Indiana State University baseball coach Lindsay Meggs has released the schedule for the 2008 Sycamore baseball team, a schedule that features both a southern trip and an east coast trip in the non-conference schedule.

"Our 2008 schedule could not be any tougher," Meggs said. "Win, lose or draw, our early season non-conference weekends are designed to get us ready for Missouri Valley play. If we are still standing heading into the Valley, we should be prepared for anything."

The Sycamores open the season with a southern swing, playing four games at the University of South Florida (Feb. 22-24) in Tampa, Fla., and three more at the University of Mississippi (Feb. 29-Mar 2) in Oxford, Miss. Weather permitting, Indiana State will open their home season on March 5 when they host the Indiana Hoosiers in a 3 p.m. contest.

It is back on the road after that as Indiana State visits the University of Missouri (March 5-9) for four games, visits Charleston, SC, for five games, taking on The Citadel on March 12 and then playing four games against the College of Charleston (March 14-16). Enroute home, Indiana State will top to play Austin Peay State University on March 18.

The Missouri Valley Conference season begins on the road for the Sycamores as they go to Carbondale, Ill., to take on Southern Illinois University March 21-23. Indiana State will play road conference series at Bradley (March 28-30), Evansville (April 18-20), and Creighton (May 9-11). Home conference series include the University of Northern Iowa (Apr. 5-8), Wichita State University (April 25-27), Missouri State University (May 2-4), and Illinois State University (May 17-19).

Dispersed in between the conference games are road games at Xavier University, Eastern Illinois University, the University of Arizona, Miami of Ohio and Ball State University. Non-conference home games Austin Peay State University, St. Louis University, Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville, Eastern Illinois University, Purdue University and Miami of Ohio.

I really like this new coach. He's not taking his sweet time to get that program moving. That schedule is a killer, but it's the kind we'll have to play if we want a return to championship caliber baseball in Terre Haute. Warn darn near killed the program, but we can still draw off the good times in the 80's for our "tradition." Looks like Meggs is going to build some new tradition on his own!!!
