Ha! If you told me at the beginning of the season that we'd be starting River Ridings and Marcelo Perez and TBD in the last Big12 series, I'd have thought that the season was lost. All I know is that I'm hopeful that the last inning of regular season Big12 play goes significantly better than last year's last inning. Both innings will be played in the State of Kansas but hopefully that's the only similarity.
