CWS: Huskers for Beavers

By Lindsay Schnell - June 22, 2006

The Beavers are really turning into the darlings of the 2006 CWS -- there are a bunch of spectators wearing "Huskers for Beavers" t-shirts. According to quite a few fans I talked to today -- some from the Northwest, some not -- everyone is rooting for Oregon State because it's a new team.

OSU went three up/three down in the top of one and Nickerson is now on the mound. According to OSU coach Pat Casey, Nickerson was ready to go yesterday and wanted to throw. I can just picture Casey talking to him: "Jonah, CALM DOWN, we need you to be rested. Don't worry, you're going to throw again."

Isn't that what you want in an athlete? Someone that always wants to play and is ready to go. Nickerson looks good too -- he just struck out Rice's first batter Tyler Henley.
