  1. I tend to think that CDC is aware, and possibly making suggestions, but I don’t believe he is directing the moves. He is letting DP make the decisions that DP feels are necessary. Again, just my opinion here.
  2. Miller reassigned as a non-coaching staff member/assistant. This opens up the option for Pierce to hire two paid assistants and a volunteer assistant. Still wondering who would come to UT as assistants with the way the program appears to be right now. To me, it just seems like an assistant would likely think twice accepting a position under Pierce with how these last two weeks have shaken out. Just my 2¢. Also: FR RHP Jack Arthur has entered the portal tonight. He saw no action this season for Texas
  3. Texas has finished the season ranked #8 in the country by D1Baseball.com in their final rankings.
  4. There will likely be more players hitting the portal in short order.
  5. Texas needs a recruiter, pitching & hitting coach.
  6. RS SO RHP Jace Hutchins and FR RHP Joshua Stewart are now in the portal. Additionally, the following Texas players are also in the portal: Jr LHP/1B Cameron Dayton FR RHP Carson McKinney So LHP Caden Noah
  7. We can discuss portal activity here. Big name to start this off:
  8. That’s a very inaccurate description of the sequence of plays that happened, how it is written anyway. I now understand why you thought what you did. And no insult @tejasrulz. Phone auto corrected ‘vocal’ to ‘vial’. Gotta love technology.
  9. When coaches are making what they do these days, I think they are not above being questioned on their decisions. They don’t owe us answers, but we can watch how they grow/change from their past successes/failures/decisions. Fan expectations are always fun to discuss. Augie didn’t win it all in Omaha with Texas until year 5, and Gus was here in a very different time. While hoping for similar success is fine, I think expecting it is a bit of a reach. That said, 3 trips to Omaha in his first 5 years at the helm at Texas is pretty good. It’s really no different with the fan expectations in football. Basketball tends to be a bit more forgiving. Texas fans want Texas to be on top, in every sport, every year. And that’s great. But realistically everyone knows, (although many won’t admit,) that it’s not truly possible to do that very often, if at all. Hence you get the complaining and grandstanding often seen on message boards and social media platforms. Also keep in mind, those on message boards and social media are probably the most vocal of sports fans, yet make up probably less than 5% of the total fanbase.
  10. @Eastexhorn I misspoke. There were 2 outs, nobody on when Morehouse HBP Aggie Rock. It wasn’t the Leadoff man as I stated above. After Rick advanced to 2B on the 1-1 check swing, (explained above) there was an RBI Double to score Rock from 2B. Next batter KL to end the 8th.
  11. I addressed that above and you replied. There were 2 outs, runner on 1B due to being HBP as the Leadoff hitter of the frame. Count was 1-1, next pitch is inside, batter checks his swing. Ardoin appeals the check swing to the 1B umpire, instead of throwing down to 2B. 1B ump says batter didn’t offer. So runner on 2B, 2 outs and a 2-1 count. I didn’t see it as “quitting” in any shape or form. Let me know if that answers your question.
  12. I tend to think Pierce is a good coach. Not great, but good. His time at UT and success getting the team to Omaha cannot be denied. Now, he still has work to do to get the team over the hump in Omaha. That can be said for many, but he’s shown he can get them there. That said, I don’t know what to make of the direction right this second. The whole Allen thing is concerning. My hope is that there is a plan that has been in place and it’s not a knee-jerk reaction. Also, I don’t know how much input CDC had in this, if any at all. Some of the answers will come out in the coming days/weeks, some won’t. Where the board’s baseball posters’ opinions fall on all of this is anyones guess. I’d say it’s likely all over the place. And right now, dropping two in Omaha, and one to A&M no less, still stings to most-me included. I’d imagine that once the new hires are announced, things will become more clear, both with direction of the program and with opinions on Pierce.
  13. Why not? People can have an opinion that 3 trips to Omaha in 5 seasons qualifies as success, yet still have the opinion that this situation with Allen is a blunder. I don’t think it’s an either/or thing.
