  1. Photo: Rob Ferguson USA TODAY Sports The Texas Longhorns will play in their 7th Big 12 Championship game on Saturday evening. Texas advanced to the championship round without playing in the semifinals, thanks to individual(s) in the Kansas program testing positive for COVID. The Longhorns and Oklahoma State Cowboys will meet for the third time this season in the title game, with each holding a regular season win over the other. Texas won at home in the first matchup between the two and Oklahoma State won a 2OT thriller in Stillwater in early February. Both programs are playing high-level basketball. Oklahoma State is riding a three game winning streak and is 8-2 in their last 10 games with losses to Kansas and Baylor. The Pokes are playing in their 4th Big 12 Championship game and won back-to-back conference titles in 2004 & 2005. The Longhorns last played in the championship game in 2011 and lost to Kansas 85-73. A win for Texas would be the first in the Big 12 Championship for the Longhorns and would set the stage nicely for the team's momentum headed into the upcoming NCAA Tournament. What: #13 Texas Longhorns (18-7, 11-6) vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys (20-7, 11-7) When: Saturday, March 13, 2021 Tipoff Time: 5:00 PM Venue: T-Mobile Center Location: Kansas City, MO Television: ESPN/ESPN2/Big 12 Now/ESPN+ Last meeting between these two teams: Oklahoma State defeated Texas 75-67 (February 6, 2021 - Stillwater, OK) All-time series record: Texas leads Oklahoma State 53-46
  2. Photo: Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports The Texas Longhorns (17-7, 11-6) open up Big 12 Conference Tournament Play against the Texas Tech Red Raiders (17-9, 9-8). The Red Raiders swept the Longhorns during the regular season, including a 68-59 win over Shaka Smart's team two weeks ago in Lubbock. Texas hasn't advanced to the semifinals of the conference tournament since 2014, but they hold a three-game winning streak heading into the matchup against Tech in Kansas City. Texas Texas Tech lost their last regular season game, against the Baylor Bears, but won three straight prior to that. Chris Beard's team leads the Big 12 by holding teams to 63.3 points per game. The winner of tonight's matchup will advance to face the winner of Kansas/Oklahoma at 8:30 PM on Friday.

  3. The Texas Longhorns are back in action tonight in Norman, Oklahoma, less than 48 hours after defeating Iowa State in Ames on Tuesday night. The matchup at Lloyd Noble Center will showcase two Top-25 teams that are jockeying for position in the upcoming NCAA Tournament. The Sooners got the best of the Longhorns 80-79 in their first matchup of the regular season, but Shaka Smart's team has performed well on the road and look to win their second straight game. Oklahoma has five wins over Top-15 teams this season and look to add another to their tournament resume with a win over the Longhorns. The Longhorns have found themselves fighting for wins in close games, and fans should expect another close one tonight. Four of the last five games between Texas and Oklahoma have been decided by three or fewer points, including the last two meetings which were each decided by one point.

After winning three of four games against BYU at Disch-Falk Field last week, the Longhorns are back on the home diamond on Tuesday, and travel to San Marcos on Wednesday for a pair of games against the Texas A&M Corpus Christi Islanders and Texas State Bobcats, respectively. The series win against BYU improved the Texas record to 3-4 on the season after David Pierce's squad dropped their first three games of the season at the State Farm College Baseball Showdown in Houston. The Longhorns didn't play either team last season due to COVID-19 cutting the 2020 season short. Texas lost to both teams in the 2019 season.

  7. The Texas Longhorns (4-4, 3-2) will face the TCU Horned Frogs at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth on Saturday evening. TCU (#10 AP, #12 Coaches Poll, #8 College Football Playoff Ranking) has beaten Texas three-straight, including a 31-9 victory last season in Austin. Texas is 2-0 in conference road games this season, while TCU maintains an undefeated record at home this season. TCU head coach Gary Patterson holds a 19-0 record at home when playing as a Top-10 ranked team by the Associated Press. The Horned Frogs are currently ranked #10 in the latest AP Poll. A win by the Longhorns would propel the team to a 5-4 overall record, leaving them one win shy of bowl eligibility. Texas hosts Kansas next weekend in Austin and has remaining games against West Virginia (11/18 – Morgantown, WV) and Texas Tech (11/25 – Austin, TX). Texas Longhorns (4-4, 3-2) vs. TCU Horned Frogs (7-1, 4-1) When: Saturday, November 3, 2017 Kickoff: 6:15 pm Venue: Amon G.

  8. Two new head coaches. Two storied football programs. One big stage. The Texas Longhorns (3-2, 2-0) and the #12 Oklahoma Sooners (4-1, 1-1) will square off for the 112th time on Saturday at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas. Each team brings different momentum into one of college football’s oldest and largest rivalries. The Longhorns won a double-overtime game 40-34 against Kansas State in Austin last weekend, while the Sooners suffered their first loss of the season, at the hands of Iowa State 38-31. Last week doesn’t matter and neither do records in this rivalry. A win by either team lays out a path for success as they head down the second-half of the college football season. The Longhorns would maintain an undefeated Big 12 record by upsetting the Sooners, while the Sooners would get back on track for competing for a shot at the league’s crown and more.

  9. TEXAS VS. KANSAS STATE When: Saturday, October 7, 2017 Venue: Darrell K. Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium Location: Austin, TX Time: 6:05 Kickoff TV: FS1 The Line: Texas (-3.5) All-time record: Kansas State leads Texas – 10 wins, 7 losses Last meeting: Kansas State defeated Texas 24-21 (10/22/16 Manhattan, KS) The Texas Longhorns (2-2, 1-0) will host the Kansas State Wildcats (3-1, 1-0) at Darrel K. Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium at 6:00 pm on Saturday evening. The Longhorns will be playing at home for the first time since September 9th, when they won their first game of the season by defeating San Jose State 56-0. Both teams are 1-0 in conference play, with Texas defeating Iowa State on the road last Thursday night, and Kansas State beating Baylor in Manhattan last Saturday 33-20. Kansas State leads the all-time series in wins (1o wins, 7 losses) with 7 of those wins delivered during head coach Bill Snyder’s tenure. Historically, the Longhorns fare better against the Wildcats when playing in Austin, holding a 6-3 all-time record. The Kansas State offense will be led by senior quarterback Jesse Ertz, who has rushed for 221 yards and two touchdowns in his last two games. Ertz has 1,395 career rushing yards and passed former Wildcat quarterback Michael Bishop (1997-98) for third place in school history in career rushing yards. The Wildcat defense has done an excellent job limiting opponent scoring and forcing turnovers. They held Baylor to just 84 yards rushing last weekend in Manhattan and currently lead the Big 12 in total defense. In each of their first four games Kansas State has held its opponent to 21 points or less and rank 9th nationally in turnover margin (+6). Texas lists Shane Buechele or Sam Ehlinger as the starting quarterback for the game, but much will depend on the progress of Buechele’s ankle, which he sprained in the win over Iowa State. Buechele was 19-26 and threw for 171 yards and one touchdown against the Cyclones. Buechele has thrown a touchdown pass in 13 of 14 games since arriving on the 40 Acres. Ehlinger won his first career start when Texas shutout San Jose State 56-0 and came up short in his second start when the Longhorns lost to USC on the road in double overtime 27-24. The Texas defense allowed just 10 rushing yards and 7 points to Iowa State last week and picked off quarterback Jacob Park three times. In the season opener against Maryland, the Terrapins offense had its way with the Longhorns, passing for 219 yards and rushing for 263 yards. Over the last three games, Texas’ defense is allowing just 11.3 points per game, 298.3 total yards per game and just 41.0 rushing yards per game.
  10. The Texas Longhorns (1-2, 0-0) will face the Iowa State Cyclones (2-1, 0-0) on Thursday evening in a prime-time matchup scheduled to air nationally on ESPN. The meeting is the 15th between the two schools, with the Longhorns holding a 12-2 record all-time against the Cyclones. Texas looks to carry momentum from a disappointing 27-24 overtime loss to USC two weeks ago and win its second straight game as conference play begins at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames. Iowa State boasts a 2-1 record after winning its opener against Northern Iowa, followed by an overtime loss to in-state rival Iowa and throttling Akron 41-14. . Last season Texas defeated Iowa State 27-6 in Austin to snap a 3-game losing streak. In their most recent trip to Ames (2015), the Cyclones shut out Charlie Strong’s Longhorns 24-0 Texas Longhorns vs. Iowa State Cyclones Date: Thursday, September 28th, 2017 Time: 7:00 PM CST Television: ESPN Venue: Jack Trice Stadium Location: Ames, IA Relevant Articles and Information: Stock Report on the Longhorns – Week 3 Quarterback controversy in Austin?

  11. The Texas Longhorns (1-1, 0-0) will face the USC Trojans (2-0, 0-0), the sixth meeting between the two teams, at the Los Angeles Coliseum today at 7:30 pm. Texas looks to carry their momentum from the 56-0 win over San Jose State last weekend and win its second straight game, in the team’s first road contest of the season. USC, ranked #4 in the country, holds a 2-0 record after defeating Western Michigan in the season opener, and dismantling #14 Stanford at the Coliseum last weekend. The two teams last met in the 2005 BCS National Championship Game in which the Longhorns prevailed 41-38. Texas coach Tom Herman boasts impressive career numbers against ranked opponents as a head coach, with a perfect 6-0 record against ranked opponents, including a 3-0 record against Top-10 opponents.

  12. The Texas Longhorns (0-1, 0-0) will face the San Jose State Spartans (1-1, 0-0), the first meeting between the two teams, at Royal – Memorial Stadium today at 2:30 pm. The Longhorns look to win their first game of the season after suffering a season-opening 51-41 loss to the Maryland Terrapins last week at home. San Jose State lost to South Florida in the team’s season opener, following up the next week with a win against Cal Poly. Texas quarterback Shane Buechele is recovering from an injured shoulder sustained in the loss to the Terrapins, which means true freshman quarterback Sam Ehlinger should see plenty of snaps today as the likely starter.

  13. Happy Hump Day, Seamheads The time is here: Postseason play The Big 12 Tournament kicked off this morning with WVU taking the coffee cake 9 AM game from Baylor 11-1 in 8 innings. Ok State posted a 3-0 shutout over #1 seed Texas Tech. TCU is currently trailing Kansas 3-2 T4. The Longhorns play Oklahoma tonight at 7:30. TV: Fox Sports Net HD; (676-1 DirecTV) Radio: 104.9 FM Stream audio: www.texassports.com Live Stats: http://www.big12sports.com/Scoreboard.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=10410&&ATCLID=&SPSID=&SPID=13131&d=05-24-2017 I'll be on Twitter tonight for the game. Horns can really help themselves out with a good tournament showing. Nick Kennedy will get the start tonight for Texas. See y'all in a couple of hours. Hook Em!
  14. 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. Quick matchup notes: TEXAS (32-19, 9-11) vs. WEST VIRGINIA (31-20, 11-10) May 19-21, 2017 Where: Austin, Texas (UFCU Disch-Falk Field) Time: Friday at 6:30 p.m. CT, Saturday at 4 p.m. CT, Sunday at 1 p.m. CT TV: Longhorn Network Radio: 104.9 FM The Horn/1260 AM—Craig Way (Play-by-Play), Roger Wallace (Analyst) Live stats: Sidearmstats.com/Texas/Baseball All-time series: West Virginia leads, 8-4 PROBABLE STARTING PITCHERS FRIDAY—WVU RHP BJ Myers (4-2, 3.90) vs. RHP Nolan Kingham (7-4, 2.90) SATURDAY—WVU RHP Alek Manoah (1-1, 2.70) vs. RHP Morgan Cooper (6-2, 2.27) SUNDAY—WVU TBD vs. UT RHP Kyle Johnston (2-1, 3.24)
  15. Happy Tuesday Seamheads. Absolutely huge week for Texas Baseball starts tonight. The Horns host Incarnate Word in the Tuesday evening matchup, which precedes a 3-game set at UFCU Disch Falk Fields against West Virginia to close out the regular season schedule. Texas currently sits at 31-19, (9-11 in Big 12,) and just outside of the Top 25. As of today, Texas is projected as a #3 seed in what would likely be a highly unfavorable regional setting, (think Oregon St.) Texas certain can make some noise this week with a 3/4 or 4/4 record against Incarnate Word and WVU. A 2/2 or worse showing would almost certainly solidify their low seed in a tough regional. Additionally their Big 12 tournament performance will be something that the committee will look at, but their overall body of work will probably carry greater weight than merely the tournament play. A look at the numbers as of today: Warren Nolan: RPI: 23 SOS: 11 D1Baseball.com RPI: 23 SOS: 14 vs. Top 25 RPI: 4-12, with 8 of those 12 losses by 1 run vs. Top 50 RPI: 7-13 vs. Top 100 RPI: 21-18 Texas has all the numbers of a solid 2-seed, but after getting swept in Ft Worth, they're back to being projected as a 3-seed. Win this week, and it changes things, and Texas will once again be in the position of a 2-seed. Stumble and it's even more likely that they're headed up to Oregon for a regional appearance in Corvallis. *********************************************** Tonight's matchup is as follows: First Pitch: 6:30 PM CDT TV: LHN Radio: 104.9 FM Stream: www.texassports.com Twitter PBP: https://twitter.com/joeywa_44 Nick Kennedy gets the nod on the bump tonight. ************************************************* Notes for the week: I'll be traveling this weekend and won't be on the WVU call. Perhaps Will or Harrison will pick up the slack I'll start a weekend baseball thread on Friday morning as a reminder, but I won't be available for too much banter or any PBP. With HS Playoffs taking place around the state, I've heard that Coach Allen will be at the Heath vs Woodlands series on Thursday in Georgetown watching a few players. Likely that our own Donald Boyles will be out that way as well, camera in hand! As the father of a college player, this always makes me happy: 9 players for UT were named to the Big 12 All Academic Team; http://texassports.com/news/2017/5/16/baseball-places-nine-on-academic-all-big-12-teams.aspx ************************************************* That's all for now; see y'all in a couple of hours and Hook Em!
  16. Happy Friday, Seamheads. A quick preview of this weekend's match vs TCU, courtesy TexasSports.com. No. 24 TEXAS (31-16, 9-8) at No. 9 TCU (32-11, 12-6) May 5-7, 2017 Where: Fort Worth, Texas (Lupton Stadium) Time: Friday at 7 p.m., Saturday at 12 p.m., Sunday at 1 p.m. TV: Friday—ESPNU, Saturday—ESPN2, Sunday—ESPNU Radio: 104.9 FM The Horn/1260 AM—Craig Way (Play-by-Play), Roger Wallace (Analyst) Live stats: gofrogs.com All-time series: Texas leads, 223-68-2 Complete Game Notes PROBABLE STARTING PITCHERS FRIDAY—TCU LHP Nick Lodolo (5-1, 4.39) vs. Texas RHP Morgan Cooper (6-2, 1.45) SATURDAY—TCU RHP Brian Howard (6-3, 5.43) s. Texas RHP Nolan Kingham (7-3, 2.05) SUNDAY—TCU RHP Mitchell Traver (2-1, 3.95) vs. Texas RHP Kyle Johnston (2-1, 3.29) Texas controls its own destiny as we get into the final couple of weeks of the season. Win this series in Ft. Worth and the series vs. West Virginia at DFF in a couple of weeks, and Texas is set up nicely for post-season play as they enter the Big12 tournament. Drop either or both, and the post-season will likely be a very tough assignment in an environment like LSU, Stanford or the like. I'll be doing the PBP on Twitter this weekend. Here's the link if you're interested in following. https://twitter.com/joeywa_44 I'll try to post some updates in this thread as the weekend progresses. Please feel free to chime in throughout the weekend with your thoughts. We encourage the banter! Now, who wants some frog legs for Cinco de Mayo? HookEm!
  17. Happy Friday Seamheads. I won't be doing the games today due travel. Texas really needs this series. Of course that is beginning to sound like a broken record.

  23. Longhorns Spank the Sooners 9-3, Off a Stellar Night From the Clemens Brothers By Will Baizer The Longhorns put away the Sooners tonight to the tune of 9-3 and take this year’s series by taking the first two games. However, the game started out less than stellar for the Longhorns. The Sooners came right out of the gate taking advantage of a rocky start for Morgan Cooper. After Morgan loaded the bases, Oklahoma’s star LF Steele Walker knocked a single into left field to score two. It seemed like it was going to be a long day for Morgan Cooper (4-2 with 1.79 ERA). However, after that 4th batter, Morgan Cooper didn’t allow a hit until the top of the 7th inning, retiring 22 batters without a hit. Coach Pierce praised his ace’s turn around after the game by saying, “[Cooper] made a great in game adjustment by really pitching backwards. Going to the curveball early in the count. They’re a really good fastball hitting team, and I thought he did a really good job of mixing up his pitches to get them off the fastball.” Morgan Cooper ended the game allowing 3 ER over 6.2IP and getting 7Ks with 108 pitches. The Longhorns have had trouble giving their arms some back up on the scoreboard. No today. Texas faced the Oklahoma’s Jake Irvin (5-0 with 1.3 ERA), yet they were able to score 2 runs off the Sooners’ ace and force him out of the game after 3⅔ innings. It was a family affair in the Disch as Kody Clemens (2-4 HR and 2B) and Kacy Clemens (2-4 5RBIs and HR) had enormous offensive days for the Longhorns. The brothers together drove in 6 runs and each one of them homered. But it started when the Longhorns responded to the Sooners’ 2 run top of the 1st with a bit of offense of their own. The game started with Kody Clemens taking Oklahoma’s ace, Jake Irvin (), to a ten pitches. Two outs later Travis Jones (2-3 RBI and 2Bx2) doubled, one of his 2 doubles (his 9th and 10th of the season). Kacy Clemens then went on to drive in Jones to cut the Sooners lead to 1. The Sooner lead didn’t last much longer as Kody Clemens took Jake Irvin to deep left field to tie the game at 2. Funnily enough Kody unintentionally called his home run in the dugout before the at bat. “It was funny, in the dugout, I was talking to Nolan Kingham, and I was like, ‘If you hit a fly ball over the stands that block the wind, it’s just going to go because the flags are howling.’ Then I hit it, and it felt really good off the bat. I was just hoping it would catch the wind, and it did. I got into the dugout and Nolan was like, ‘You literally just talked about that,’” Kody recalled. The game stayed tied for one more inning until the bottom of the 5th. Then the flood gates opened. With 2 outs, the Longhorns got SS David Hamilton (0-2 2Rs) on base with a walk. Then Kody Clemens doubled to put runners on 2nd and 3rd base with Tate Shaw (2-5 2RBIs) up to bat with 2 outs. After a fierce at bat, Shaw hit the ball right at Jake Irvin’s left ankle and it took a fortuitous bounce to the right to allow Shaw to reach 1st and Hamilton to score, giving the Longhorns a 3-2 run. But the Longhorns weren’t done. Travis Jones walked to loaded the bases with 2 outs. The team captain Kacy Clemens stepped up to the plate. Next thing the fans knew, the ball was sailing over the right field wall. People we’re on their feet. Echoes of “O-U Sucks” ringing through the air. The cheering didn’t die down until the inning was over. Kacy replayed the home run after the game, “It actually got in on me a little bit. I didn’t fully get the barrel to it, but I knew I got enough of it. Off the bat I thought, for sure double. When you’re rounding the bases, you’re looking for the ball to come down before the wall. And then it goes over. I was fired up.” At this point Oklahoma started to bring out the bench players, but the Longhorns continued the scoring into the 6th inning. Tate Shaw drove in another run when, with bases loaded, he hit it to the 2nd baseman, who wanted to throw to 1st but the 1st baseman wasn’t there. Travis Jones came up right after and hit into a fielder choice that scored another run. Morgan Cooper’s line will show that he let in 3 runs, but the 3rd came in the top of the 7th when Nick Kennedy walked in a run. Blair Henley then came into the finish out the game over the next two innings to seal the win for the Longhorns. When asked what Kacy thought about the season so far, he responded, “This team is weird. We know we have the pieces to the puzzle. It’s just a matter of if we come out and put them together.” The Longhorns are staring a Sooner sweeping in the face on Sunday, as Kyle Johnston takes the mound. -----------------------------------------------------
  24. Hey seamheads, I'm back. It's been a week off for me, but now we get back to it. Game Time: 7 PM Location: UFCU Disch Falk Field TV: Fox Sports 1 Radio: 104.9 FM Audio Stream: www.texassports.com Projected Starters FRIDAY UT RHP Nolan Kingham (4-2, 1.02) vs. Oklahoma RHP Dylan Grove (1-1, 2.88) SATURDAY UT RHP Morgan Cooper (3-2, 1.44) vs. Oklahoma RHP Jake Irvin (5-0, 1.16) SUNDAY UT TBA vs. Oklahoma TBA Seems like this is a weekly statement, but Texas really needs to take this series. OU has been playing well, but I don't believe they're as good as their record, just as Texas isn't as bad as theirs. With D1 Baseball coming out with their mid-season postseason projections, and having Texas as a 3-seed in the Corvallis, OR regional, you can bet that winning and improving their place in the postseason are priorities #1 & #2. While I would absolutely love to see Texas in Corvallis, Oregon State is not really what I'd call a "good" draw. They are playing extremely well right now and are the best team in the nation. Let's see if we can start this thing off with a bang. Aaron Ross will throw out the first pitch. As usual, I'll be on PBP on Twitter, and we'll have discussion throughout the game on here. Look forward to the banter! HookEm!
  25. Hey Seamheads. I'm starting this thread but I won't be doing many updates as I'm in Austin watching my boy. This will be up for the weekend so feel free to chime in and update at will. All three games are on ESPN3 & WatchESPN app
