College Baseball World Series: Will the CWS Title Finally Land in Chapel Hill?

James PageContributor IJune 9, 2008

With the CWS and the sweet smell of World Series excitement just a week away, many in Chapel Hill are trotting through the streets with something to smile about. 

Or do they?

Not being able to get the job done in the two previous CWS Title games, the Heels are hungry for the gold and not just an on field agonizing view of the Beavers hoisting the trophy, AGAIN.

With the strength of the pitching staff and the bats of Fedroff and others, the Heels are a heavy favorite to win it this year. And with the Beavers out of sight, why not?

With Coach Mike Fox flawlessly herding his heels through the Regionals, as well as the entire season itself, many wonder what can stop the Tar Heels this year.

The Tar Heels will open up against the Baton Rouge Regional Champion and its host, the powerful LSU Tigers, on June 15th at 7pm on ESPN 2.

LSU had a 20+ game win streak this season, which was snapped in regional play, and is loaded with speed and power behind and in front of the dish.
