    Might ORU miss qualifying for the tourney? Went 1-5 vs Western. Has final 6 games on the road against the 2 teams ahead of them in the standings. Two game lead over Bison and 'Necks. Both those teams have 3 remaining against PFW. Injury bug hit the pitching staff earlier and Isaac Coffey, the #3 starter, had his elbow tighten up yesterday. Tie breakers may be in play. Interesting indeed!

    Winner of regular season hosts the conference tournament the next year too. Lots at stake the next few weeks. If Omaha wins it I wonder if they could get TD Ameritrade for the tourney. That would be awesome for everyone

    How is it even possible to be 0-24 in conference play...

    Theyve only had a couple of one run games and a couple of 2 run games. Otherwise theyve been blown out. They did start the season 4-0 by sweeping Alabama A&M.

    Itís unreal. I could see in a Power 5 Conference if your program was terrible. In the Summit and the probability of winning in a game where anyone can beat anyone on any given day it almost seems impossible.

    Now to the Rabbits. The pitching has been excellent over the past month. This team has a real chance of qualifying for the NCAA. In baseball if you can qualify anything can happen. Should be a fun weekend in Brookings. Once we get through another inch of rain......

    It would also be nice to sneak in a win over Minnesota tonight.

    Go Rabbits!

    Big weekend indeed coming up but I would love some payback to NDSU and what they did to us at the end of the season last year.

    I have a question. If we would win the league where would the games be played? I donít believe our field would be capable of hosting. Augieís field is to short and limited seating.

    Im sure tonightís game will be a bullpen game for both teams as we only threw 4 pitchers this weekend and will definitely need more than that for the stretch run and conference tournament.

    GO Jacks!!!

    I believe TD Ameritrade hosts the Big 12 tournament.

    Negative, Big 12 has been in Oklahoma City at Bricktown Ballpark for a number of years

    Yes, this year they have the Big 10 tournament, not sure of how many upcoming years. I think UNO hosted the Huskers at Werner Park this year, which is the home of the AAA Stormchasers. It would be a great venue for a Summit League tournament. While TDAMERITRADE would be nice for the players it's not so cool when you have 500 in a 24,000 seat park.
