No Michigan-MSU in baseball
February 17, 2014 - Burt Angeli
Tim Staudt, writing in the Lansing State Journal, on Michigan State not playing Michigan in baseball: “For the first time since 1945 Michigan and Michigan State aren't scheduled to play each other this coming (baseball) season.
It took World War II to keep them apart last time — this time it's the Big Ten's brilliant thinkers. And it's the third time in MSU coach Jake Boss' six seasons that the two have not been scheduled for league play.
“In other years they've scheduled ‘nonconference’ games with each other, but it couldn't be worked out this spring. It's hard enough to sell tickets to these games and then they don't even play the top rival.
“MSU coach Jake Boss isn't happy about it, but he doesn't make policy, as is the case with all of the coaches. If the nation's college coaches could do it their way, you wouldn't see the system anywhere near the way it is now. Whoever figures out how Big Ten baseball should be played is clueless.”
