Chapel Hill Super Regional Prediction

Congratulations to Auburn head coach Butch Thompson and his Tiger player for showing an incredible never-quit attitude in the postseason. In the SEC Tournament against LSU the Tigers blew a last out 1-run lead when they gave up a wild pitch to score a tying run and then an error on a throw that allowed the winning run (all this in the same at-bat). They were the laughing stock of college baseball but look at them now. They went over to the Atlanta Regional and kicked some ACC tail. They could do it again this weekend at North Carolina but it won’t be easy. North Carolina 2 wins, Auburn 1 win.
