It's Opening Day. Really?

The first thing I think of when I think of perfect baseball weather is mid-50s with a chance of rain.

The above sentence is an example of sarcasm. Yet, that is the forecast for Saturday in New Orleans, which happens to be opening day for the LSUS baseball team.

Yep, January 26 is opening day. That's the earliest start in the school's baseball history and it's not a good thing.

I think pushing the start of the NCAA season back to a uniform starting date was a bit much, but this is a bit much in the other direction.

There has to be a happy medium and, hopefully, one of the NAIA or NCAA finds it soon or else teams like the Pilots and Loyola of New Orleans may freeze out their opening days.
