I think of Omaha as a traditional aspect of the CWS.

Does it NEED to have a 13,000 seat softball park in order to have teams play in the event?  Nope.  So, you're just talking about the cash grab-- the very thing that continues to ruin college sports in every endeavor.

And why shouldn't a Longhorn be able to complain about an unfair tournament location?  Has there ever been a tournament for any major sport held consistently in Austin or within 20 miles of Austin?  Although it certainly seems rather on-brand for a land thief to defend a built-in cheat code for his own team.
LMFAO !

Oh CW and I have traded more than a few barbed comments over the decades.  It's a natural part of the rivalry.

A very nice softball complex that hosts the WCWS is far down the list of things that are ruining college sports.
Other cities, including Austin, are free to bid on hosting the event.
Poor Texas!

Don't be so salty just because someone chooses to call out a situation that is obviously unfair.

You're a Sooner, just own the cheating.   $witzer surely did!

Yup, I freely admit that the Horns' helmetosity gives us unearned rewards.  Just own it.

My daughter had tree in her front yard fall over but no house damage from that
her back fence blew over and a tree limb went through her roof all the way into her kitchen

home ownership is so wonderful sometimes

Glad to hear that your power is back, 320. Houston's taken some hard hits this spring.

Everything’s fine here, we’re all fine here.  How are you?  

Just a little rain here 50 miles south of H town.
