The week kicks off on Tuesday night at 6:35 p.m. when the Kansas State Wildcats come to Lincoln for the third and final meeting between the two teams this season. The Wildcats have taken the first two games of the year, including a 10-6 win in Lincoln last Wednesday. Tuesday’s game between Nebraska and Kansas State will be carried nationally on the Big Ten Network. The Omaha Mavericks then pay a visit to Hawks Field the following night and it will be the first ever meeting between the two instate teams since UNO moved to Division I.

Nebraska returns the trip to Omaha in two weeks on Wednesday, April 30, when the teams meet at Werner Park, home of the Omaha Storm Chasers.
Will be at the game, representing behind third base dugout.
Interesting decision to start Christensen. He has looked good; big moment for him. No mention of Kubat that I heard on Ersty's radio show tonight, unless I missed it (a certain person I have been married to for over a quarter century deemed it OK to instigate conversation during the show; hopefully we won't have that again).
Interesting mention of Burkamper. In response to a question, Ersty all but said the issue keeping him off the field is academics, vs. how he has pitched. Ersty a straight shooter, I like how he answers questions in his no nonsense way. Talks a lot of baseball strategy as well--doesn't dumb it down and just utter platitudes. Excellent discussion of the wheel play in a bunting situation and how to spot it and call off the bunt. The show is always a good listen.
