Damn Beavers!!!

The Tar Heels were beaten in finals of the College World Series for the second straight year by Oregon State, falling 9-3 and failing to stop the Beavers from becoming the first repeat national champion in 10 years.

Carolina's players leaned against the dugout railing as they watched Oregon State raise the trophy, put on national champion T-shirts, and pose for pictures as fans cheered.

But coach Mike Fox wasn't one of them.

"Reid (Fronk) didn't want to watch the celebration and neither did I," Fox said. "I'd seen that before, so I just went in the locker room."

North Carolina (57-16) scattered three runs over the first five innings, but could never break through against Oregon State. The Beavers (49-18) retired the last seven batters and the Tar Heels left runners on base in all but three innings -- a total of 18 in two games against OSU.
