I don't know about the rest of America, but I love College Baseball. I think it is one of the most under-rated College Sports out there. It doesn't get near the attention of College Basketball or College Football, but I think that much like College Basketball and Football, College Baseball is still more exciting than the professional leagues it precedes, i.e. Major League Baseball. I'm not saying the College World Series should get more attention than the NCAA basketball Tourney, but it should definitely get more coverage.
The action in college ball is way more exciting. The pace of the game moves at a speed that MLB can only dream of. The controversies involving steroids are non existent,and the season length leaves you wanting more. You would think the same sports purists that look to college football and basketball, because the players in their prospective professional leagues are all about the money and don't have any heart, would somehow demand more coverage for college baseball, but this simply hasn't happened. You would think the steroid scandals and Manny Ramirez would make people write off MLB all together, but this apparently isn't the case.
My Texas A&M Aggies, who have been ranked #1 for some weeks, and are still in the Top 5, have not been televised once this year. Instead of Airing college ball, Networks are too busy televising the Yankee's vs the American national team or the Marlin's vs the Australian national team or worse yet, Pre-Season MLB Ball. When I was living in College Station, air time for my team didn't bother me b/c I could go to the game, but now that I have moved, I'm forced to follow them online. The games I have been able to catch have reminded me why I loved baseball as a child. It reminds me of why baseball is America's Pastime. It makes me forget all of the reasons why I started to loathe the sport, like Barry Bonds, Manny Ramirez, and players unions just to name a few.
Oh well, whats a College Baseball fan to do. I guess I'll keep streaming my games on the internet until people finally tire of the scandals.
It's a fact that 70 percent of the people who purchase heavier tackle do so with the categorical I just lost a huge snook! Einstein Hairdo.The other 30 percent have either Tarpon Fever or are sporting a hand cramped into a claw from a deepwater grouper.
