It's going to be interesting for sure. Right now they have the fourth best RPI, which I think is right. My biggest worry is their starting pitching outside of Nick Gallagher, since CJ Eldred is out for the year. If that happens, I think they can surprise some people this year.
You are correct. Iowa is officially 0-0 in conference play. Kind of odd, but good news for them.
Yes, complete domination. Iowa leads 18-7 this year.
Assuming a win over Penn State, first game in BTT will be against the winner of Indiana/OSU unless Nebraska beats Michigan. Second game would be against the two seed since a win over PSU secures the seven seed for Iowa, so no Purdue. I'm also hoping for Nebraska and avoiding Minnesota as long as possible.
Yeah, the Clones winning would help but not drastically. Either way, they'll go down as a quality win come Selection Sunday, and Iowa will have a top 40 SOS if they go on a run in the BTT.
Thanks, I appreciate it! Iowa baseball should be fun to follow this year. They have a lot of good talent that'll get better as the year goes on.
