Impressive Crowds in Omaha

College baseball games don't usually draw much in the way of crowds-- except for the College World Series ongoing these days in Omaha, Nebraska. The new stadium being used has full houses of some 25,000 for seemingly all of the games. Indiana drew three good crowds for its games before the Hoosiers were knocked out in 1-0 loss Wednesday night to Oregon State.

The Big Ten tournament held each May has been an attendance disaster in Columbus, Ohio and then this past May in the Minnesota Twins stadium. Next May the tournament will be played in Nebraska and I say if it does not draw there it has no future-- at least as far as fan interest is concerned. If it does draw, leave it there. If it does not draw fans then I suggest using the campus site with the team having the best regular season record serving as the host.

But Omaha has been as impressive as the Big Ten tournament has been ignored.
