With Texas losing to the aggies and Nebraska getting upset by Kansas State, patienthornsfan notes that the only way for the Horns to get into Sunday's title game is with a win over the Huskers and an aggie loss to K-State. It doesn't seem likely that the Wildcats can pull off a second upset in the tournament, but their bats were sharp against Texas as well and there's always the possibility of a&m having a letdown after the big win over Texas. Today is Round 2 on the other side of the bracket, with Missouri playing Baylor at 4:30 followed by a postseason version of the Bedlam Series (ou vs OSU) in the nightcap.
Regardless of what happens in the KSU-a&m game, it's important for Texas to come out playing well against Nebraska on Saturday. A win there should lock down one of the top 3 or 4 national seeds in the NCAA Tournament, thus making the Longhorns a Super Regional host if they win their Sub-Regional.
Daniel Gibson is not reinventing the wheel in Cleveland. He isn't putting up double digits on a regular basis, and he isn't a go-to player in crunch time for the Cavs (although that's not saying a whole lot). That said, D-Gib is performing admirably for Lebron James's squad. Gibson scored 9 points in 16 minutes last night and is the only former Horn still in the NBA playoffs. Since the playoffs began, D-Gib has scored 6 points or more in 5 of 12 games, not bad for a rookie second round pick. So congrats to Daniel.
We know it's old news by now, but if you haven't yet heard, the AFCA has recognized The University and its class-act football program for high graduation rates. This is just another example of how it's a great time to be a Longhorn fan. Congratulations and thanks to Mack Brown, his staff, and most of all the players for making it so.
In case you don't remember your OU weekend experience, Texas Gal's guest spot on EDSBS pretty much hit the nail on the head. This piece isn't quite as memorable as this piece EDSBS wrote the day after the Rose Bowl, which really should be required summer reading for all Longhorn fans. Another piece that should be required summer reading is MGoBlog's "Five Stages of Vince Young". We just like remembering how awesome VY was. Ender's Game was also a good book, and we'd recommend that too.
