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.

This is it, the end the season awards spectacular. We hand out all sorts of trophies -- coveted and otherwise -- including Best Tweet, Best Dunk and Andy rattles off his very strange Dude awards. 

We also explore the latest rumors about Tar Heels heading to the NBA, and Dook sucks this week because an old friend is going begging for work. Email us at thbthd@gmail.com, visit our web site at thbthd.com, or follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

You may be disappointed by the loss to Kentucky in the Elite 8, but if someone had told you after Carolina got wrecked by Vanderbilt back in Puerto Rico that the team would be one of the last eight standing in March, be honest, you never would have believed that. This episode, we try to make sense of the Marquette and Wildcat games. We also choose our top 3 moments of the season, and Dook sucks this week because, for them, making the Final Four -- or even the Elite 8 -- is a complete anomaly.

Reed and Andy break down the first 2 rounds of the NCAA Tournament.  The identity of Reed's new "boy" is revealed and he tells a story about NOT buying crack in Newark, NJ (where the Heels will play this weekend).  Andy has a serious problem with a dude named Perky.  No lie.

So just why does the team hate NC State so much? The Wolfpack hasn't been a threat since the game was played with a peach basket. Also, we run down the Top 5 Harshest Roy Williams Quotes, and Dook sucks this week because they're about to pull a lame Willis Reed tribute. Count on it. Email us at thbthd@gmail.com.

Did you know that when the groundhog saw his shadow on February 2nd, that he was actually telling everyone that there would be 6 more weeks of Reed and Andy talking about Tar Heel shooting woes?  It's a fact.  This week, we try to figure out if the team is trending up, down or sideways and ask if it is time for a change at the starting "shooting" guard spot.  Tourney Watch zeroes in on how far we might go and we reveal some stats that we have been tracking over the last several games.  Oh, and Reed reads some poetry to Andy during the dook sucks segment.  Seriously.

In this week's episode, we long for more biscuits, try to put our finger on what the crap is going on with our outside shooting and bring you updates on Sean May and Will Graves.  And how does one get over a loss to dook?  By explaining why they still suck, of course.

What a good week it was. Harrison Barnes hits a clutch shot vs. Miami, NC State gets beat so bad that Sidney Lowe will probably be fired at the end of the year (count on it). Good times.

Also, we ponder an interesting voicemail message and relish Dook's pounding at the hands of Big East also-ran St. Johns.
