Here are a few quick news items before we post the season's first Weekend Preview (which, of course, is jam-packed with news, notes and analysis) later today. Also, I'll be bringing back the weekly college mailbag starting next week, so if you've got any questions for the mailbag, send them in to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another team has been bitten by the injury bug. Florida State will be without senior first baseman Mike Meschke and freshman infielder Devon Travis four four to eight weeks. Travis was scheduled to have surgery yesterday after breaking the hamate bone in his left hand. Meschke suffered a hamate fracture in his right hand and will have surgery Monday. Heralded freshman Jayce Boyd will open the season as the starting first baseman, and chances are he will stick there.
Auburn, which already lost Trent Mummey to a severely sprained ankle, also will be without shortstop Casey McElroy to start the season after McElroy broke a finger. We'll have more on the Tigers' plight in Weekend Preview.
Elsewhere, another season-opening series has been cancelled by poor weather. Illinois announced that its series against Bradley has been scratched by cold temperatures and snow cover. James Madison had already cancelled its season-opening series against Marist. Don't be surprised if more cancellations are on the way.
