Why Schools Like Southern Miss and Stony Brook Can Make it to Omaha

Great read on how the changes in baseball scholarships in 2009 transfomed college baseball from a dynasty-driven sport to an even playing field nationally.

"The NCAA set a roster limit at 35 players and restricted the number of players on scholarship to 27 starting with the 2009 season. There was one more change made: No scholarship player could receive less than 25 percent of a full scholarship, a stunning tweak that sent coaches scrambling.
Not only were coaches now banned from having more than 35 players on their roster. They could no longer offer players a 1, 2, or 5 percent scholarship, something done often to woo a player to college."

"When Nugget II was found dead that cold December morning, Southern Miss had a serious problem on its hands. The handler who starved Nugget II is presumably still out there, his freedom bought for $2,000 from alumni coffers."

Just wait a little longer. Baseball is next. Football is toast and basketball is almost toast.

Ace...

What are you saying, Ace? Should I just stop my Dugout Club membership now and put that money towards adopting a snow leopard instead for $8 a month?
