I'm not one to say that "momentum" is a realistic factor in sports, but taking three out of four games last weekend in the Duke Baseball Classic has got to give this team some sort of confidence booster, right?

Central Michigan (2-6)
Have you ever received help from somebody even though you hat them for heckling you the whole time? That's sort of what the Snowbird Classic is. Hey Florida, thanks for the sunshine and baseball field to play on, but you don't have to keep laughing at the Northerners for having crap weather every February; stop rubbing it in our face, will ya?

Dan Hayden won his first game for the RedHawks as their head coach last weekend and his team isn't off to a terrible start, either.

Is this a real rivalry, or do these two teams just so happen to meet up almost every year since 2003? Either way, now would be a great time for the Huskies to start, well, you know, winning games?
