It’s been a tough seven days for the Texas baseball team.
The Longhorns began the year 12-1, skyrocketing to the No. 1 ranking in the college baseball polls. The team looked destined for Omaha after taking down SEC powerhouses Alabama, LSU, and Tennessee.
Since then, though, they’ve been in a slump.
That started last Wednesday with a 6-4 loss to mid major Texas State. The Bobcats celebrated aptly, with closing pitcher Tristan Stivors flashing a vicious ‘Horns Down’ to put the exclamation mark on a huge win.
The string of bad luck continued with a trip to South Carolina over the weekend. The Gamecocks, who’d limped in off of a sweep at the hands of archrival Clemson, took two of three games over the top ranked team in the nation. The series win ended a five-game losing skid for Carolina.
The Longhorns continue their tour of the Palmetto State this week with matchups set versus College of Charleston and The Citadel.
Unfortunately, the luck hasn’t changed.
The Charleston baseball team whipped the Horns last night to a tune of 8-4 and the Cougars were quick to celebrate.
DOWN GOES TEXAS AGAIN. 👀

The whole team rushed the diamond, with a number of players flashing that same ‘Horns Down’ sign we saw from Texas State.
The Longhorns will try to end their current three-game skid with one final game in Charleston. If they drop another contest, another celebration could ensue.
