The Bay Area is scheduled for some nasty weather this weekend, and there’s even snow possibly in the forecast in San Francisco for the first time since the 1970’s. The USF Dons (0-4) look to turn around its season after a rough opening stretch against UCLA as they play UC Davis in a home/away/home series this weekend. Weather will probably get in the way Friday with a double dip sometime either Saturday or Sunday. I spoke with USF Head Coach Nino Giarratano this week about his teams efforts to rebound over the weekend.

The first day of College Baseball is in the books with some interesting results. The season isn’t a sprint but a bad start to the season could always affect your chances at making the NCAA Baseball Tournament in May.
