TCU is not 14-5 at home this season. 15-7 after this weekend. 8-10 on the road. 8-12 against Q1 opponents including 0-5 against out-of-conference Q1 opponents. Almost zero chance that any of our remaining regular season opponents approach Q1 so only movement will be prior opponents moving in and out of Q1. UTSA is on the margin but if they get back into Q1 we’d go to 8-13 and 0-6.

Not a very good resume. It is hard to comprehend how a team that went 3-0 vs TT and 2-1 vs OSU plays so bad against other lower ranked teams. Plus, given we are at the bottom of Big 12 hitting, how did we ever play so well vs TT and OSU? I bet this drives KS crazy.

Will be interesting for me tonight. Got one of the dudes that played for my collegiate summer league team last year that will play 1B for UIW tonight. (Nix Brannan) Gonna be the first time I’ll be able to say that in person. (Miggy Santos at DBU played w us too but I had to miss that Tuesday game)

I mean I've got TCU as #6 in the conference in OPS and #5 in WHIP. Our fielding is #3. Texas is the one that makes no sense... #1 in OPS, #1 in fielding, #2 in WHIP
