After an underwhelming 0-3 start to the season courtesy of San Diego, defending national champs Texas are on the verge of having taken 3 out of their subsequent 4 games ; the Longhorns are currently leading UTSA, 5-0 at Disch-Falk Field through 7 1/2.

UT starter Austin Wood looked sharp in 4 scoreless innings of work, striking out 3 and walking none.

Kenn Kasparek (above) has retired all 6 hitters he faced in the 7th and 8th innings.

0-4 St. Edwards (Div. II) are currently facing Texas A&M Kingsville ; your somewhat drowsy correspondent braved heavy winds and a very impatient labrador to attend the Hilltoppers’ 6 error fiasco against Central Arkansas this past Sunday afternoon. 10 unearned runs, a 13-5 final, and way too many people wearing purple.

On the bright side, the makeshift tannoy, supplied by the local Radio Hut, has never sounded more crackly and bass-free. Sans any low end whatsoever, P.O.D. have all sorts of nuances I’d not previously noted.

Correction : I’ve just been told that wasn’t P.O.D., it was a fire drill.
