    The Buckeyes traveled to Kent, Ohio for the first time since 1989 to take on the Kent State Golden Flashes in a mid-week game. The Bucks lost 8-3, proving once again that they are not the premier program in the state. :shake:

    KENT, Ohio - The Ohio State baseball team dropped an 8-3 contest at Kent State on a chilly Tuesday afternoon at Schoonover Stadium. With the loss, the Buckeyes drop to 19-8-1, while the Golden Flashes improve to 20-8 in 2016.

    Ohio State left four on vs. lefty Kent State starter Connor Wollersheim, who improved to 3-1, throwing 5.2 innings on no runs, three hits, one walk and four strikeouts. In the second, Troy Kuhn doubled to right center with one down, but was stranded on third base. The Buckeyes left a pair on in the fourth after Wollersheim struck out his fourth batter of the afternoon. Right-handed reliever Chris Martin allowed no runs or hits in the sixth and seven innings.

    For someone that dosent follow baseball closely, whats the answer? I thought when Beals was hired, it was a pretty popular decision, wasnt he supposedly a good recruiter? Is the OSU job good enough to attract great candidates?

    Tremendous questions, star. For your second question, my answer would be "you would think so". As to your first question, the hiring of Beals was a mild surprise as other candidates seemed to be in the lead. Here is a BP thread on it:

    Alert: Total opinion to follow

    I think the whole thing boils down to most people don't really give a damn about OSU baseball. Outside of the inexplicable building of a really nice facility in Bill Davis Stadium there is no excitement. A while back I read on BSB that Jeff Svoboda did an interview with Gene Smith about the program. I asked him if he would ask him where Beals stood. Smith said that "he's our guy" which caused a lot of facepalming here.

    Here's the thread:

    Thanks JC, took a look at the old threads. I think I confused Beals as coming from Kent State. I dont think people were too excited about him, but tried to stay optimistic. Looks like there were some better candidates out there at the time.
