My good buddy from Big Ten HardBall has posted a link to the University of Illinois schedule for the 2007 season. There is a ton of open game dates during their annual spring break trip. There are zero marquee OOC games they will play at home this year but they have a full Big Ten schedule which is always a challenge to unseat Ohio State as the perennial power in that conference.
Full Schedule available here.

The Minnesota Gophers ended up losing 7-3 to hapless North Dakota State to give them there seventh win on the season. As I said before, This game should not have been scheduled by the Gophers for the academic reasons stated in my previous post.

Here is a major issue with scheduling mid-week games around finals. Minnesota has a midweek game at North Dakota State. Coach John Anderson has decided to bring only five pitchers, position players, shortstop Dan Lyons, catchers John Arlt and Kevin Carlson, infielder Jeremy Chlan and outfielder Taylor VanderAarde will not make the trip. The main reasons are due to the fact of projects, studying for finals, and other issues that come up in a regular students life around this time. Should Minnesota have scheduled this game?
