  1. I think the thought process is the 4-seeds they've faced in previous regionals haven't had a pitcher like Paul Skenes who can carry a team. Air Force hasn't played like a 4-seed when he is on the mound.
  2. Not a big believer in ‘must win’ games when you are already in the NCAA tournament field, but Texas could sure do themselves a lot of favors by winning this afternoon.
  3. Believe I saw a stat yesterday where Texas has won 6 straight series in Lubbock. Tough place to play as a pitcher. The ballpark is a launching pad and the wind will be blowing straight out most of the time. Should be a good test to open up conference play.
  4. Momentum could be shifting. Texas has cut the lead to 1. Marcus Carr is locked in right now.
  5. About 20 minutes til tip. Iowa State-Wisconsin just wrapped up a little bit ago.
  6. Texas up 50-42. This is the best Dylan Disu and Marcus Carr have looked in a while.
  7. Texas starting to settle in a little. Andrew Jones connects on a pair of 3’s. VT Tech up 14-13
  8. Texas is 0 for 7 from the field to start this one. And a handful of those were really good looks.
  9. This should be a fun one. Texas is looking for their first tournament win since 2014.
  10. For a program that hasn't won a tournament game in 8 years, one win would sure feel nice. Obviously some people had higher expectations but it's been a long time since they've simply won a game. I would consider it an acceptable first year if Beard got this team to the round of 32.
  11. This is a very tough blow for Texas. Witt was poised for a huge year. The Longhorns will definitely need some arms to emerge in the bullpen now because Gordon and Duplantier are likely to stay starters moving forward.
  12. The Texas starting rotation suffered a major blow Thursday morning when it was announced sophomore pitcher Tanner Witt would undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the remainder of the 2022 season. Witt was scratched from his scheduled start last Sunday due to the arm discomfort and underwent additional testing, which revealed the UCL injury. Witt is projected to be one of the top 2023 prospects in the MLB draft. David Pierce will likely have to turn to sophomore lefty Lucas Gordon in Witt's usual Sunday starting spot. Gordon has thrown 12 innings this year and has a .75 ERA to go along with 6 strikeouts. The Longhorns are scheduled to open up a 3-game series at South Carolina tomorrow evening.
  13. These weeks with two midweek games certainly test pitching depth. When they shift to one midweek game in a few weeks it should allow one of Gordon or Duplantier to shift back to the bullpen, which will be a welcome addition. Personally, I would keep Gordon as the midweek starter. Harrison, Stehle and Nixon seem to be the preferred bullpen arms right now. Throw Duplantier in that mix and get 1-2 other arms to emerge and that should be good enough when combined with the starting rotation Texas is rolling out. Interested to see how they bounce back this weekend against a South Carolina team who is struggling a bit.
