Ok... Now I'm on board with baseball. Not because I think UB is going to win the tournament they are one loss away from getting the boot. It's also not because the Bulls are likely to turn into a conference power, unless director white turns into a fund raising machine.
Nope it's because the MAC's tournament is double elimination, which rocks, and because the number eight Bulls Baseball just send number four Ohio packing.

Ohio Vs. Buffalo, 2012 MAC Baseball Tournament: Bobcats Drop 2nd Straight, Knocked Out By Bulls - SB Nation Cleveland
The Ohio Bobcats were promptly knocked out of the 2012 MAC Baseball Tournament in Avon on Thursday afternoon, losing 6-5 to the No. 8 seed Buffalo Bulls. Kent State shut out the Bulls late last night but, undeterred, they rallied back for an early afternoon game to survive with an extra-innings win. Alex Baldock came through with the clutch hit, driving a double to right center with two outs that brought home Matt Pollock for the winning run.
So now we have to cover baseball next season. Now all I need is someone to come along and manage it ;)
