    Parts of sports movies that disappointed you

    I've often wondered what the ground rules were in Field of Dreams for a ball that was hit into the corn. Was it a HR if in the air and a ground rule double if it bounced first? I've spent more time thinking of that in my life than I probably should.

    Just got back home. Ugh. For being a close game it just felt like we were struggling to stay afloat. The 2nd inning at bats you mentioned were frustrating but turning a lead off double in the 3rd to getting thrown out going for 3rd was unacceptable too. I continue to hound this point but...

    In other Big Ten baseball news, Penn State lost to Navy 1-2 in 11 innings despite not surrendering a hit.

    Take 2/3 against Utah Take 4/5 against Creighton & AirForce Take 1/3 against Texas Tech That gets us to 12-12 before conference with wins over Texas Tech, UNC, TCU and Arizona. That's not bad. It all starts tonight. Gotta beat Utah when Meyer is pitching.

    The bright spot is that there are a few underclassman who are really stepping up. Raabe, Wilhite, Massey and Schoeberl come to mind.

    This stat says it all: Meyer/Schoeberl/Massey 48.1 IP, 33 H, 17 ER, 19 BB, 63 K, 17 HBP, 1.42 WHIP, 3.17 ERA Everyone else: 67.2 IP, 78 H, 71 ER, 68 BB, 91K, 12 HBP, 2.35 WHIP, 9.44 ERA There are some junior pitchers that need to play better. I count 3 experienced juniors that all have ERA's...

    With 2 bad losses and a 4 game skid you can pretty much kiss an NCAA bid goodbye unless things are real soon. What a disappointing start.

    I was only watching the live stats for this game but it seemed like Ireland might have been left in too long. Really wish we could have picked up that 2nd win this weekend.

    Sounds like they changed the ground rules at USB Stadium to require a ball to go over the black fence in right instead of above the line.

    What a beautiful pitching performance. 9 IP, 5 H, 14 K against the #18 team? Max Meyer is special.

    Walks continue to be an issue but Trent Schoeberl goes 5+ inning without an earned run as the Gophers beat the Rabbits 4-2.

    1. Temp is fine. Fees like 70 degrees. 2. I believe there is 1 stand open and the line gets long and moves slow. I went on Friday night and people were gone for about 2+ innings when they went. I don't know what is on the menu but I did see someone come back with chicken tenders.

    Nitpick time....but the banners at U.S. Bank Stadium do not reference the Big Ten championship from 2018. We've had TWO years to update those. C'mon office admins, get on it.
