Northwestern went 10-40, 4-20 last season. The Big Ten has 13 teams that play baseball. They only pick 6 teams for their preseason poll. NU wasn't among those 6.

based on 2023 regular season records...both schools dumb down their schedules

The old days this would be a typical sweep weekend anything less would be failure. Let’s hope it works out and we start 3-0.

I think some of the transfers look promising. Plus in this sport, there can be a lot of development by a player from last year to this year so I am going to be optimistic until proven otherwise.

Saum deserved better in the first inning. He was hitting the corners really well and the ump didn’t give him any. In the second inning he has given him those calls. Then Schulz should have caught the ball that fell in that scored the runs. It had a lot of air under it. Schulz should have caught the ball hit for the double in the second inning. That experiment isn’t working.

Do you really expect the assistant of a 5 year loser to be successful? Ain’t gonna happen …

Is there anything you like about Tulane Athletics, ever? Do you ever have any constructive criticism or just snide remarks with no substance?

So which part didn’t you like? The fact that Jewitt had a losing record or that fact that Uhlman was his assistant. 😎. No, I like winning 19 out of 55 games ! Just the facts man, just the facts.

The new turf looks nice.
NW started last season 1-17.
No hitting tonight as was the case most of last season. The transfers we picked up outside of a couple of pitchers aren’t going to make much of an impact based on what I’ve seen so far. Brace yourself for another long season unless we get to hitting the ball. Raining all game reminds me of the Military Bowl. Just not fan friendly.

Let’s see…it’s only Game 1. That doesn’t help much, does it?

Disappointing opener. JU has a difficult job overcoming the neglect of the program over the last 5-6 years.
Northwestern’s first opening win in eight seasons dating back to (2016).

Hitters were swinging early in the count and leading to easy innings for Northwestern pitchers. While they should have been coached not to do that, it could be opening night anxiousness. Hopefully so.

JU was a part of that neglect. Just a terrible hire. Fuck Dannen.

Good debut for Moore here and Benbrook before him.
