Indiana 0-0 .000 1-3 .250
Purdue 0-0 .000 0-2 .000
Northwestern 0-0 .000 0-3 .000

 

Note:  These standings do no reflect Monday’s games by Penn State and Purdue

If there is a silver lining to Illinois’ weekend, it’s that we are still one spot above highly touted Indiana who went 1-3.  Keep in mind though, Indiana was playing #28 Texas Tech.  That knocked the Hoosiers down from #7 to #16 in the NCBWA polls

Minnesota is off to a 3-0 start but unlike Indiana, they weren’t playing a ranked team.  They beat up on our neighbor, Northern Illinois University. 

If you’re wondering, Michigan had to settle for a 7-7 tie on Sunday against Washington at the Texas State Baseball Invitational.  The tie was due to a travel arrangements. 

Illinois plays George Mason next on Friday at 11:00 am in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
