I have been slacking off lately but with the recent holidays and great football games on TV (see Boise State vs Oklahoma), I have not had too much time to be blogging. You can expect me to be blogging more in the near future and especially with the season starting up at the end of the month.
Louisville has released the 2007 schedule. They will be appearing in my neck of the woods April 13th-15th at Uconn. The full schedule is available in PDF format.
St. Mary’s and Head Coach Jedd Soto have released the 2007 schedule. They play a very challenging schedule including visiting my favorite coach in Paul Mainieri at LSU. The full schedule is available here.
LSU also have released new artist renderings of the New alex Box Stadium which is due to open in 2008. The drawings are available here.
St. Louis and Head Coach Bob Hughes have announced the signing of five student athletes for the 2008 season. They are continuing to build a good program in the A-10. Full release here.
New Notre Dame Head Coach Dave Schrage has released the 2007 baseball schedule. They will continue their tradition of opening the season in San Antonio with one game against Prairie View A & M and two games with Texas State. They were scheduled to play Northwestern in a 3 game set but Northwestern had to back out at the last minute. The Irish will also participate in the Baseball at the Beach Tournament at Coastal Carolina with UNC-Wilmington and TCU joining them. They also head down to Stetson to participate in that tournament with perennial power Nebraska joining Stetson and Iowa in the tourney. There is no major surprises in their schedule with no trip to Uconn this year the College Baseball Blog Staff will not see the Irish. I hope Head Coach Dave Schrage good luck on the season and hope they make it back to Omaha and continue the tradition of Paul Mainieri.
Notre Dame released the signings for the 2007-2008 season recently and that article can be found here.
University of South Florida picked up four recruits for the 2007-2008 season. The four recruits are Kevin Quackenbush, Jonathan Koscso, Chris Jones and Todd Brazeal. Each of these prospective student-athletes were recruited heavy by some of the power players in the South. Quackenbush was recruited by FSU, Florida, Miami, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest. Jonathan Kosco has the Wahoos of Virginia, Army, Navy and Davidson giving him some looks. Chris Jones, a lefty from Gaither’s had offers from Florida, Clemson, Alabama, Auburn and Georgia. Todd Brazeal was getting looked at LSU, Clemson, and South Carolina but chose the Bulls over them.
These are four big recruits for new head coach Lelo Prado who is grabbing recruits away from the Big schools in the South like FSU and Miami. This should bode well for the USF Bulls chances of winning the Big East and getting a bid to the NCAA Tournament also.
USF also released their schedule for the 2007 season. Click here for the schedule.
Dave Schrage has taken over the Notre Dame program effective immediately. He comes from University of Evansville where he brought the team to the Regional Final this past season. He compiled a 130-108 record in four seasons and has been the head coach previously at Northern Illinois and Northern Iowa. Full Press Release is available here.
Reports out of Baton Rouge have Paul Mainieri taking over the LSU program. The official annoucement will be Wednesday.
