Why I like the Huskers in the CWS

One word: Pitching.

Only if you combine the Tennessee and Florida staffs can you come up with a CWS rotation that compares to Nebraska's. Nobody else in the CWS has the luxury of having Zach Kroenke and Brian Duensing as their #3 & #4 starters; that's a huge advantage for the Big Red. They really just need a win out of either Joba Chamberlain or Johnny Dorn over the weekend; obviously, another "two and que" and it's meaningless. Even fighting out of the losers bracket, they'll have an advantage sending those guys up against the lower part of the others' rotations.

Don't believe me?
Yeah, the clutch hitting over the last few weeks could disappear again. But they won't get blown out.
