We'll agree to disagree on the Easter baseball thing. I'll go with it for pro baseball but not in college.

My biggest point was the reasons coaches have given are pretty lame. They'll change it when it's convenient for them.

"Baseball is made for Easter" is better than anything they've come up with, I'll give you that much LOL

This piece had little to do with any of my personal frustrations. I just don't think it's right to keep college age athletes away from their families or their right to celebrate the most important day on the Christian calendar when it can be avoided.

As I said, they'd give up Sunday baseball in a second if they could be on TV on Thursday. And we all know it.

My rationale on the family issue is that a lot of these kids are already hundreds of miles from home, and with midweek games the following Tuesday, its not like teams would be able to travel home to see family, especially if they just played on the road the Saturday before.

In a way, having a home series allows a chance for family to come in and have an excuse to spend the Holiday together...even if baseball does come with it.

I still think the best argument is to play Saturday-Monday on Easter Weekend. Don't eliminate the games on Easter, just start them later in the day when families are done with church and are looking for things to do. Play the final game of the series on Monday instead.

In the end, you still miss the same amount of class time, which is the real reason conference games are played on weekends and not whatever line the coaches are spouting about why it is now.
