Memo to UT baseball fans: Step back from the ledge.

I wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend.  Lyrics to a song, yes; but they convey a plethora of meaning in relation to Texas athletics this season as well.  We had our National...

Keith Moreland to have his number retired tonight at the Baylor Game

2

Congrats to Keith Moreland, one of the best hitters to play at Texas, as his # 3 Texas jersey gets retired tonight. A 3-time All American, and multi-sport athlete, Keith Moreland was one of the all time greats to come through Austin on his way to the majors. Keith will join Hooton, Swindell, Clemens, Bryant and Kieschnick as the only players to have their number retired at The Dish. Cameron Rupp, who was paying tribute to Moreland by wearing #3, will continue to wear the jersey until the end of the season.

Holmgren: McCoy will not play in 2010

8

This is probably part coach speak and part protection of Colt McCoy. As much as I'd love to see Colt play this year, I think him learning from a seasoned veteran in Delhomme and from a coach who has taught Montana, Young and Favre a thing or two in Holmgren, will be good for Colt in the long run.

I guess no grey-shirt after all. Good for him. Scholarships are much cheaper than having to pay for a Texas Education. Best of luck to Brewer, except for the week we play Tech. And for those of you who really want a good laugh to start your Sunday, feel free to check out DTN' take on how they stole him away from us. Enjoy.

Chance Ruffin will be the closer and Cole Green will be in the bullpen and possibly a Mid-week starter on some occasions. Um...Wow. Dicharry really must have showed Augie alot during the offseason. Good to know we have the luxury of excellent pitching across the board without ANY question marks.

Truly amazing film of Spring Westfield's DT, Desmond Jackson, who recently gave his verbal commitment to Texas a couple days ago. Keep in mind, this kid was just 2 months removed from his sophomore year in High School when this was filmed. I'm not a guy who likes to project attributes towards folks who haven't earned them, but if you look carefully, you can see glimpses of Suh in this kid.
