This week, McDonald thought he was better than us and left us to go to Georgia for some unknown reason. LaBarre fills in and besides struggling to come up with an intro topic and answer the question “What did we learn,” he fared admirably. In fact, he brought so much sports knowledge, we didn’t even need a food intro topic.
First, we discuss how fall baseball is going as we’re in the middle of the Red & Black series. Somehow, Josh Jung is getting better. This team may be loaded on offense this season and could be really fun to watch. There are a TON of new names to familiarize yourself with before February.
The Tech basketball season tipped off tonight and absolutely laid waste to UIW 87-37 behind a 48-7 second half. Mooney is still coming into himself as an offensive threat, although he scored 12 points tonight. Tariq Owens flexed his defensive muscles and led the team with 6 blocks, 3 in one possession. Next game will be Friday against Mississippi Valley State.
We preview the Longhorns and discuss how the stats are in agreement this week that Tech is probably the better team. We both think the game will be a close one, a little lower scoring, but LaBarre sees Texas getting the advantage over Duffey behind center.
