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.

Texas. Awful. So what's gone wrong? And who is Reggie Bullock calling out with his "trying to get his own stats" comments? We have some guesses. Also, Dook sucks this week because Miles Plumlee got recalled from the D League. But only for about 13 minutes.

This week, a furious debate breaks out, the likes of which the country hasn't seen since that whole Team Jacob/Team Edward junk. Which side are you on: Team Marcus or Team Strickland? Also, we play Buy/Sell/Hold with the bench players, and in Dook Sucks, Austin Rivers is on pace to be among the worst rookie guards of all time. Of. All. Time.

In this week’s episode, we take yet another look at the James/Johnson/Hubert situation and get pumped up about JP Tokoto’s athletic prowess. Reed reveals something about Reggie Bullock that catches Andy off-guard. If each of the starting five was a stock, would you be Buying, Selling or Holding? In Duke Sucks, Brian Zoubek takes his cream puffs on the road (neutral site, of course).

In this week’s episode, the permatopic is back. Starting at center for UNC next week? Caller #5. Sure, the Indiana loss sucked, but what does it really mean for the rest of the season? Did the injury to Marcus Paige give the team a silver lining in terms of the starting lineup? Reed quizzes Andy on some of the team’s more obscure career high stats and we understand the dookies are trying to create a nickname again for one of their freshmen.

In this week’s episode, Andy and Reed gladly bury the one-week permatopic about the Desmond Hubert Experiment. With all of the 3-pointers the Tar Heels are hoisting up, are we – gulp – turning into Duke? The phenomenon of the Small Ball lineup is covered and we share with you what we are thankful for this year. In Duke Sucks, we officially put a dookie pine rider on transfer alert.

Author Ian Williams joins Andy and Reed again to discuss why in the name of Odin's beard Desmond Hubert is still starting and the rotation in general. Also, Ian has some on-the-ground observations after the game at Long Beach State where he met some so-called "Wal-Mart fans." Finally, Dook sucks this week because they evidently believe they're part of some kind of Al Jolson film.

Reed and Andy try to forget about some crazy predictions made last week by making more crazy predictions after two games versus less than stellar competition. James Michael McAdoo is making us believers while this Desmond Hubert starting thing just confuses us. FTs? WTF? What else would Bojangles do for discounted biscuits? (100 points ain’t happenin’, folks). In Duke Sucks this week, we check in on a dookie rookie in the NBA.

It's the annual predictions episode, as Andy and Reed make completely unscientific predictions about the upcoming season based on nothing more than one exhibition game and a fortune-telling octopus. So who will be Carolina's leading scorer, top defender or assist leader? What will the team's record be and which player will become Mr. Biscuits? Also, we've got a prediction in this week's Dook Sucks segment.

In this week’s episode, Andy and Reed put waaaaaay too much stock in breaking down a glorified practice (aka – the exhibition game) against Shaw. We get a read on the “ACL Boys”, the incoming freshman class and HOLY CRAP DID DESMOND HUBERT SERIOUSLY START???!?!? In a special “Duke Sucks” moment, find out what Eric Montross thought about the book.

It's the annual schedule episode where Reed and Andy go through the games for the upcoming season. Which game scares us? What is the toughest stretch? What poor team is facing an epic beatdown? For this week's reason why Duke Sucks, we talk about Jesus pendants, a dude who averaged like 6 points a game and the dream of an asterisk.
