What must it be like to fly completely under the radar even though you're winning?

NDSU baseball coach Tod Brown may be one of the few people uniquely qualified to answer that question.

His Bison baseball team opens the Summit League Tournament tomorrow in Omaha as the number two seed, coming off a record setting spring where NDSU won 20 league games. Brown sports the best player in the league, Bennett Hostetler, who decided to return this season for his super senior year.

Two of the best pitchers in the league are native North Dakotans, Cade Feeney and Parker Harm.

Quietly, Brown has built a perennial Summit League contender despite playing the first 25 games of the season on the road every season.

Think about that. Fargo, North Dakota with its long winters that last thru April; has a really good college baseball team. You can forgive fans this spring with football being played at the same time, but this weekend NDSU has a chance to make some history and return to the NCAA Tournament.

There are no excuses not to know, unless you don't care.

It's time Bison fans realize they've got a really good baseball program even if they don't anything about it.
