It also wouldn't be fair to make the comparison without considering the weatherIf I am not mistaken this was a 9:00 am play in game on Tuesday-not exactly fair to be comparing it with Iowa and Indiana that began at 4. I don't think anyone was surprised that the attendance improved once Nebraska played. Not worth arguing over, I just thought it would be better.
I never understand that concept in a tournament setting, assuming he's had enough rest since his last start. Otherwise, why risk dropping to the loser's/elimination bracket right off the bat just to save the best pitcher? Your mentality ALWAYS has to be to do whatever it takes to win the first game -- use your best players!If I recall correctly, I think they said on tv last night that Minnesota was saving their best pitcher for today.
