Barring a date with Mother Nature’s nasty side, The USC baseball team will get their Super-Regional series with the Tar Heels of UNC underway Friday night in Chappel Hill. Before USC head coach Chad Holbrook became a Gamecock as an assistant on Ray Tanner’s staff in 2008, he spent plenty of time in Chappell Hill as a Tar Heel himself on two different occasions, once as player and student, and another stint as assistant coach under Mike Fox.
Wednesday Holbrook spoke with the media about what he believes and hopes his return trip to a place he knows so well will be like.
Holbrook spent ample time rehashing his days wearing the powder blue and attempting to beat the garnet and black he currently sports now. He also addressed the X’s-and-O’s of the series against his former head coach.
