On your mark

Just one week after participating in the
NCAA Indoor Track and Field National
Championships in Arkansas, the team began
the outdoor portion of its schedule by
hosting the second annual Horned Frog Invitational
March 21.

The Frogs posted 10 NCAA regional qualifying
marks during the event, which featured
competitors from UT-Arlington and
the University of North Texas.

Horned Frogs sports hold best memories

This is why the phrase bittersweet was created.

When I was first asked to write a column about sports for the graduation issue, I thought about declining because that would mean my time here is officially over.

This has been the best five years of my life and I am going to miss this school with all of my heart.

So much has changed since I started here in the fall of 2004.

Fantasy Baseball: Don’t ditch slumping players just yet

One of the best things about baseball is that it is a long season.

If you go 0-4 one day, you get the chance to come back out tomorrow and get another crack at it. So basically what I'm saying is don't freak out just yet and start blowing up your roster.

I have seen leagues where studs like Reds' second baseman Brandon Phillips and Brewers' outfielder Ryan Braun are getting cut. Don't be that dumb. Hang on to your best players because despite their slow start, these guys will still put up monster numbers as the season goes on.

Dueling columns: 2009 season

Talented team posed to surpass 2008 season, reach BCS bowl

It's always football season in Texas.

Once the regular season ends, bowl season begins. Once bowl season ends the spring season begins. Once the spring season ends it's summer and you would think there is no football going on, but the players are constantly working out. Then two-a-days begin and the whole cycle continues.

Fantasy Baseball: Give slumping players time to recuperate

The baseball season is finally here and with that fantasy baseball season has finally started.

After weeks of drafting, looking at projections and making speculations, you now have the chance to see your hard work pay off on the virtual field.

I was fairly successful in my first week with my teams, but there is always room to bolster your lineup. Be sure to check the waiver wire for some potential steals. Here are a couple that could be available in your leagues:

Dueling columns: Baseball’s place in America

Baseball intrinsic to American life

I want you to close your eyes and think about America.

What comes to your mind? Maybe the Statue of Liberty, apple pie or frozen burritos.

Only one thing comes to my mind. Baseball.

The numbers show that our nation's pastime is becoming about as popular as Savage Garden, but I still would rather watch a baseball game than do anything else.

Dueling columns: Tiger Woods’ prospects at Masters

Golf's superstar will succeed in bid for fifth green jacket

The greatest athlete of our generation will take to the course today at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia. And make no doubt about it, Tiger Woods is going to win the 73rd Masters Tournament this weekend.

Tiger's battle back from major knee surgery has been well documented. He returned to golf amongst unprecedented fanfare Feb. 26 at the Accenture Match Play Championship in Arizona. His bid for a triumphant, victorious return fell short that weekend as he fell in the second round of match play.

Fantasy Baseball: Closers can help push your team over the hump

This is the longest week ever.Longer than the week before Christmas, your birthday or Easter if you have been good this Lent.It's the final...

Baseball team falls apart late

You know you have a pretty good ball club when an MLB Hall of Famer says so, but the Horned Frogs still couldn't manage to top Tony Gwynn's San Diego State University team in a weekend series at Lupton Stadium, dropping two of three games.

A loss on Friday and a win on Saturday set the stage for a series-clinching finale Sunday.

With one out in the top of the ninth, it seemed like the Horned Frogs were going to take the series against SDSU with a 1-0 win. But three hits and two errors later they were suddenly behind.

Horned Frogs fail to hold lead in final inning

With one out in the top of the ninth, it seemed like the Horned Frogs were going to escape the rubber match against the San Diego State Aztecs with a 1-0 win. But three hits and two errors later they were suddenly behind.

The Aztecs were able to turn those this and miscues into two runs and earn a 2-1 victory Sunday at Lupton Stadium.

"It's tough for us right now to put a complete game together," head coach Jim Schlossnagle said. "We're finding ways to lose games. We've lost a lot of games like that this year."
