UNC takes on East Carolina this weekend in the NCAA Super Regional in hopes of earning a fourth straight trip to the College World Series. Game 1 is at noon on Saturday, followed by Game 2 Sunday at noon and Game 3(if necessary) on Monday at 1 PM. ESPNU will broadcast Game 1 with the rest appearing on ESPN. Alex White will start Game 1 with Adam Warren getting the nod on Sunday.
Tar Heel Blue has all the information you will ever need and Jim Young at ACC Sports has a preview of UNC-ECU as well as Clemson-Arizona St. The ACC has four teams in the Super Regional and would love to fill up half the bracket in Omaha.
Jon Manuel of Baseball America was on 850 the Buzz this week and said the window for a Tar Heel title in baseball may be closing for a season or two. UNC stands to deal with some major attrition after this season, including Dustin Ackley who Manuel said might be the best player in UNC history. The question for this team is whether the pitching can hold up. If the offense shows up like it did last weekend, that question may not matter.
