Are they playing just seven innings, or is there a mercy rule in place? I noticed both games were whippings but only lasted seven innings.

KU swept the two games today. 10-0 for the first game, and I think 8-2 in the second game. I'll have some information on Rock Chalk Talk soon.

KU took all four games this weekend vs. a pretty weak Chicago State club. I posted a recap at Rock Chalk Talk. Some pretty interesting reading regarding the horror story that is Chicago State's season. The Cougars leaves Lawrence with a 3-46 record. Reading about the state of their program can only make KU fans count our blessings.

Wow ... that was good stuff man. Those Chicago State kids should be applauded for what they've done. To play every week knowing they'll get their teeth kicked in says a lot about their love for the game.

Thanks Jaihaux, glad you like the blog. I'm with you on the Chicago State comments. Those players showed more character than their university this season. The guy I talked with, he has gone to see his son play all year. His parents put a lot of miles on thier car this season also. Nice to have support like that from your parents.

I recall a time in my sophomore year in college. My parents went to see my brother play in central Iowa for a Friday evening soccer game. They immediately left around 8 p.m. to make the drive to Hesston for my game the next morning at 10. My brother's team pulled off a nice win, we lost 9-1. My dad was none too happy with me and my teammates, especially after we won the night before and played a great game.
