It Was Fine Until The 6th Inning

NCAA Baseball: College World Series-Arkansas vs Texas Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Texas played Arkansas and it did not end well. Again.

“I’m not shell-shocked,” Longhorns coach David Pierce said. “It’s just part of it. It’s not the way we wished it had gone. Unfortunately, it got away from us, and we couldn’t overcome the deficit.”

The first five innings were fine, but then came the sixth.

It didn’t take long for things to unravel for Texas. Well, actually, it did. Texas trailed Arkansas just 3-2 after the fifth inning in what was a competitive game. Then, the sixth inning started. Texas’ ace pitcher Nolan Kingham left the game after giving up back-to-back walks. Then redshirt junior Parker Joe Robinson walked two-straight batters, including one with bases loaded.

Is Tom Herman’s 2018 team underrated?

Congrats to Vince Young. Young made the College Football Hall of Fame 2018 ballot.

The widow of Lifetime Longhorn Greg Ploetz sued the NCAA for negligence and wrongful death after her husband died of brain injuries. Boston University doctors concluded Ploetz has Stage 4 CTE.

Just FYI. Barry Switzer resigned on June 19, 1989. Celebrate accordingly tomorrow.
