Breaking: The Longhorns Are Really Fucking Good At Baseball

It brings me great pleasure to report — Texas Baseball is officially back.

8-0 on the season and the clutch gene to go with it. Love to see it.

A hell of a job by the baseball program too. Because the fact of the matter is this, we were abysmal last season. The Horns were the only team in the Big 12 to not qualify for the conference tournament, packing their bags up and heading on their summer vacay in mid-May. The 2019 season was just an unmitigated disaster. David Pierce knew it. I knew it. You knew it. Bevo fucking knew it.

But Coach Pierce didn’t sit around and cry about it, and we didn’t get antsy and fire him. Both Pierce and UT were calm, cool and promised to turn the ship around this offseason. And they sure as hell have done so.

No doubt we had a big offseason in recuriting and bringing in some stud freshmen, but I think a lot of the credit has to go to the addition of both Huston Street and Troy Tulowitzki as assistants on the staff. Because when you have the most athletic coaching staff in college baseball, paired with the most athletic players in college baseball, good things are bound to happen. See you in Omaha:
