Chansky’s Notebook: An Old Nemesis Roars Back

Mike Fox should lobby for baseball to be seven innings. Because eight has not been a good number for his Tar Heels in the College World Series — and for long before that. In his eighth trip to Omaha as a player and coach for Carolina, Fox’s team was sent home by eighth innings. If it wasn’t for Oregon State, the Tar Heels could have been playing for their third NCAA title. (Chapelboro.com)

UNC Baseball’s New Foundation

Of all seven teams that Mike Fox has brought to the College World Series in Omaha, this one most bore a resemblance to the very first squad in 2006, not in terms of talent, but in its youth and novelty of this grand event. When Kyle Datres drove a 2-1 pitch over the left field wall and just inside the foul pole, there was an unbridled joy on display in the Tar Heels’ celebration. (Inside Carolina)

Mike Fox, UNC Players Post-Oregon State Press Conference Quotes

Mike Fox: "Well, the end of the season, it stinks. It's especially hard when you have such a great group of kids.

During UNC’s game against Mississippi State in the College World Series, ESPN revealed that Michael Busch and Kyle Datres have a routine of visiting Cook Out every Monday.
