  • College Baseball World Series

    Living in Austin, I've really grown to like college baseball. Especially the World Series tournament. Texas is stacked though, they have way too much pitching. Up 2-0 on Arkansas already in the bottom of the 2nd. Texas batting.

    Anyone else watching this? SEC has 4 teams in the final 8. Pretty impressive. Georgia won earlier 8-7 over Arizona.

    Hey tx, check this out if you get a chance.

    The other day you said St. Louis is a baseball town.

    Well maybe so, but this is small town USA and it lives and breathes baseball, to the tune of 13 NAIA world series titles.

        Texas and Cal State Fullerton look to be in the driver's seat so far. The new format also helps teams that win their first two games.

        Texas just has way too much pitching.

            The CBWS is falling into place for the Longhorns. They will go with the ace, J.P. Howell on Saturday. The bullpen will have two days of full rest. South Carolina defeated Cal State Fullerton last night to force a do or die game for both teams today.

            Get ready to light the tower Orange Austin.....

              Fullerton v Texas for the marbles

              No contest. Texas will win Saturday and Sunday for the National Championship.

              "Light the tower orange. The 2004 Texas Longhorns are the CWS National Champions." what Craig Way will say after the Horns win on KFNS 1300 the Zone.

                Fullerton up 1-0

                Wow, tough first inning for the Horns. Three unearned runs. First Baseman Curtis Thigpen dropped a throw, missed one from the SS but that was a bad throw. The Texas pitching staff suffered 4 unearned runs in a 6-4 loss.

                Game 2 is today at 2 PM EST. Fullerton can win the National Championship today which would be a pretty big upset.

                  Congratulations to Cal State Fullerton for winning the College World Series. Texas just had too many errors to overcome the deficit. Fullerton got some outstanding pitching also.

                    CSF proved they were the better team. Now if they could just get rid of the paper champion in NCAA 1A football.

                      Hey TX, what's up with your coach showing his students and the rest of the U.S. how to be a poor sport. I didn't get to see either game and was surprised at both the results, but was their some consiracy I missed that made him snub the NCAA?

                        It was blown WAAAAAYYYYYY out of proportion. The NCAA rep told Auggie Garrido that it was optional for the team to come out and accept the second place trophy.

                        The media just created something out of nothing. Imagine that.

                            Top 25 College Mascots - 2006

                            Monte's charitable and community service activities are unmatched in college athletics. Raising thousands of "fur made" dollars for local children's charities keeps this bear quite busy all year round, and that's how he likes it.

                            Texas Itching to End Sooners' Winning Streak
                            by DJRamFan
                            Longhorns looking for first win in six tries

                            Oct. 3, 2005

                            AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - After all the talk about beating Oklahoma and possibly ending the losing streak, this is the week the No. 2 Texas Longhorns finally get their chance to do it.

                            This year's Texas-Oklahoma matchup in Dallas is the 100th anniversary in a bitter border rivalry that has Longhorns fans more interested in its ugly recent history than its glorious distant past.

                            "We owe them one," Texas senior offensive tackle Jonathan Scott said before the season started.

                            Make that several.

                            Texas (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) hasn't beaten the Sooners (2-2, 1-0) since 1999, when Major Applewhite rallied the Longhorns from an early 17-0 deficit for a 38-28 victory. It was Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops' first season in Norman and his only loss to Texas' Mack Brown.

                            The Red River Rivalry has been all-Oklahoma since.

                            In 2000, it was a 63-14 romp that catapulted a developing Sooners program toward a national title. In 2003, it was another Oklahoma rout - 65-13 - that was Texas quarterback Vince Young's baptism by fire. Oklahoma thumped Texas again last year 12-0, the first time Texas had been shut out since 1980.

                            The Sooners' five-game winning streak has embarrassed the Longhorns and frustrated Brown's quest for his first conference title as a head coach.

                            So what makes Longhorns fans think this year can be different? Chalk it up to changes on both sides of the Red River.

                            Texas entered the season ranked No. 2 coming off its Rose Bowl win over Michigan and solidified its standing as a national title favorite with a 25-22 win at Ohio State on Sept. 10.

                            Young's leadership, the emergence of freshman tailback Jamaal Charles and the dominating play of a veteran defense give this year's Texas team an aura of toughness it hasn't had in recent years.

                            And Oklahoma is struggling. The departure of key players off last year's national title-game team, the hit-and-miss play of freshman quarterback Rhett Bomar and two early losses to TCU and UCLA make the Sooners appear ripe for their first loss in Dallas in the new century.

                            Oh, and sophomore running back Adrian Peterson is banged up. He left the Sooners' 43-21 win over Kansas State on Saturday night in the second quarter with an ankle injury. Stoops said after the game that Peterson will be OK to play against Texas.

                            Bomar hasn't played in this rivalry, yet hardly sounds nervous about what he might face in a game that has created nearly as many goats as heroes of late.

                            "This team, when it comes to the Texas game, we have confidence. We have that swagger," Bomar said. "A lot of people might count us out just like that, but we're going to go down there with all...

                            Big 12 preview: No end in sight for North's woes

                            By Dennis Dodd
                            CBS Senior Writer
                            Tell Dennis your opinion!

                            The Big 12 North isn't a division, it's a kennel.

                            You know, a place where all the mutts go.

                            The division's six teams fell just short of making it into Letterman's monologue last year. Colorado was the "champion" and lost by 39 points to Oklahoma in the Big 12 title game. In inter-divisional play, the North won only three of 19 games against the loaded South. Conference officials are still determining whether those even count. All three were against Baylor.

                            Big 12
                            Predicted Finish
                            1. Colorado
                            2. Iowa State
                            3. Nebraska
                            4. Kansas State
                            5. Missouri
                            6. Kansas
                            1. Texas
                            2. Oklahoma
                            3. Texas A&M
                            4. Texas Tech
                            5. Oklahoma State
                            6. Baylor
                            Off. player of year:
                            Vince Young, Texas
                            Def. player of year:
                            Rodrique Wright, Texas
                            Coach of the year:
                            Dennis Franchione, Texas A&M
                            Once again, the conference's title game (Dec. 3 in Houston), is expected to be a formality. Texas or Oklahoma will wipe the floor with the North's Last Comic Standing.

                            It wasn't always this way. The league debuted 10 years ago with most of the power concentrated in the North. Nebraska was in the midst of winning three national championships in four years. Kansas won 10 games in 1995. Kansas State was an emerging national power. But while you were in the kitchen getting a sandwich, Big 12 North football became the island of misfit boys.

                            Actually, it took a little longer than that. In the pillow fight that was the Big 12 North race last year, all Iowa State had to do was beat floundering Missouri -- which had lost to Troy -- to win its first race of any kind since tying for the Missouri Valley in 1912. After 92 years, a tap-in right?

                            No, just another case of the yips. Missouri won in overtime, leaving the field feeling somewhat better about a 5-6 train wreck of a season in which its hothead coach needed some anger management and a new offensive coordinator. How dare media ask why Gary Pinkel's offense was able to turn Brad Smith from brilliant scrambling Heisman contender to pocket piñata?

                            Once again, all six teams in the North have a chance to win the division going into 2005. That's kind of the problem. Colorado won it last year as much as the other five didn't.

                            Gary Barnett and the Buffs are the best team in a bad Big 12 North division. (Getty Images)
                            Can the Big 12 North bounce back? The short answer is "no" which, for now, is also the long-term answer. Blame it on Tom Osborne. When T.O. hung it up in December 1997, in retrospect, that sent Nebraska and the North...

                            Ok, Division I-A is not the only college football so in that reason I am inviting people to talk about ALL football I-A through III. Feel free to talk about your alma mater or the college you currently attend (like me).

                            I'll get it started...I go to Slippery Rock University in PA (PSAC conference). We had four years with a stellar quarterback, but after he graduated, the two backups split time and needless to say it was a disappointment.

                            Our big rivals happen to be Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP), who basically manhandled us this year after four years of our own domination...
