The Longhorns (21-17, 5-10 Big 12) lost 2 of 3 to West Virginia over the weekend, making the Horns 0 for 5 in Big 12 series this season. In other news, it appears that West Virginia actually fields a baseball team.

And Texas is in last place in the Big 12:

Big 12 Pct Streak Overall Pct Streak
Oklahoma 8-4 .667 L1 31-10 .756 W3
Kansas 9-6 .600 L1 24-15 .615 L1
Kansas State 7-5 .583 W1 28-13 .683 W1
Baylor 8-6 .571 L2 20-20 .500 L2
Oklahoma State 7-7 .500 L1 27-11 .711 L1
West Virginia 6-6 .500 W1 23-18 .562 W1
TCU 7-8 .467 W2 19-21 .475 W2
Texas 5-10 .333 L1 21-17 .553 L1
Texas Tech 5-10 .333 W1 18-22 .450 W1

The magic number for Texas baseball continues to be 3. When the Horns manage >3 runs - not the most herculean task in the college game - they're a 15-2 ball club - which is pretty goddamn good, and that's testament to a very strong Texas pitching staff...

...that's being completely wasted.

Terrible hitting throughout a lineup that's been recruited to "manufacture runs" through the use of Japanese Wa have managed to score 3 or less runs in 21 of 38 games. If you're a Texas pitcher, your primary support comes from your jock and your Mee Maw.

Texas will get three more opportunities this season to win a Big 12 series (Baylor, KSU, TCU).

Dare to dream.
