To quote the great Harry Doyle “1 hit? 1 g()dd@mn hit. That’s all we got?” 

Its about time you get your ass back in the captains chair Joeywa and go on a run. I’m holding you personally responsible. If you hadn’t have gone off to sip mai tai cocktails and work on your tan, this team would still be on its run. Now sing a rousing stanza of Oh Canada embrace your homeland and steer us to a win. ;)

Call it a hunch but we'll need more than 1 hit to win the game. 2 Big XII shutouts in a row suck.

People call Smart out for not recruiting scores, can we call Pierce out for not recruiting hitters?

You can do what you like, but keep in mind with Hamilton and DJ arguably two of the top 3 hitters are out.

I made the same coach analogy a few weeks ago, with my thought that Smart was getting hammered for similar issues but not Pierce.  I hope both coaches can put it together and sustain winning programs.

Difference being Pierce took Texas to a Regional final in his first year, and Omaha in his second year.  I think he has earned some leniency, certainly more so than Smart.

Just food for thought with my analogy.  Smart has gone to a Final 4, which is pretty damn impressive, but that hasn’t helped us at all.

Exactly.  Pierce has done it at Texas in his first 2 seasons.

Augie went to Omaha just once in his first 5 seasons at UT.

Pierce has done it at Texas with the pieces of a team that 25-32 the year prior to his arrival. This guy can coach and has been successful here. Remember people wanted to run Augie out of town the first time they saw Jeff Ontiveras bunt... this team has been more snakebit than any I can remember and still can win the conference. Let’s tap the breaks on the David Pierce is Shaka Smart.

Never said he was Smart, just pointing out the criticism of both.  Not holding out for a conference championship, but a strong end to the season would be great.
