It’s not easy to ruin the fun of a team winning a share of a championship, but WVU baseball may have done just that.

The Mountaineers entered the 2023 season as a team most were predicting would finish near the bottom of the Big 12, but managed to earn the right to be called co-regular season conference champions. WVU posted a 39-15 overall record and even  became a top ten ranked team nationally for a moment.

But just when it appeared as if WVU was a lock to host a regional, Randy Mazey’s team collapsed at the worst possible time. West Virginia fell victim of a sweep at the hands of Texas to lose what could’ve been a championship all to themselves. The Mountaineers then followed that up with a quick exit in the Big 12 Tournament, losing to Texas Tech and Oklahoma State in their first two games of the double elimination format.

All while Mazey and star player JJ Wetherholt were recognized as Big coach and player of the year.

Two things are now true about the 2023 WVU baseball season. It’s one of the best in program history and does factually go down as one that did win a trophy. However, it’s also one that fans may now view as another example of a WVU team choking just as they got close to achieving bigger prizes.

    The season is not over. The Big 12 Tournament is not the trophy you want. They got a share of the Big 12 season title. If they bow out of the NCAA weakly like they have the last 5 games, then you can legitimately be disappointed. But there is still plenty to play for. They have to pull out of this slump and play like they did two weeks ago, and forget how they played this last week. If by some miracle they advance to a super regional, this past week will be forgotten.
