After we get a top 8 seed and don't get out of regionals?
Texas tops Baylor 3-1 on Senior Day. Big props for our seniors Lexy, Nadia, and Courtney!
Luna went the distance, 4 hits, 10 K, no earned runs.
ESPN Selection Show is 9pm tonight, ESPNU. I'll put up the Austin, TX Regional and corresponding Super Regional matchup, as well as update on the other Big 12 programs.
we are 42-10, RPI 5, 16-8 (T-3) in a very good conference. Only 10-8 in last 18. You think we are a lock for a top 8? Based on recent debacles, I'm not so sure.
It's going to be that RPI that helps us. Based on how the committee seeds and the extreme importance they place on RPI, we are projected on most sites to be top 8. College Sports Madness says 6 and the "experts" on Ultimate College Softball are saying 7.
If we get one, let's hope we can get to that point. The last couple years have been an absolute joke. Beaten by teams with players who probably couldn't even make the UT roster.
No surprise of the #1 seed. Cal is a freaking beast
OU is 4
Aggy is 8.
Way to represent Big 12

#6 overall seed. Nice. Now show us something to justify it.
So if the seeds hold, we would host the Ducks
Can't say I'm not upset by that. Think we got a good matchup.
Now it's all up to whose coming to Austin
I can see Tech possibly taking the Washington regional. Washington has just been awful
UMass and Missouri would be awesome. Plourde is a great pitcher. She can go toe-to-toe with Chelsea Thomas.
LSU's pitching against A&M's hitting is huge. Mack and Fico are really good.
Would pencil in a Tennessee-Georgia rematch easily. A lot of conference super matchups (Cal/Wash, A&M/Mizzou, Tenn/UGA)
That L'ville regional has 3 teams that could easily advance.
GTech-Bama is good. But Bama-L'ville would be one of the most exciting SR matchups

Caira out of 'Cuse is gonna be fun to watch against that Sun Devil offense.
Had a feeling Baylor would get shipped out to Lafayette but no one in that regional has the horses to go with ULL. Beasts.
Oregon-Portland State and Mississippi State-BYU. Could be interesting.
Auburn-UH and Texas-Northwestern.
As soon as I saw Texas State go to College Station, knew it meant Houston was coming to us.
Opening thoughts: we got a gift.

Wow, we play a 27-27 team first. Auburn 33-21 and UH 34-22. I mean, there is NO excuse.
Auburn Tigers 33-21
-Key Wins: Georgia Tech, Syracuse, Georgia (1 win), LSU (1 win)
-Team ERA: 1.93
-Team BA: .244
Houston Cougars 34-22
-Key Wins: TAMU (1), Tulsa (1)
-Team ERA: 2.76
-Team BA: .312
Northwestern Wildcats 27-27
-Key Wins: Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Missouri, UMass,
-Team ERA: 3.99

Houston beat us last year in the regional so this is a great opportunity to exercise those demons.
Thought part one of exercising those demons was the shellacking with put on them in Houston...2 grand slams??
Game against Northwestern is 4pm Friday on LHN

4:30, right? Baseball vs Baylor at 6:30, also on LHN. The graphic said softball was 5:30 ET.

Texas Softball tweeted 4pm
And of course, we are up for grabs. Typical
After the last couple years, that doesn't upset me. We have a ton to prove.
Yes we do. Say what they want, but we did get a gifted regional. If we can't get out of here, just take Clark out back and shoot her.
And yes, 4:30. Good to know our SID was wrong
nadiataylor88 "supposedly the Austin regional is up for grabs" Oh we will Show you better than we can tell you #weallwegot #TexasFight #TEXASSOFTBALL
UH SID is tweeting that their game on Friday (7pm) will be streamed online. Wish CP/LHN would throw us a bone and also stream ours too, but no chance
UT games will be locked out to 98% of people. Televised by LHN. We have to get to the supers before anyone can see on TV.
And now the tough question, and something Clark has clearly struggled with this season...how to line up the pitching for the regional.
I think you can throw Fox on Friday and then start Luna for the game on Saturday.
Potentially going up against Auburn, I want Luna taking on the #2 seed
I want a rested Luna in the right mind-set taking on the #2 seed
I need the Saturday game times - trying to plan softball and baseball attendance.
For sure they will be up by tomorrow, the Texas Softball SID is SLOW when it comes to posting game notes, summaries, etc on the website
Thank you Auburn

Texas Sports is reporting the 4/7 Friday, 12/3/6 Sat and 12 Sunday times
Yep, I'll be cutting out of work a little early on Friday. I'm not sure how that will work on Saturday. LHN has baseball vs. Baylor at 1. You'd think LHN would show every UT game in the regional, and their second one SHOULD be at noon on Saturday. Is there an LHN2? LMAO
Wow going back to how important RPI is, Louisville has the best season record in the tournament (53-3) but they are only the #15 seed. UCLA has a (36-18) record, and they are the #12 seed...
I saw a post elsewhere that said it is a joke that Northwestern made it and Iowa didn't.
@js - Nice photo above. Is that from a tweet ?
Not sure this is a favorable regional. Auburn will be tough. Under 2.00 ERA with 2 left-handed pitchers which historically we have struggled (Ricketts, Canion). Not like a baseball left/right matchup. Ball breaks away from our power right- handed hitters and jams our slap-hitting lefties. Wish we had a lefty to throw BP this week.
