Friday Pregame: Texas

April 16th, 2010

Greetings from UFCU Disch-Falk Field in Austin…a big game for a host of reasons tonight for the Aggies.

It’s been a tough stretch for the team the last few weeks. This team, however, has kept its head high and continues to believe in its approach. The Aggies feel they will break out soon, and I feel the same–you never want to be struggling, but it happens to virtually every team at some point in a 56-game season.

On paper, this weekend’s series with third-ranked Texas should be a tremendously well-pitched affair. Tonight’s opener, which will have Barret Loux going against Taylor Jungmann, has all the makings of a classic Friday night battle. It should be a great one and I’m looking forward to it.
