michigan coach proposing long overdue schedule change ...

Post by tmcats » May 27th, 2020, 10:02 am

The proposal aims to push back opening day by four weeks, from mid-February to mid-March, allowing northern schools like Michigan to start their season by playing home games, instead of spending their first month on the road. This change would come with a corresponding extension four weeks later into summer — with the Men’s College World Series ending in mid-July. MichiganDaily

Like has been done before, the SEC, ACC and smaller southern leagues will kill this along with more academic-focused northern schools (Ivy League, etc.).

Weather is important, but resources and focus also matter. You can build indoor facilities, weight rooms, and stadiums to overcome a disadvantage. Wichita State did it. The bigger issue is that high school prospects usually come from southern states where baseball is year round and a way of life. Is it a coincidence that a little league team from Las Vegas has four major league players?
