You have no favorite boards.
Nebraska obviously not playing how we would like.... here is why.
Here is the teams BA vs last year.

Team Batting Average in 2012: .315
Pritchard Average (only 7 games/injury): .148
Pritchard in 2012: .387

Sanguinetti in 2012: .323
Pat Kelly in 2013: .302
Pat Kelly in 2012: .313 Can't knock on Kelly, as he has been consistent as consistent can be
Chad Christensen in 2013: .377
Chad Christensen in 2012: .311 The only husker hitting for his 2012 average or better
Kalkowski in 2013: .245
Kalkowski in 2012: .310

That said, with a team hitting as poorly as it has been, its amazing we haven't been beaten like rented mules.
Again, here is why we remain in almost every game we play in.
2013 ERA: 4.22 (I believe this will go down even further as we keep playing, get Kubat back)
2012 ERA: 4.40
2013 BAA: .269
2012 BAA: .291

"In the deed, the glory"
Pitching has been better than I expected. The bats have been ice cold. In 18 games we have been held to 5 or fewer runs in all but 3 contests. Tough to win a lot of college baseball games when you score 5 or less runs every game you play.
Of the 296 DI baseball schools, Nebraska was 270th in team batting average and 276th in runs scored per game heading into this week. 168 teams were averaging 5 runs or more per game.

Pitching numbers are a bit misleading, too. Aside from last night, they've been even better than those numbers show in March. Had been giving up only 2.5 per game.
