College baseball season begins today all across the nation. It is so wonderful having a uniform start date, although I will not hesitate to point out the irony that there will be problems across some of the South due to problems with the weather. Maybe they could get around that by, oh, I don't know, starting the season later?
You might have noticed, but SBNation has created a college baseball super group, so if you're an uber college baseball fan, bookmark that for news from around the nation. The network is covering the sport more than ever before!
Below is a mess. I'm still trying to finish up some other things, and you're just going to have to put up with the random nature of today's flakes (as if today is any different than any other).
OMG THEY'RE TRYING TO SLOW DOWN THE GAME!!!

The Big Ten greeted the news with relative silence, mainly because the proposal – hardly a guarantee to go through – likely wouldn't make a big impact in the conference. Although several Big Ten teams run spread offenses and ramp up the tempo, none figures to be dramatically altered if the proposed rule change is approved.

That’s related to turnovers but also encompasses special teams play, the other popular topic from 2013 and we’re talking about it now because of this fact: 2013 was Nebraska’s worst year yet under Pelini from a field position standpoint. Worse even than the 2007 season where the Huskers went 5-7.
