Texas hosts San Diego

The Texas Longhorns will begin the season tomorrow in Round Rock TX against the San Diego Toreros. San Diego swept a series from Cal Poly to jump out to a 3-0 record in the early season. Guest Contributor Donald J. Boyles was nice enough to write a nine page preview on the Longhorns season which is linked below. I have also linked both schools game notes.

Jacks open with Texas Tech

The Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks are opening the season this weekend with the Red Raiders of Texas Tech. The Lumberjacks are entering the second season since they restarted the program. The program was dormant for 11 years but came back with 15 wins in the first season. Texas Tech is coming off a 31-26-1 season in 2006. They return a fab four of sophomores in Roger Kieschnick, Miles Morgan, Willie Rueda, and James Leverton. All four should be key players for the Red Raiders to improve on their season in 2007.

UPDATE: They have postponed Game 1 of the series until Saturday and Game 2 will take place on Sunday. Game 3 has been canceled. Full release here.
