And just as quickly the worm turns. Wichita State blew KU out of Hoglund tonight 18-3.

KU recap and boscore

I was only able to stay for the first two innings before I had to leave for a work commitment. At the time I left KU was play hard-nosed baseball and had the score tied 1-1.

Next up, three road games vs. Texas A&M. A&M might even be better than Arkansas and Wichita State. KU needs to win at least one game in College Station or else they return home with a 10-12 record vs. Div-I opponents. It's been a long while since KU had a sub-.500 record.

When it comes to college baseball, KU may be in the big conference but they have a lot of hard work ahead of them before they build up the tradition of Wichita State.

KU and WSU have split thier season series each of the last two years. Hopefully the Jayhawks will perform better when they travel to Wichita for the rematch. They can't easily do worse than they did yesterday.

Love to but it is unlikely. Hard to make it back to Lawrence at 1AM on a Thursday and be at work the next morning.

Yeah, it makes for a late evening. I have been enjoying your write-ups of KU so far. I was a little disappointed in the crowd number for last night. Nice evening, I thought there would be more.

I thought it was a pretty good turnout. 1,700+ is great for KU. It was the 10th largest crowd ever at Hoglund. More is always better, but KU is not like Wichita, we only draw over 1,000 during conference games, Wichita and maybe a few other games each year.

I think Wichita normally brings in 3,000+ for weekend games? Is that right? We'll get there sooner or later. Takes time. Tradition is one of the big factors.
