The Longhorn Republic shifts expectations

What are the expectations for the baseball team as the season comes to a close and what can we expect from Sam Ehlinger in 2019?

NCAA Football: Texas Orange-White Spring Game John Gutierrez-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas baseball team had its worst stretch of the season, being swept by the Oklahoma State Cowboys and giving up 36 runs in three games. Now as they enter into the final stretch of the season, they need to look for answers if they want to salvage a once-promising season. So what does David Pierce need to do in order to right the ship as they welcome the West Virginia Mountaineers to Austin?

As the Longhorns head into the summer, the football team has questions that need to be answered, including the quarterback position. Nobody is questioning Sam Ehlinger as the starter, but what are fair expectations for him heading into his junior season? And with his style as a runner and injury history, will Casey Thompson be ready to step into the role if-necessary?
