4) Rutgers will be much stronger
The Scarlet Knights won't be nearly strong enough to think about finishing higher than 7th in the conference, but that doesn't mean there won't be a great deal of improvement. Greg Schiano is one of the better motivators and won't let this team be as bad as it was last season.

Brownlie could blossom into a true No. 1 starter in the major leagues, but it's more realistic that he'll fill a No. 2 or 3 role. (That should serve as a reminder as to how we need to temper our expectations for the draft. All of the first-round picks seem like they have limitless potential, but the reality is that very few of them will become frontline players.) He's no longer in the mix for the top overall selection, which is held by the Pirates, but he should go in the first five or 10 picks. The only reason he would slide precipitously would be if teams had huge signability concerns, which is a possibility because he's being advised by Scott Boras.

Jeff Frazier would have been thrilled to bat ninth in Rutgers' order. Being a freshman on a perennial NCAA tournament team, the 19-year-old just wanted a chance to make the starting lineup. Frazier never envisioned batting third for the Scarlet Knights and becoming a pivotal part of the program's drive to a Big East championship and fifth consecutive NCAA trip.

While the season is still over three months away, it is never too early to start speculating on what will be one of the best schedules in Tech history. LSU, Texas A&M, plus the usual Big East contests, and the usual battle with the Hoos will provide us with many challenging games. With the Tigers and Aggies, we finally have the sort of OOC schedule for which many Tech fans have been clamoring for years. I look forward to it.
