Tonight at 7 p.m.(eastern) the two most storied programs in college baseball history face off. With the winner in the driver's seat to make it to the championship series. As a fan and player this is what you want and look forward to. In order to be the best you have to beat the best. Texas has a huge challenge in front of them taking on the best pitcher in the country(Strasburg may throw 103 mph, Keane is still a much better pitcher in my book). Texas is putting a guy on the mound as the likes of which I doubt the Sun Devils have faced all year as well. With a combined 11 national titles and 54 CWS appearances between these two ball clubs, this is baseball magic coming together.
Forget LSU(until the 1990's they were not a baseball powerhouse) forget USC(a program that I do not even know the last time they played in a regional). So as I think back to that wonderful January evening in 2006 when Longhorns team faced a huge challenge(as I am sure they are underdogs again tonight), but had their ace lifting them to a wonderful victory. The stage is set again tonight as the Longhorn's ace can place his team on his back and lead the most storied baseball program in the history of college baseball one step closer to that championship.
