At half Texas up 1-0 at Sacramento State:

In my opinion, one thing that will help Texas fans is a rework of Meyers stadium to bring fans closer to the field. Bleachers inside the track are a good start. Combining a track and soccer stadium make for a less personal and intimate experience.

Great wins this weekend. Colorado looked slow and uninspired Friday for a top 25 team. Today's win against the Husk was awesome! They came to do us like they did TCU but we did them instead.

Great game by UT ladies. Gotta love that our own contributed to the scoring play. #3 with steal and pass, 25 with skills and pass to scorer.

Congrats ladies.

We drove in from a youth game to catch the last 25 minutes in person. We feel very honored and grateful to have watched the Horns top West Virginia! What a beautiful role model the team is for our DD! Not just this year but for many years past as well.

Time to adjust the scheme or player attitude after that stinker of a loss. I just don't think the Horns are going to win again unless they apply quicker and more sustained pressure on defense and mark up.

Whew! First time culture shock at Baylor with the prayer (which was great!), lack of a jumbotron, nothing but intimate seating et cetera. It was unnerving in a fun way to arrive a half hour early and catch the warm up up close. We felt like at any time we might be noticed by the players.


I agree with the post win official comments that Mikayla and Emily each had a great game. We particularly enjoyed it when Mikayla distance sprinted from her forward position to strip the ball from a Bear loitering on top of our defense. If I recall, our D was faithfully executing the "scheme" insofar as I have divined it this season. As have many teams lately, the Bears attacked our "scheme" very aggressively. I think the Horns have started to adjust to opponent counter scheming by becoming aggressive back, all while faithfully executing the "scheme", which is a very subtle hard thing to discern and execute. So I would say the Horns have made at least one adjustment as an extra layer on top of the "scheme". Congratulations Horns, coaches and players alike!

Good Luck Horns against Baylor! The look on your faces after the OSU game should easily be worth two points of effort on top of whatever else you score today!
