Texas Loses 7-6; Saturday Open Thread and Retrospective

Brandon Loy was a part of better times for Texas baseball - USA TODAY Sports

Texas baseball lost another game it had no business losing, this time 7-6 in extra innings.

The Horns blew a 4-0 early lead on Friday when Parker French and the defense became unglued. Texas managed to tie the game twice but ultimately couldn't grab a lead and win.

Texas got early homers from Ty "Why Have You Just Been Pitching All Year?" Marlow and Ben "Our Freshman DH Leadoff Hitter Leads the Team In Homers but is Hitting Just .260" Johnson before...

Ah, screw it. Here are some videos of happier times.

And finally: This is your open thread. Game time is 2 PM.
