What They're Saying: Anson Dorrance

"It's not a strange feeling at all -- it's a joyous one. It's like you've got two kids playing on opposite teams in a World Cup final, you root for both of them. The fact I've got Sarina coaching the Dutch … if the Dutch do happen to win, the pain of seeing my country losing will be a lot less, I promise you."

-- North Carolina coach Anson Dorrance on former player Sarina Wiegman, who will coach the Netherlands in the Women's World Cup final against the USA, which features five former Tar Heels. Wiegman played on the 1989 UNC team, which featured seniors Shannon Higgins and Carla Werden and freshmen Mia Hamm and Kristine Lilly, all future world champions, and went 24-0-1, winning a national championship.
