  • 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.

                            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...

                            Schnellenberger building a fourth power in Florida
                            by DJRamFan
                            Sept. 23, 2004
                            By Dennis Dodd
                   Senior Writer

                            Why not flip a coin to pick a starting quarterback?

                            Howard Schnellenberger had done wackier things in his career. Twenty years ago it seemed like he was throwing that career away. Miami had won the national championship in 1983 and Schnellenberger, the celebrated architect of Hurricanes football, bolted -- try not to laugh -- to the USFL.

                            Needless to say, that didn't work out. There was an inspiring stop at Louisville and a disappointing one at Oklahoma but, really, his career arc was never the same again.

                            "In my opinion, he might have as many championships as anybody, ever (if he stayed at Miami)," Florida State coach Bobby Bowden said. "It's crossed my mind many times."

                            So why not flip that coin three years ago? How is that more outrageous than creating a football program at an unknown campus in Boca Raton, Fla.? A place where the burrowing owls on campus were the inspiration for the school's nickname?

                            Or agreeing to go door-to-door soliciting community leaders for the mere $15 million needed to go from germ of an idea to kickoff?

                            Really, it wasn't weird at all for the 70-year old who, well, let's just say he still has extreme confidence in his abilities. So, yeah, it really was Schnellenberger who suggested in 2001 that freshman quarterbacks Jared Allen and Garrett Jahn flip a coin to start the first game in Florida Atlantic's history.

                            "They were too close for a human being to call so God called it," Schnellenberger said this week, considering his latest construction project. "Certainly I would do that. Why wouldn't I?"

                            Ridiculous is sublime again in Schnellenberger's world. Amid this season's talking points -- hurricanes, instant replay, kickers who can't kick -- is the job Schnellie has done at that owl-laden commuter campus of 13,000 students in Palm Beach County.

                            Three victories, all on the road, all against I-A competition in Florida Atlantic's final season before joining the big time, which in this case is the Sun Belt Conference in 2005. Next year, this college football IPO will be eligible for -- please stifle your laughter again -- a bowl.

                            All of it after playing organized college football for all of four years. All of it according to plan.

                            "He was basically semi-retired in Miami selling municipal bonds," said Dr. Anthony Catanese, the man who hired Schnellenberger at Florida Atlantic in 1998. "I said, 'That's not the place for Howard Schnellenberger.'

                            "He told me in five years he'd have this program nationally recognized. He did it in three."

                            Almost all of it has been done with kids from the state of Florida who couldn't go to one of the Big Three -- Miami, Florida or Florida State....

                            by txramsfan
                            It's all over the airways here in Austin that the PAC 10 will invite Colorado, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas Tech and Texas A&M to join their conference. They would then move Arizona and Arizona State in with these teams to form two divisions.

                            Great for football, basketball and baseball.....expensive for golf, tennis, track, swimming etc. Personally, I'm all for this.
