Wolfpack holds No. 5 while Tar Heels rest

Posted May 6, 2013

A three-game sweep of visiting Presbyterian over the weekend allowed the North Carolina State University Wolfpack to lock down No. 5 in the Baseball America poll, but the Tar Heels continue to hold the top spot.

The University of North Carolina played just one game during exam week – an impressive 13-0 shutout of the Citadel – but holds a 42-4 overall record (19-3 ACC) with series coming up against James Madison and Georgia Tech.

The Tar Heels have spent 12 weeks at No. 1.

    Most people can't comment on college baseball because unlike college football and college basketball, you can't just flip on any of espn's 5 channels (or fox sports) and find any baseball coverage. This will change when the college world series starts, but by that time most people will be concerned with the pre-season NFL and NCAA football coverage.

    the problem is no one cares about college baseball around here, for some reason...i have been talking up NCSU baseball for years on these forums, and no one replies...if you notice, whenever wral does post something about local college baseball, they get scant posts from the readers, or no posts at all....we all know that readers posts are what keep topics alive...that is why wral likes to post deliberately inciteful topics relative to duke,unc&State basketball&football, b/c they are the topics that illicit the most responses from us, the readers...its the fault of the readers here, who consistently show that they care little, to nothing, about local baseball...the last couple of posts about the recent 3 game sweep of the blue hose by the Wolfpack got a pitiful few responses.....NCSU fans go gaga over basketball and football, when NCSU baseball has been consistently better for years now

    You're right about State and UNC possibly meeting in Omaha, and I bet they meet in the ACCT first. It really is remarkable that these schools, and really the ACC, is doing so well in baseball. The ACC is actually better in baseball than basketball these days.

    ^ They also won the Div II National title in 2008.

    Toddler, you're right about Mount Olive College. They are 46-6 on the year and #2 in the nation. They were holding at #1 in the country until last week when they lost 2 games. They are finished with the regular season and are preparing for the regionals. They have a year in and year out top program in the country.

    So excited about the Pack in baseball this spring!

    There is great baseball in the D two ranks. Mount Olive is one of the best around. I remember playing for ST. Augstines in the 80's. We played some great teams. Armstrong state, Methodist, Wesleyan, Olive. Those were some great games that I will never forget. Wouldn't it be nice if unc/state be in the CWS final? It could happen.

    Must be a slow sports day at WRAL....that you posted the College Baseball rankings information. Last week when the teams were playing and winning, you managed to post NOTHING.

    And furthermore the week of May 25th through June 1st, the NCAA Division II National Baseball Championships are scheduled to be played at the USA Baseball Training Complex in Cary once again (and it is GREAT COLLEGE BASEBALL) and I'll be willing to bet there will not be any coverage of that either on the WRAL Webpage.

    For shame....the number ONE and FIVE NATIONALLY RANKED COLLEGE BASEBALL Teams are within 30 miles of your station and yet there is very little coverage.....I'd be interested in what feeble excuse you have to offer......
