Texas lost 16-5 yesterday.   And this program is on its way back or improved?   :smiley_confused1:

They won the series and are securely in 2nd place.  With Baylor on the road and Tech in Stillwater oSu should secure the regular season title.  I’s love to see Texas win out when it resumes but I imagine the Froggies will take one.
My expectations & projections for this Texas team are still right where I thought they’d be.  The only losses I really regret was the 2nd game in Manhatten and the 3rd game in Morgantown.

Texas Tech is really quite good. Winning that series was huge.

Updated regional projections:

It would be pretty funny for this Texas team to host a regional and have the Ags as the 2-seed.  How embarrassing for them. :)
(But also, quite dangerous for us )

Thank you, Baylor. A share of a regular season title is now within striking distance.  It would probable take a Tech sweep and Texas taking at least 2 of 3 from the Horny Toads or a Texas sweep and the Cowboys losing 2 of 3 to the Red Raiders.  Slim but possible.  Make for an interesting weekend to close out the season.
Course if the Horns had taken the KState & WVU series this could all be a whole lot easier.

Horns win 6-2 against Southwest Texas in a game that included a 2-hour lightning delay.

Alright, now let's sweep the toads and let the chips fall where they may.

Indeed. Now Texas just needs 3 of 4 wins in the last two games of the series between TCU at Texas and Texas Tech at Oklahoma State.

Playing out nicely. Now only two games matter.  We need one more Texas win over TCU or one more Oklahoma State loss to Texas Tech or both.

Nice.

Horns won & the live stats for Tech-oSu has had the Red Raiders up 7-3  in the bottom of the 9th with 1 out for a half hour. Storm delay?  Any way,looking good.

You know... this is David Pierce's 5th conference championship as a head coach.  He missed last year and his first year at Tulane but won one in his second/final year there.  Won three straight at Sam Houston.  I like that.  Horns need to get back to winning conference championships.  First things first.

So I guess the Tower will be all burnt orange tonight

Wish I was there to see it
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

Since starting out 9-9, we have gone 28-9.   And really since the end of April we have been on the road quite a bit.    Well done Texas !

Yep.  And the 9-9 wasn’t as bad as it looked.  Pierce seemed to be more interested in testing variations of the lineup and bullpen than actually winning at that point in the season - a shrewd decision that paid off later.  And Texas had a rough non conference schedule. The Cardinal was red hot and there was some suspicion LSU was corking their bats.

Ha, isn't there always?

Awesome series win for the Horns, and I'm delighted to get the conference title for the first time in over a half-decade.

A couple of big upsets today.  Glad we weren't one of them.

Aggies handled Indiana, Horns handled Texas Southern.

Tomorrow, it's on.  Wouldn't want it any other way.  My i s c & a aggie wife is already talking shit to me.  I never return it. History is on my side when it comes to this rivalry. :)

Aggies lose to Indiana, and then Texas grinds out a tough one against the Hoosiers to win the regional with a sweep.  I'll take it!

Currently awaiting the winner of the Oxford regional to see if we're traveling or staying home for the Super.  Tennessee Tech up 10-0 on Ole Miss so it looks like it'll go to a winnrer-takes-all Game7 tonight.
