Baseball-centric Boilermakings

It's May 1st, and that means many of the NCAA baseball tournament selections are starting to come out. There are only three weeks left in the regular season and most projections have Purdue solidly listed as a regional host, as well as some having us as a National seed. As I said yesterday, if we win the UCLA series we can definitely think about being a National seed.

I've also been sick all day, working from home and trying to stay vertical with the help of vitamin C and DayQuil, so I haven't been able to write much. There will be a quick update here after 5pm when the NCAA women's tennis tournament field is announced. Purdue is an automatic bid to that, and the bracket can likely be found here.
