The University of Illinois baseball team is now in the throes of the Big Ten play and this weekend, they’ll be playing the University of Michigan. Any time Illinois plays Michigan in any sport, it’s a big deal. I can vouch that baseball is certainly no exception.
In anticipation of this weekend’s upcoming series, Michigan sports website, MGoBlog did a Q&A interview of me. I did the same, interviewing their baseball expert and posting the results on Illinois Baseball Report.
Illinois is a quite improved team. After losing six of their first seven games, they have an overall record of 15-13.
