The most senior laden team and they haven’t learned their lesson. It’s an embarrassment quite frankly. If they have any competitive heart they’ll go out and take care of business and make their mark. If not it’s a massive failure for a team that should of won this league this year.
    We played a WEAK ASS early season schedule which is now coming back to bite us. Just another issue. It's nice to go "South," but make the trip MEANINGFUL.

    I think we'll still make the tournament. I also think we'll win this series.
    NO EXCUSES

    Take this as you will, but from the most recent bracketology we are listed as a 2 seed in the L'ville region. I'd definitely take that. That is close enough that I would attend. This was made 2 days ago which was well after getting swept by DBU. This site does give the MVC 3 bids. DBU is a two seed and ILST is a 3 seed. https://d1baseball.com/projections/c...-of-64-may-15/

    Also BaseballAmerica from their bracket 2 days ago has us as a 2 seed in the UCLA regional. They also have DBu as 2 seed and ILST as a 3 seed. https://www.baseballamerica.com/stor...d-of-64-51519/

    Also this site has Illinois State listed as a bubble team and no mention of us anywhere, which I'm guessing is a good thing. https://www.streakingthelawn.com/201...e-world-series

    If we can win these next two, and win a couple in Normal, I think we have a good chance of making it. Whether we make it or not, it has been a great season. The good news is that our conference is ranked 6th, so losing to teams that are in the top half of the conference doesn't hurt us as much, since our conference is pretty good this year. I don't know if we'll make it or not, but right now the bracketologists seem to like us okay. I do agree that we need to start winning though so we don't give anyone any reasons not to like us.

    Sycamores bounce back with a 12-8 victory. Pitching was solid until the 6th. Gave up all 8 runs in the last four innings. Braves scores at least one run in the 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th.

    But,......a win is a win is a win. And we needed the win

    Huntley Goes for Three Doubles as Sycamores Even Series with Bradley



    TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Indiana State baseball snapped a four-game losing streak and evened its weekend series with Bradley following a 12-8 victory over the Braves Friday night at Bob Warn Field. With the win, ISU moved into third-place in the Missouri Valley Conference standings and clinched a top-four finish, avoiding any play-in games in the MVC Tournament next week in Normal.

    Bradley defense made some brain-dead plays throughout this whole game, which is why Hannahs must integrate "diversity" (there's a collegiate concept if there ever was one) into his game plan/strategy(s). College players MIGHT look good in "warmup drills," but turn the gas burner on medium high, and they start to fry!

    Huntley finally "got his shit together"...we'll see if consistency surfaces v. the bottom of Bradley's P-staff today. With ISU also grasping for "throwing arms," kids outa be camping in the graveyard today to catch those "flying pearls."

    Take your guesses re: today's MVC:

    http://warrennolan.com/baseball/2019...issouri-Valley

    My guestimate is that UE by virtue of sweeping Bradley in Peoria early-season, be given the #4 spot if ISU defeats Bradley today. We'll be #3 if both DBU & IL ST win.

    If we LOSE today, Bradley will get the #3 card & ISU will squeeze the #4 while tied w/ UE. Since we won the series @ UE, we'd get the upper hand.

    I project both DBU & IL St wins today.

    The first sign of a pitcher beginning to struggle we need to start warming someone up ASAP. When your pitcher gives up a HR, walks a guy, and then throws a ball in the dirt that's usually a good sign. Letting him struggle for a few more batters after that before warming someone up just doesn't make any sense. We basically gave them 3 of those 4 runs in the 6th. Lucky for us Bradley basically gift wrapped us the game with all of their throwing errors.

    I also saw that when Bradley gets a HR, the player that hit it, puts on a home run sombrero for hitting it over "the wall" as they approach the dug out. That might be about the funniest thing I've seen this season to be honest.
