Why wouldn't they. The Big 10 is not a baseball conference. Its mid major. It was one thing to be in a cold weather situation but play in a southern conference like we did in the Big 12. But we are the most southern team in a baseball as an afterthought conference.Big loss to the University. Sorry to all those living in fantasy land because of a handful of decent years in baseball but Erstad was a great coach for this program. Baseball is an after thought in the Midwest. Our best young players either go to the pros or go South for college.
I thought Erstad did about as good as can be expected for a team in our situation. Not saying he was great but he wasn't as bad as many think either. The deck is stacked against us and he played the cards he was dealt decently.
I would have liked to have been better within the conference under Erstad, without a doubt...but we were never going to relive the glory years of Husker baseball.
