    I think you meant to quote a Chapel Hill legend, James Taylor by way of Carol King:

    "Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall....baby all you have to do is call"...And UNC will be there, Yeah yeah yeah....competing for Championships.

    North Carolina State

    No recruiting class made more of a splash this year than N.C. State's, as first-team All-America lefthander Carlos Rodon, blazing third baseman Trea Turner, center fielder Jake Fincher and switch-hitting catcher/outfielder Brett Austin all became impact regulars. The 'Pack lost just two drafted players off this year's super regional teamâ�ï&iques
    t;½leading home run hitter Ryan Mathews and shortstop Chris Diaz, though it will also miss graduating captain Andrew Ciencin. Outfielder Brett Williams, who hit .286/.368/.445 with six homers in 2011, should return as a fifth-year senior after missing 2012 with a knee injury. Turner should slide seamlessly to short, while Austin should tap into more of his significant raw power and become a centerpiece of the lineup. Leading hitter Danny Canela also returns to keep Austin from having to shoulder the catching burden on his own. Outfielder Tarran Senay, second baseman Matt Bergquist and righties Ethan Ogburn, Chris Overman and Ryan Wilkins join Canela in what should be a strong senior class. Rodon returns as the cornerstone of the pitching staff, and the power-armed duo of Logan Jernigan and Anthony Tzamtzis also figures to improve. The recruiting class is heavy on pitching, giving the Wolfpack plenty of choices for the rotation and depth in the bullpen. In short, N.C. State will be loaded, and should have every piece in place to reach Omaha for the first time since 1968.

    poor dook.

    Basketball, baseball, same difference, right?

    Never an offseason at the flagship! Fall, winter, and spring the Heels are competing for (and winning) championships.

    Where was your basketball team ranked in the preseason?

    daggumit, I thougt you were talking about our baseball team. Go Tar Heels!

    North Carolina

    Like Arkansas, the Tar Heels will be led by a pair of the nation's top rising juniors: third baseman Colin Moran and ace lefty Kent Emanuel. Benton Moss was stellar as a freshman and could be even better as a sophomore, and Hobbs Johnson (7-1, 1.56) also returns to one of the nation's top pitching staffs. UNC will have more arms than it knows what to do withâ�ï&iques
    t;½it was already loaded with power-armed underclassmen such as Chris McCue, Luis Paula and Mason McCullough. Incoming freshmen Taylore Cherry and Kayden Porter give the Tar Heels even more power arms (though both are raw), and Porter should bring important righthanded power, having set Utah's career home runs record. Talented freshman Korey Dunbar will compete with junior Matt Roberts to fill UNC's hole behind the plate, and newcomer Skye Bolt adds athleticism and upside to UNC's collection of grinder outfielders (Chaz Frank, Brian Holberton, Parks Jordan, Tom Zengel). Michael Russell, Mike Zolk and Cody Stubbs will team with Moran in a strong infield. With no apparent holes, the Tar Heels should be among the top contenders for the preseason No. 1 ranking.I don't think a pun intended. LOL!

    Looks like we got two so far...not big enough to keep, though. Think I'll throw these back.

    Since you never attended there why do you care? Your high school diploma is still worth the same.
