Today is the last Sunday of the regular season. Next week's final action concludes on Saturday. It's very difficult to believe the season has reached the final stages. Does any other sport season go by quite as quickly as college baseball?
It's already raining here in Michigan, so I'm a bit concerned about how many contests are going to be played across the Big Ten this afternoon. This radar doesn't inspire confidence, either (as of 1:00pm EST). Looks like a small hurricane circling the heart of conference. It also looks like my prediction that Illinois and OSU is going to be played will end up wrong. (Does that make me an "official" weather forecaster?)
Worse, I can't imagine State College, West Lafayette or Evanston getting much relief today. On the upside, Minneapolis looks to be in the clear.
As usual, I encourage you to update the comments with scores, highlights and opinions as the day progresses. I hope to update this post as the day goes along. Assuming, of course, there's something to update.
Finally, on this Mother's Day, I send out best wishes to all the "Baseball Moms" out there.
Scoreboard Update (as of 1:26pm EST):
Iowa 3 Penn State 1 (5th)
Michigan 1 Minnesota 0 (1st)
