Sports Thoughts

by Mike Organ

Mike Organ Mike Organ The Lady Eagles softball team is off to a good start. I hope they remain healthy so they can make a long run in the playoffs.

The Eagles kicked off baseball season Monday night. They have a good nucleus returning and only need to develop some solid pitching to be a top flight contender.

The Longhorns are struggling to be respectable enough to make the NCAA tourney field. I don’t see them making the grade. They will probably get in a couple of NIT games if chosen.

The Lady Horns are awful. Look for Coach G to get a real looking at as soon as the season is over. Texas does not accept mediocrity in any sport, much less one they originally took to national prominence.

The football schedules for Texas and A& M are almost complete. There are some “open dates” on both. The easy games will not prepare them for the rigors of conference play. Fans don’t like paying big ticket prices for these fluff games either.
