Greg Swindell and Keith Moreland sign off for the Longhorn Network' final live sporting event

When the Texas Longhorns baseball team beat the Kansas Jayhawks 9-7 on Saturday, it marked the end of the regular season for Texas, giving the squad a 35-20 finish.

It also marked the final event to ever air on the Longhorn Network.

With Texas just weeks away from its July 1 move from the Big 12 to the SEC, the Longhorn Network will no longer exist due to the SEC’s media rights deal and the already-existing SEC Network

Greg Swindell and Keith Moreland, Texas’ baseball announcers, and former Longhorns, took the time to thank their crew, share memories, and bid farewell to the Longhorn Network following Saturday’s game.

“Well, folks. We’ve got a lot of things that we’d like to talk about. First and foremost, I’d like to thank my partner. It’s been a heck of a run and we’ve had a blast doing this,” Moreland said to begin his postgame comments. “All of the crew. Everybody, they’re so nice. They go out of their way to make sure we’re comfortable and we’re ready to work. It’s been an honor, my friend.”

“I personally want to thank you,” Swindell said to Moreland before getting emotional and needing a couple of seconds to regain his composure. “Eight years together, I’ve learned a lot about the game. You’re a joy, you’re a pleasure, you’re a friend. I love you,” he continued.

The duo then thanked the fans before a slideshow of some of the broadcast’s crew members throughout the years as both reminisced.

Originally launched in 2011, the Longhorn Network was the first of its kind: a 24-hour channel dedicated to the coverage of just one university.
