    While watching that ugly game yesterday, I did hear the announcers say this about Meyers. The Gopher coaches told them that they don't know if he will play again this year, but if he does, he will not be a starting pitcher.

    Gophers end Northwestern's season with a 6-5 win today in the regular season finale. Gophers got a 2 run home run from Jordan Kozicky in the 4th to go up 4-3 before a 3+ hour weather delay came. After the delay the Gophers added single runs in the 5th and 6th and got solid outings out of the bullpen with Bubba Horton getting in a little trouble but keeping damage to a minimum in 3 innings of work giving up 2 runs. Jeff Fasching went a couple scoreless innings and Brett Schulze picked up the save working the 9th. With the win the Gophers open up the Big Ten Tournament as the 4th seed and face Nebraska Wednesday night. Full bracket looks like this:
    Wednesday
    9AM #3 Illinois vs. #6 Maryland
    1PM #2 Michigan vs. #7 Ohio State
    5PM #1 Indiana vs. #8 Iowa
    9PM #4 Minnesota vs. #5 Nebraska

    Please do not lose to Nebraska. Is the only way we end the season above .500 is by winning the B1G Tourney?

    Some updates from Coach Anderson's press conference this afternoon. Patrick Fredrickson will start tomorrow night. Max Meyer is out of the boot and threw the other day but it wasn't great. Harder because the injury is on his plant leg. Probably won't pitch early in the tournament but could be available the deeper we go. Sam Thoresen is closer to returning and the way Anderson talked I think there is a possibility of Sam starting game 2. Coach officially called both Max and Sam day to day.

    Doesn't look good. Gopher clown show defensively in the first and down early.

    Much better approach offensively this afternoon and a lot more success from the bats as well. Sam Thoresen looked really good early but then started to struggle with command in the 4th as it looked like he was dealing with a blister or something. Nick Lackney came in and really did a heck of a job going 6 innings with just 1 run and 1 hit. Aside from the 4th inning where the Gophers really looked bad it was a really good performance especially being on such short rest.

    Good lord the umpiring in the Big10 is for ****. I have watched a few games this year and attended a few games and I have been left very underwhelmed by the umpiring. And watching tonight if this is the best that the Big10 has to offer it is downright embarrassing. I have umped high school and Legion games and if I was that inept behind the plate I would be embarrassed. I hope these clowns don't get more than the 50 bucks or so you get for a high school game. The ump just rung up Wilhite on a pitch that was a good foot inside and high.

    You watch the high school playoffs and the umping is superior to what the Big10 has to offer. It is sad that supposedly a major conference can't get umps who are inferior to what you see at a VFW game.

    Gopher pitching was outstanding tonight while the bats struggled big time to execute. Gophers had a ton of men on throughout the game but couldn't execute well at all. Gophers got a 1-0 lead in the 3rd and clung to it until finally being able to come through with a couple big two out hits in the 9th. Jordan Kozicky has come a long way from his struggles early in the season at short. Has made a number of absolutely outstanding plays during the B1G tournament.

    Good win tonight. You never want to be in the loser bracket but potentially playing Ohio State twice is about as good as we could hope for in this situation. Let's hope we can make it 5-0 against them on the season. Bring it home, boys!

    Bullpen has been outstanding, Lackney Thursday and Duffy on Friday. Hopefully we can capitalize on offensive chances by moving runners and getting clutch hits. Our bunting attempts were atrocious last night. Fundamental baseball is so important in these close games where runs are scarce. C'mon guys, let's step it up and execute -- you can do this!

    We did get the one base hit on a perfect bunt where no one for Iowa covered first base...

    Wonder if they'll show the crazy stat about how often the Big Ten Tournament Championship has contained either Ohio St or Minnesota or both. I remember at one point it was like 19 out of 20 years. Will have one this year too.

    There have been 38 Big Ten Tournaments. Minnesota (10), Michigan (9) and Ohio St (9) have won the championship in 28 of 38. And those 3 teams have taken second 20 of 38 times.

    Those 3 have won 183 tournament games and the rest of the Big Ten has won 152 tournament games.

    Gophers force the winner take all game. Max Meyer was lights out the only thing that stopped him was a pitch count of 75 that kept him at 5.2 scoreless innings. The teams traded punches in the 8th with 4 runs each. The Gophers got a couple huge at bats from Eddie Estrada as he came through with a pinch hit solo shot in the 7th and a 3 run homer in the 8th.
