****Texas Baseball v W. Virginia Official Weekend Series Thread****

Recommended Posts

Lace up those spikes, put on your game faces and pop that mitt Seamheads, because it's Friday!

 

The final weekend series of the regular season begins today as the Longhorns take on the Mountaineers in a 3-game set at UFCU Disch Falk Field.

 

As I mentioned Tuesday, I am not going to be around much this weekend, so hopefully Will, Harrison and/or Aaron can pick up the slack. Feel free to chime in on the game thread.

 

Let's see if we can end the regular season on a high note. A series win would be very good for the Horns and their post-season seeding.

I'm coming to Austin this weekend for a wedding.  Will be in tomorrow and leaving Sunday.  Are tickets readily available for the game Sunday?  And if so, how would I go about purchasing a couple?  Thanks guys!  HOOK EM!

Just go online and you can have a ticket in your phone or you simply just walk up to the ticket booth and buy one. I would suggest buying the cheapest ticket available. There will be plenty of seats to move around.

Need to take 2 of 3

That would certainly help.

 

I will say, this year's team is light years better than last. Still a work in progress for Pierce but I like what I've seen for the most part, especially considering he has none of his recruits here.

    • First half was 12min quarters, 2nd half was 10min.  OL didn't get enough push on run plays for sure, hard to tell from 3rd row at stadium about pass pro.  i thought most punts were pretty good, looked like he had a 60yarder in there.  3 10+ yard runs from RBs all game that I can remember, 1 by Young and 1 by Carter, Carter just isn't impressive.  J McCollough with a few pressures and a coule sacks. Maybe he gets more time a B-Backer?  Collin and LJH both played well. Reece played decent from what I rememeber.  4th Q, Thompson with back to back dimes and then a 20yarder couple plays later.  Overall, first half, we just arnt crisp. Penalties will kill drives again. I just don't think we can recover from a penalty Bc yards seem too hard to come by at this point. OL needs to spend every waking second together. Maybe sleep next to each other in sleeping bags. RBs are opposite of dynamic. Duvernay with 1 very nice deep catch where he got hit and held on. No much else. LJH and CJ are studs. No huge drops on the day. Few close calls on tipped passes. Sam no Shane stood out, neither will take over the game. Neither was bad. Horrible fumbled exchange on RPO early btw Sam and Carter.  Zero sum game, many guys that will play snaps out and Anderson should take over at LT in a couple months.  Hope recruiting went great this weekend! Weather held up great. 
    • Think we're offering Card as a QB or ATH?
    • We don’t like to reach out to kids during their trips. Will reach out once he leaves campus.
    • My five quick thoughts 1. The offensive line isn't much better than last year's version. 2. The defense looks salty. Roach and Hager definitely stood out tonight. 3. LJH is the best running back on the squad, with Yoder coming in second. 4. The two young QB's will be at the top of the depth chart next year. 5. LJH and Johnson will be the offense this next season. After what I saw tonight I am downgrading my expectations for next season. 7 wins in the regular season.
