New Notre Dame Head Coach Dave Schrage has released the 2007 baseball schedule. They will continue their tradition of opening the season in San Antonio with one game against Prairie View A & M and two games with Texas State. They were scheduled to play Northwestern in a 3 game set but Northwestern had to back out at the last minute. The Irish will also participate in the Baseball at the Beach Tournament at Coastal Carolina with UNC-Wilmington and TCU joining them. They also head down to Stetson to participate in that tournament with perennial power Nebraska joining Stetson and Iowa in the tourney. There is no major surprises in their schedule with no trip to Uconn this year the College Baseball Blog Staff will not see the Irish. I hope Head Coach Dave Schrage good luck on the season and hope they make it back to Omaha and continue the tradition of Paul Mainieri.
Full Schedule available in PDF format and HTML.

The Duke Blue Devils have released their 2007 schedule. They will compete in the East Carolina Invitational this year on February 23rd-25th. The ACC portion of the schedule has two highlights on the season with Florida State and Georgia Tech visiting Durham. In addition to FSU and GT, Boston College, Maryland, and Virginia Tech come in for ACC teams. The schedule is extremely challenging for second-year Head Coach Sean McNally but they are headed in the right direction. They have to replace Dan Otero who served as the Number 1 pitcher for the Blue Devils because he transferred to South Florida to join Lelo Prado in building a power.
