Tech Tech Red Raiders are the highest ranked of the 3 teams in pre-season. They are the last Out-Of-Conference team we play this season. It's a mid-week series on Tuesday and Wednesday. They look really tough again this year. They finished tied for 1st in the Big12 last season with TCU and ended with a #7 RPI.

Texas A&M Aggies are pre-season picked 2nd in the SEC West behind the Hogs. They are the next to last SEC conference series for us this year. They are picked anywhere from 9th to 33rd in the national polls. The Aggies are quickly becoming one of my most easiest teams to want to beat in any SEC sports.

Texas Longhorns. There is a reason this  ::hornsdown:: is available on Hogville. They finished 6th in the Big12 last season , but should be better this year. They are our last OOC series before we start SEC play. National polls have them from 14th to 26th.

For me, it was a close pick between the Aggies and the Longhorns. The Aggies are quickly closing the gap of being my least liked team from Texas.

I picked the Longhorns as the team I most want to beat, but just barely over the Aggies from the SEC.

Aggies for the conference implications alone.

I'll take 5-2 right now, if it includes a sweep of the aggies...

Beating the Aggies is most important because it is a conference game but I want us to win all 3 equally.

obviously I want all three!  but i want the aggies more of the three because they are in our conference.  Most of us detest UT with a purple passion and taking them down would be the sweetest in one way, but it wouldnt count as much in real terms as taking down the aggies.

Let’s just beat them all. The Longhorns have been better historically, so beating them might gain brownie points from wherever.

For what its worth, baseball people are usually smarter than that (unlike say, football). 

I think Tceh and A&M have been to multiple CWS since texas.  I think the people who matter - voters and selection committee - will be aware.

Yeah we had some real geniuses in charge of college baseball when they totally took offense out of the game for those few years.

I picked Tech.....just because it's a huge non con win against a CWS type team. We will see where we stack up.

I have always hated Texas. The whole state. I would visit, but would never live there. That said, beat them all, especially ..... just beat them all.

like someone said earlier, I think 5-2 w/sweep of TAM would be about as good as you could do but more importantly it would put a lock on the post season hosting(assuming conference goes well).

Texas A&M because those games matter in the conference standings and they also matter for us to win an SEC Championship.

The other 2 teams don't mean as much.
