Directors Cup Thread

Texas starts their Director's Cup championship defense, looking for a three peat. Fall sports are few and not our strength but good finishes here can make it near impossible to hold Texas off in the Spring. If Texas puts up even a few zeroes, the odds of winning fall drastically.

#1 Texas volleyball started strong, traveling to Columbus and beating #7 Ohio State in 2 matches, 6-1 sets overall. They were upset in the elite 8 last year and look like strong championship contenders once again.

 

Meanwhile Texas soccer looks for their first postseason win in 5 years. They return a lot of experience and have some top line stars in Trinity Byars and Lexi Missimo. They played a competitive match against #1 UNC losing 2-0. They rebounded with a 3-2 victory of Florida.

Texas went on to sweep Stanford. 4 high quality wins to start the season. The level of competition drops with 4 easy non-conference home matches before Big 12 play starts. Baylor and Kansas are the only other Big12 teams in the top 25...so don't look for Texas to be challenged much this season.

Volleyball beat up on 4 cupcakes prior to starting Big 12 play against a Kansas team that just dropped out of the top 25 rankings. Kansas took the first 2 sets in Lawrence 23-25 but Texas battled back and dominated the last 3 sets to secure the victory and remain undefeated.

#25 women's soccer played #12 TCU to a 1-1 tie in Fort Worth. The teams only loss on the year was to #1 UNC 2-0. They are 6-1-3. This has the makings of the strongest soccer team in sometime and they will look to win the first NCAA tournament game in 5 years. Tieing the best team in the conference to open conference play helps in the big 12 regular season championship run.

Here is some welcome non-football related news:

Men's cross country finished 12th at the Cowboy Jamboree. 12th may not sound all that impressive but this is a loaded CC meet with 10 of the top 12 teams in the nation competing. Texas did best some teams ranked in the teens. I'd look for this Texas team to finish similar to last year when NCAAs roll around, just outside of the top 10. 

Our women's CC team just isn't that strong across the board. We have one strong runner, Beth Ramos, and I wouldn't be surprised if she makes NCAA as an individual while the team fails to qualify. Her presence at NCAA would at least secure us some points for the Directors cup. 

Women's volleyball swept OU in dominant fashion to go to 2-0 on the year in Big 12 play. 

#25 W soccer is up 1-0 in Lubbock at they attempt to avenge the football team's loss. 

Women's golf is up to a #5 ranking after back to back 2nd place tournament finishes.
