    We are hosting SEC Softball Tourney in like 2032 or 2033. I think it's safe to say we have a new softball facility by then.

    I have not seen any commitment to the women’s program or statement by CDC to even assume Texas will improve or upgrade our Softball stadium by then.

    Neither have I. I'm just hoping with the quality facilities in the SEC and Davis Diamond right up the road, hosting the touney in '32 or '33 will bring a very bright spotlight on Texas Softball.

    My SEC friends tell me McCombs is simply not good enough. But the University boxed in the facility with those graduate dorms. Otherwise, this could have been a major renovation.

    I think I'll ask CDC he's have a town hall meeting Feb 13th, Hogg Auditorium. Free for all.

    Does this mean a Texas Death Match at the Hogg?

    Nope, pretty much old people like me and a handful of rich donors CDC has to keep sucking up to. The last time I asked about a new softball stadium, he said he had to get that indoor football practice facility up and going first, and then there was a secondary item after that. Maybe something related to track and field. In other words, softball was not on his radar. And now, we need to get beach volleyball courts built!

    I want this for our program so bad. There are some pretty nice ones in the SEC. I think our attendance is really about to take off.

    This is where I ask two questions:
    1. I guess you can't contribute to the Texas ONE fund and make it counts towards Loyalty Points as if we contributed to the Longhorn Foundation

    2. Texas is entering the SEC which is a serious softball conference. I know you can't build a new stadium, but could you upgrade the current one like putting in seats to replace the bleachers?
