Tar Heel Bred, Tar Heel Dead
The UNC basketball podcast for people who'd rather have a beer with Roy Williams than just about anyone. Even Oprah.

Is it fair to be talking about the Heels being soft when Tyler Zeller just stomped all over Appalachian State like Godzilla on Tokyo? And, in the spirit of the holidays, we've got gifts for some of the UNC players. (Hint: it's not a Walmart gift card.) Finally, Duke sucks this week because ESPN has apparently lost some sort of bet that forces them to assign Duke alums, including the incredibly awful Jay Wiliams, to call all our games.

In this week's episode, we break down what happened at the end of the Kentucky game and try to do it without busting on Zeller. Reed is backing away from the ledge after a week against two top ten opponents. We talk about THE unibrow and Duke Sucks because of a newbie named Zero.

On this episode, we state the obvious: that UNLV loss kind of sucked. But what does it mean going forward? And we've got a special report from West Coast correspondent Brock Towler who took the pulse of the Tar Heel fans in Sin City. Finally, Duke sucks this week because, as our math will prove, Coach K hasn't even passed Dean Smith on the wins list. Visit us at thbthd.com or email us at thbthd@gmail.com

Two road games, two wins.  But two very odd locations. Reed and Andy break down the Carrier Classic and the UNC-Asheville game and we find out what Andy might say if he met Obama. A listener calls Reed out in a voicemail and Duke Sucks this week because Coach K weighs in on child rape (aka - the Penn State situation).

With the season less than a week away, Andy and Reed go out on a limb and make some predictions in various categories, both important and completely unimportant. Who will be Carolina's leading scorer? Leading rebounder? Who will have the best haircut? Also, Dook sucks because of their Nazi propaganda-ish offering "Worldwide." Terrible. Just terrible.

It's a special extra-length preseason episode. The 2011-2012 basketball schedule is out, and Andy and Reed run it down game by game, from the gimmes (Nicholls?), to the maybes (Texas) to the oh, $&*!^*'s (Kentucky). 

Also, Dook sucks this time because they are so very, very rich. Filthy, stinking, horrible rich. Email us at thbthd@gmail.com or visit our web site at thbthd.com

This time out, Andy and Reed take a look at the incoming class of five, running them down from least hyped to most. Will they be more Antawn Jamisons or Justin Bohlanders? Also, Dook sucks this time because Coach K may have finally -- finally -- gotten busted doing something illegal. Bout time. Email us at thbthd@gmail.com or visit our web site thbthd.com

Ever wonder who's Carolina's best defender or why Harrison Barnes got so much better in the second half of the season? Stats guru Adrian Atkinson drops by to dish on what the numbers say from last season. Plus, he's got a surprise in store for who was the team's plus/minus loser. And Dook sucks this week because its bench is getting mighty crowded with wash-outs. Email us at thbthd@gmail.com or visit our site at thbthd.com.

Break out a celebratory Bojangles biscuit! Harrison Barnes is coming back! On this special breaking news episode, Andy and Reed salivate over the prospect of the 2012 team, and we play a bunch of voicemails from equally enthusiastic listeners. Also, Dook sucks this week because of some bull involving Kyrie Irving.

In this episode, Reed and Andy do their 2nd of who knows how many "post-season wrap-up" shows with special guest Jonathan Jones, Sports Editor for The Daily Tar Heel. Jonathan tells us where he thinks the season turned around, he shares the story of how a simple head nod from John Henson impressed his girlfriend and what he hears (but can't share on a family podcast) when sitting courtside. And in "Dook Sucks" this week, we take a peek at what the student newspaper 8 miles down the road is up to.
