College Baseball Preview Capsules: #17 North Carolina

Last season was never going to be easy for North Carolina. After a trip to Omaha, the draft sliced UNC’s lineup in half and pilfered two-thirds of its weekend rotation. Still, head coach Mike Fox managed to navigate his young Tar Heels to a regional. And with the overwhelming majority of that group back this year, UNC will surely take a step forward this season...right? (Baseball America)

UNC's farthest road game is at Pittsburgh followed by Atlanta, then Blacksburg. UNC won't leave the state of North Carolina until October 3rd and play every game within a 500 miles radius of Chapel Hill. Unlike the past two seasons, there is just one bye week in 2015.

Titus’s Top 12: UNC a more athletic, more uptempo, less bulky version of Arizona

Marcus Paige is back to playing like an All-American. Kennedy Meeks has been great all year. J.P. Tokoto has expanded his game so much that calling him a mere “dunker” is a huge slap in the face. Brice Johnson is one of the most underrated players in college basketball. And Justin Jackson is the best freshman in the nation who never gets mentioned in “best freshmen” discussions. (Grantland)
