The Comeback Begins....

"For by grace are ye saved through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God,"
Ephesians 2:8

Pop quiz hotshot: What if we were to tell you that there's something new coming out of the University of Texas and it's utterly, totally, completely, and unambiguously good?!?

We're talking, obviously, about the baseball team.

For those who aren't aware, the Longhorn baseball team just won their conference. With today's victory over TCU, combined with Oklahoma State's EPIC CHOKE against Tech, the Longhorns finished the regular season with the best record in Big 12 play. It was a long time in coming.

There's a lot we could say. There's a lot we probably will say. But the short version is that the 2018 Longhorn baseball team is the most interesting thing the athletic department has done since Colt McCoy graduated.

We know we're living on borrowed time until the UT Politburo figures out that the blogger "Cahnman" and the Longhorn Network Character "Heavy Metal David Ash" are the same person.  But before that day comes, there's something we need to say: For the first time in ages, we're happy.  The University has done something very, very, very right and we commend them for doing so.

Don't get us wrong: The University's most politically embarrassing days remain in front of it.  But the seeds of righteousness we started planting five years ago are beginning to bear fruit.  And we have a conference championship in baseball as proof.

Bottom Line: The University of Texas remains one of the most valuable brand names in the world.  Their athletic department just had its most significant accomplishment since Colt McCoy graduated.   And there's more coming....
