head coach Dan McDonnell as his team was on their way up to Columbus. You can listen to the audio of McDonnell and I here.

Again sorry about the lack of articles and reading content, hope that the audio supplements the on-and-off of any set schedule.

Go Bucks.
