I love college sports and am a big fan of college football. This weekend, I watched all of the ESPN college previews....read the Sports Illustrated college football preview and listened to a college report on the radio and internet. You can't escape it. And...that's the way it should be.
I only wish that college baseball would get the same pre-season and in-season coverage. Some of the biggest names in baseball today are former college players. Steven Strasburg, Ryan Howard, Kevin Youkilis, Marlyn Byrd, Tim Lincecum, Buster Posey, Pat Burrell, Brian Wilson, Aubrey Huff, Evan Longoria, Huston Street, Ryan Zimmerman, Ryan Braun, Dustin Padroia, Andre Ethier, Chase Utley, Clay Bucholtz, David Price and Tim Husdson to name just a few...there are literally hundreds.
There are enough great MLB players that have played college ball to justify to fans, the networks and advertisers that there are really future stars playing in college. That should make for great story lines...great theater and incredible baseball.
So....when is going to happen...When is College baseball going to get its prime time pre-season special????
