    Texas/USC Happy Hour

    Working on it! Talked to Black Sheep owners last week and it is in development. Glad you enjoyed it last year - should be equally fun this year.

    Longhorn News/Discussion (Non-recruiting)

    Had a short exchange with Fort Worth Southwest 3* WR Nnamdi Adim-Madumere who is picking up interest from a lot of schools. Currently holds offers from Alabama, Texas A&M, Baylor Texas Tech, Missouri and a handful of other schools. Does not hold an offer from Texas but said Texas is a school he is interested in (and Mehringer is in communication with him). Adim-Madumere told me he isn't looking to commit anytime soon and wants to enjoy the process and weigh all of his options down the road.

    Injury Update and Position Change

    Edwin Freeman is also injured - bicep. Supposed to have an MRI on it.
  7. University of Texas head coach Shaka Smart lost another player on Thursday, just two days after true freshman Mohamed Bamba announced his decision to leave school early and declare himself eligible for the upcoming NBA Draft. Sophmore guard Jacob Young, who averaged 16.2 minutes and 6.2 points per game for the Longhorns this season, announced via twitter that he would seek a transfer. “I appreciate all of the effort that Jacob has given to our University over the past two seasons,” said head coach Shaka Smart in a statement. Young was a 4-star recruit out of Yates High School in Houston and was ranked as the 23rd best point guard in the country.

    *****HornSports Bracket Challenge*****

    After Day one of March Madness, LonghornDon holds the lead in the bracket challenge with 15 of 16 correct. And Arizona.... Really? SMH.
  10. Game Preview by Jameson McCausland After a one year absence, 10 seed Texas is set to return to the NCAA tournament on Friday against 7 seed Nevada. This will be the Longhorn’s second tournament appearance under third year head coach Shaka Smart, with the first appearance in 2016 ending with a 1st round exit to Northern Iowa on a half-court shot at the buzzer. Nevada returns to the tournament for the second consecutive season, bowing out in the first round last year to Iowa State, 84-73. On the court, the Wolf Pack are led by the Caleb and Cody Martin. The twins have combined to average 32.7 PPG and 11.6 RPG. Cody is also the team leader in assists at 4.2 per game. There is not much to dislike about Nevada offensively. They shoot well from the field (46.8%), shoot well from 3 (39.8%) and rarely turn the ball over (9.9 turnovers per game). Despite the positives on the offensive end, the Wolf Pack will have several factors working against them heading into the first round match-up. Starting point guard Lindsey Drew has been sidelined for a month with an achilles injury, and his absence has left Nevada short handed. The Wolf Pack will likely only play 7 players against the Longhorns, and Nevada also loves to foul. The inside presence of Jericho Sims and Mo Bamba could cause trouble if Wolf Pack players start finding themselves in foul trouble. The Longhorns are coming off a 73-69 loss to Texas Tech in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament. Bamba returned to action against the Red Raiders after missing the previous 2 games with a toe injury. The star freshman claims to be 100% healthy heading into the NCAA tournament, and it would be a welcome site for Shaka Smart and company to have their star player back on the floor at full health. With Eric Davis still out due to an ongoing NCAA investigation, Smart will continue to lean on rising guard Jacob Young, who has elevated his play the past few games. Young poured in a career high 29 points against Texas Tech, and played 32 minutes. The Houston native has given the Longhorns a much needed shooting boast from beyond the arc. Texas and Nevada is set to tip at 3:30 CST on TBS. The winner for face the winner of 2 seed Cincinnati against 15 seed Georgia State. Follow along at HornSports.com for live updates.

  12. On Sunday evening D1Baseball’s Kendall Rogers reported that former Texas baseball coach Augie Garrido was hospitalized on Saturday night as a result of what Rogers says is “a serious medical condition.” Garrido, a coaching icon, spent 20 seasons at Texas and won two national championships with the Longhorns (2002, 2005). He stepped down as head coach in 2016 after finishing the season with a 25-32 record. He is the winningest coach in college baseball history, amassing 1,975 wins over the span of nearly 5 decades. Garrido, along with former LSU head coach Skip Bertman, threw ceremonial first pitches at the LSU – Texas baseball series in Baton Rouge on February 23rd. Since relinquishing his head coaching duties in 2016, Garrido has served as special assistant to athletics director. The university has not provided a statement on the report.

    Thoughts and Takeaways from Texas' series loss to Stanford

    Nice work Jameson. The starting pitching is good, relievers need to step it up. Losing series to LSU and Stanford early in the season sting, but there are plenty of opportunities to win some important series down the road.
  15. The Texas Longhorns earned an invitation to the NCAA Tournament on Sunday evening, their 34th appearance, and will face the Nevada Wolfpack in Nashville, Tennessee (South Region) on Friday. The Longhorns appear as a 10 seed and the Wolfpack, which play in the Mountain West Conference, are the 7-seed in the region. Nevada finished the season at 27-7 (15-3 in the Mountain West). Nevada is coached by Eric Musselman, who assumed the head coaching position in 2015. Texas makes their second appearance in the Big Dance under head coach Shaka Smart, who is still in search of his first win in the event. The Longhorns were upset in the first round by Northern Iowa in 2016 on a half-Court buzzer-beater.
