Okay, that felt kinda weird writing that title! Thanks to the success of OSU (and ONLY that)....the Ducks are bringing back collegiate baseball for the first time since 1981. Thanks for joining the party Pat Kilkenny. The timing couldn't be better....and more laughable. (I'll explain the "laughable" part in a moment). Actually, it's a good thing for UO and the entire state. It will bring another prominent Civil War matchup into households throughout the state. And I do feel bad for the wrestling program....but let's be honest, it's all about making money. And, the Ducks--in a few years--will see the returns on baseball MUCH MORE than they would on wrestling. Unfortunately, we live in a world where to get something, you must give up something.
When I said "laughable"....I just thought about how OSU students, alums, athletes viewed this move. I must admit...it'll be strange when the program gets underway.
I hope Oregon does well....because the state is obviously on the map.
