U Of Texas, Can They Win All Three Majors?

Sat Mar 18, 2006 3:12 am

Men's 2005 Football Champions (41-38 over USC)
Men's 2005 Baseball Champions (2-0 over UF)

Will the UT men go far in the NCAA Basketball tournament?

Let me know what you think!

Hook em!

It would be nice, wouldn't it? I don't think it's gonna happen though. Duke will probably pound them in the ass again in the Elite 8 although I don't think it'll be as bad as their first encounter this season.

Since baseball was last year, it can't be all three in one school year. I doubt Texas will make it to the final four,

, its been a down year for Big 12 hoops along with the Pac-10.

Uh... both Texas and Texas A&M (both in Big 12) have had extremely good seasons. A&M just beat Syracuse in the NCAA tournament and has a 22-8 record. I would say that it has been an extremely good year for both. Now the Pac-10 indeed has had a down year. But again, the Big 12 and Pac-10 aren't known for their basketball. They are know for their football!

Texas A&M started out 10-0 by beating up on the likes of Southern, Mississippi Valley( Jerry Rice majored in Auto Mech here), Tulane (the school with no campus), North Texas, Grambling, Savannah St (have they won a game yet) Texas Southern, and then they staggered to the finish line with a 11-8 finish with two of those over Baylor (couldn't start on time because were in trouble with the law). Couldn't beat Pacific, lost to both Kansas schools, Record wise a fine year,if they didn't beat Texas in that one game they would have been NIT bound but then again A&M is known for football. I

Since A&M and LSU are 29-29 at the half, I might have to eat some crow.

heck yes it is in one year, This is still the 2005 season . Baseball-2005 season champs are the longhorns, football- 2005 season champs are longhorns, and Basketball would make it a three in a year champs run.

This is the 2005-06 basketball season. The majority of the season is disputed in 2006 though, so calling it the 2005 season would be wrong IMO.

Don't think the Horns are deep enough to make a run into the Final Four - I see them going out to Duke next Saturday/Sunday.

As for the season, I go by the school year, not to mention that all the championship games of the school year are in the same year - Football is the first week of January, basketball in March and Baseball in June. Still, I don't see the Horns taking the basketball or baseball (it's the ACC's year this year - league is ultra-competitive) crowns.

Go Mountaineers and Geaux Tigers! I really hope its not a Duke-Texas matchup in the Elite 8, that's a lose-lose situation for me as a strong hater of both programs (but on the plus side, one will be done!)

I'm calling BS on that...Texas was #2 in the preseason poll (http://www.statesman.com/horns/content/sports/stories/longhorns/11/8top25.html)and I dont think they ever really dropped out of the top 10 during the season...if the equivalent expectation with a season like that is to not even make it to the sweet 16, then things must be in a sorry state in Austin....

Texas got owned, plain and simple. You can't make excuses for that performance. Props to LSU, they outplayed and outhustled the Horns all the way. Their stifling D choked Texas just like it choked Duke.

I meant Texas got owned by LSU. They lost by 10 and they only took it to OT because LSU looked like monkeys screwing a football trying to secure that ball before UT hit a 3-pointer to tie it. They left the LSU shooter wide open for that 3 at the end and the guy didn't hit because it wasn't meant to be, but I didn't see anyone guarding him, Then LSU goes to score 15 points in OT to UT's 5.
It doesn't matter they had a 30-win season, that means jack in March. Ask Duke about how much their #1 ranking mattered this past Thursday.

The worst you guys dropped to in either poll was 16th for 3 weeks right around the end of non-conference/start of conference play, other than those 3 weeks you guys were in the top 10 for the rest of the season, which is pretty damn impressive!
