Jon Johnston

Eric Sorenson, the Stitchhead, a national college baseball writer for D1Baseball.com, joined me on this episode of Jon’s Postlife Crisis.

Eric and I talked about:

  • Will Bolt and impressions national writers have of him
  • The Big Ten’s choice to go with conference -only scheduling this year.
  • RPI - It’s all the rage. The powers that be put way too much emphasis on it. Does it matter this year?
  • Big Ten RPI Anchors - who drags our RPI down?
  • Who will win the Big Ten baseball season?
  • How many teams will the Big Ten get into the NCAA tournament?
  • Will Nebraska make it?
  • Will Nebraska host a NCAA regional tournament game?
  • How does the Big Ten look overall?
  • Wisconsin does not have a baseball team
  • Who’s the standout players for Nebraska and why?
  • This year the NCAA is having pre-determined host locations for the NCAA tourney. Should it stay this way?
  • How will Nebraska’s season end up?

I have a book out!

On August 21st, 2015, I unexpectedly dropped dead of a widowmaker heart attack. I was shocked five times on the way to the hospital with no response. I was shocked two more times in the ER. I was dead for over 20 minutes. A stent was placed, and I was induced into a coma. In January 2016 I received a second stent and in June I was diagnosed with an anoxic brain injury.

I wrote a book about my death and recovery. The title, “Been Dead, Never Been To Europe” reflects the ironic nature of life, what happens versus what we want to happen. It’s available at Amazon in Kindle and Paperback.
