I watched a few innings of the Bradley/MI game...Ashbeck looked very uninspired on the mound, and his attitude carried over to the whole squad. Michigan is a notch UNDER IU in my book.
Also caught the middle innings of the DBU/VCU game in Dallas. Talk about a "dead" home crowd...no wonder DBU's bats are in a FUNK right now. I guess the NCAA Tournament has little meaning to them.
MO St. is the LAST hope of the MVC. As the various announcers were alluding to on Friday, this year's 3 bid MVC needs a "high performance" rating, otherwise they'll continue to carry the mid-major tag.
