I agree.

NU has underachieved so many times in postseason games in recent years, there's no way they could have taken Yale for granted.

But there does seem to be something mental going on.
No doubt. I've seen talented teams rally from seemingly unsurmountable deficits in the late innings, been part of comebacks on both sides of the ledger that felt like they probably shouldn't have happened. I've also seen the same teams flat as a nickel and not worth much more, losing to a team it should have owned and put away early ... in those situations, when everyone is scuffling, guys press all the more.

Anybody happen to catch the body language today?

Politz (a righty) came into today with nice numbers -- against mostly subpar competition. 3.47 ERA. Opponent batting average of 263.

We go out and hit .182 and score one run in 9 innings against him.

I see he's from Austin, TX ... so I can find him when the season is over and let him know my displeasure.

They showed snippets of the dugout. Not enough to gauge much, but I noticed Erstad and Silva were at the far end, like usual, then there was a big gap before the first player.

So you can make his day, again? ;)

Made the trip down from Vancouver Wa to root for the Huskers today. There was a big difference in the energy levels of the two teams from the start of the game. Yale seemed fired up and ready to play. Nebraska was slow out of the gate and never matched their energy level. Yale batters were getting deep into counts against Jake and made him throw a lot of pitches early. It looked like he couldn't locate his curveball so they waited and made him pay. I kept thinking we would rally but the Yale pitcher kept lead off batters off base and threw strikes. Nebraska got robbed of at least 3 hits by great plays and had some bounces go against them. Team was flat. Hope they can turn things around tomorrow and get another chance at Yale and get by them for a shot at OSU to salvage this trip. GBR!
