I will preface this by saying that I'm thankful that ESPNU had college baseball on today.

That being said, their choice of a day game between Bethune-Cookman and Coppin State is a head-scratcher.

I certainly don't mind Bethune-Cookman being on TV. They are a really solid team and their unbelievable dominance of the MEAC is a story that needs to be talked about more. It's just that I would have liked to see them play someone other than Coppin State. CSU is now 4-30 with their loss today.

Beyond their record, their team ERA was 8.89 coming into the game and they had four players in their starting lineup with averages below .200. As if that's not enough, they only carry 13 players on their roster total. It resembled some summer ball teams I played on in high school. They were bringing pitchers in from right field, shortstop, and seemingly everywhere else just to piece it together.

Of course I'm not blaming Coppin State or anything, but if there's a worse team in D-I, I'm not sure who it is.

Yeah, television broadcasts of college baseball are ridiculous. I've never their choices. Bethune-Cupcake and Lossin State? Yep, makes sense....

It's extremely silly ... it's like showing Alcorn State vs. Angelo State in college football Saturday at 11 a.m., or something, on one of the major ESPN networks.

My only guess is that it's a favor to someone.
