College Baseball Central Podcast: Talking Nebraska Baseball with Matt Reynoldson

Nebraska baseball prospectsIn this episode of the College Baseball Central Podcast, we talked Nebraska Cornhuskers baseball with Matt Reynoldson of HuskerOnline.com.

Coming into the season, the Huskers looked like the deepest, most complete team in the Big Ten, and that largely proved to be the case on their way to winning the Big Ten regular season crown. The four pitchers from whom the most was expected, Jake Meyers, Derek Burkamper, Jake Hohensee, and Matt Waldron, all came through with quality seasons on the mound, and as expected, Scott Schreiber and Ben Miller helped lead the way on offense, with the help of Angelo Altavilla stepping into a much bigger role.

Among the topics discussed with Matt are:

  • How the team performed relative to Matt’s preseason expectations for the club
  • How to put the season in perspective when you contrast the rousing success of the regular season with a quick 0-2 exit in the Corvallis Regional
  • Matt’s thoughts on the keys to the Nebraska program moving to the next level and challenging to return to Omaha
  • A summary of the roster attrition the team will face as they head into the 2018 season
  • Early expectations for the 2018 season
  • Matt’s overall impressions of the Big Ten as a whole, with the quality of baseball across the league at an all-time high
