    So pretty much no matter how you slice it, we are playing Missouri and facing Aaron Crow Game 1. Not exactly the best postseason situation for the Horns. I hope we can build some momentum against A&M and in the Big 12 Tournament, but the round 1 matchup doesn't look good.

    Now I know we scored 9 runs off Crow in 5 innings, but if you take away that one start, he is 10-0 with a 1.96 ERA and 99 K's in 78 innings and is probably one of the top five picks in the draft. Could be a great pitching matchup with Crow and the lately hot Kasparek.

    If we can take 2/3 from A&M and beat Missouri (with Crow on the mound) game one, might be the momentum push this team is looking for. My guess is we win 1/3 against A&M and lose game one in the tourney to Missouri and end up a 3-seed somewhere for regionals.

    I doubt that Crow will start the first game of the Big XII Tournament for Mizzou. Jamieson has rarely done that and his team won't feel like it has to win in OKC. My guess is that it'll be Ian Berger who the Horns had success against. Jamieson will probably hold Crow back for the second or third game.

    Exactly. I see Crow starting vs A&M, since that will technically be the bigger matchup for them.

    Crow has not been pitching very well since the start against Texas. I don't know if he just got fouled up mentally or if he's hurting because of the line drive he took of his arm in that game but in his 4 starts since that game, he has an ERA of 5.88.
