Theo Pinson’s Ability to Play Point Guard a Key Factor Ahead of Thursday’s NBA Draft

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.

These guys up here and the rest of them, they were so much fun to be around. And sorry we couldn't get it done." (ASAP Sports)

UNC Baseball Players Find Strength in Cook Out

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.

It's fitting, then that Pinson is the first winner of the Caulton Tudor Award, given to the Triangle basketball player most cooperative with the media. (Raleigh News & Observer)

But he’s like really a highly intelligent football player.” (NBC Sports)

Today In UNC History
June 25, 1963
On June 25, 1963, the N.C. General Assembly rushed through the Speaker Ban law. The bill prohibited speeches on state campuses by members of the Communist Party, persons advocating overthrow of the constitution and individuals who had pleaded the Fifth Amendment about related topics. The target of the ban was UNC-Chapel Hill. In many people's minds, UNC was associated with liberals, the left and Communism.

Thought for the Day
Move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. Walk in someone else's shoes or at least eat their food. Open your mind, get up off the couch, move.
