Big Ten Preview – The Schoch Factor

The Schoch Factor

Stephen Schoch (@bigdonkey47), Jake Mintz, and Jordan Shusterman (@CespedesBBQ) preview the Big Ten, a conference that only promises ten but in fact gives us 13 whole baseball teams to talk about.

First, they discuss the challenges of playing in this conference when it’s a bit colder outside for much of the season than the other Power 5 schools, and the experience of practicing inside (especially at night).

Next, they preview the biggest storylines of the Big Ten season, from Maryland‘s encore after their incredible 2022 season to Rutgers having something to prove after being snubbed from the regional field a year ago.

Finally, they introduce their main characters for the upcoming Big Ten season and assign various superlatives, from Most Unfinished Business to Best Major to Coach You Want To Play For, and so much more.
