Nebraska Baseball: 2008 Season Starting Pitchers

It's opening day for *everyone* across the college baseball landscape. Tons of baseball happening, as earlier we posted the opening day schedule for the Big 12 conference.

*It's about time!*

This week the Big 12 coaches picked Nebraska to finish sixth. That's probably one spot below where we need to be to get a NCAA tourney bid.

Nebraska returns five pitchers out of 17 who have seen action as a Husker. Between them they have a total of 14 wins and eight losses. Beyond Johnny Dorn, Husker pitchers have started a total of three games.

This weekend's starters are as follows:

- Friday - Thad Weber
- Friday DH - Johnny Dorn
- Saturday - Dan Jennings
- Sunday - Aaron Pribanic


RHP Aaron Pribanic is a JUCO transfer from Hutchinson (Kansas) Community College. He was 8-2 in two seasons, going 6-1 last season wit a 3.33 ERA. After the starters, it's anyone's guess as to who'll be on the mound.

The last time we saw Thad Weber was when we were getting shelled by Arizona State in the final game of 2007. Perhaps that's not a fair statement about Weber, it's a new season, but given our inexperience and the Huskers lack of power at the plate, the pitchers had better be more than we expect them to be.

Whether ready or not, the season is here.
