The Road to Omaha is laid out for the Heels, so we talked about it.

NCAA Baseball: College World Series-North Carolina vs Oregon State Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

In the depths of the simultaneous offseasons for the primary revenue college sports, there lies perhaps the most exciting NCAA Tournament of them all— the race to the College World Series*.

*- Don’t believe me? Turn on the ESPN at-bat station (probably on ESPNU) on Friday and through the weekend. Thank me later.

As such, the folks at Tar Heel Blog had to preview it. Joining host Chad Floyd is staff writer Jake Lawrence, whose piece breaking down the Chapel Hill Regional drops later today.

We discuss:

  • Strategies for navigating the quick four-team double-elimination tournament, from a pitching perspective;
  • Mike Fox’s recent embrace of the Sabermetric revolution;
  • The depth of the UNC offense, including Aaron Sabato and Michael Busch;
  • Tennessee’s difficult yet impressive run through the SEC;
  • Chad’s struggles to find stats on Liberty;
  • ...and UNCW!
