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.

As the non-conference season draws to a close, we talk about the PJ Hairston situation a little more, try and figure out what the team's real personality is, and give a little love to Isaiah Hicks. Also, we've got a weird stat we've created for Brice Johnson, and in the Duke Sucks segment, Kyle Singler has a new haircut and looks like he should be playing bass for New Order in 1983. Be afraid.

It’s an abbreviated “Andy Is Flying Solo” episode this week as Reed is traveling for the holidays. He tells you what he knows about PJ, discusses Leslie’s return to the court and tries to make sense of the Texas loss and Davidson near-loss. Has Hyde returned or is the team just adjusting to a reworked lineup? Of course you can’t have a podcast without a Duke Sucks segment. This week – Andy warns you about something stinking up the satellite radio waves.

This week, Reed and Andy still can’t believe that the Heels went 3-0 against the top 3 teams in the pre-season poll. James Michael McAdoo stepped up against the Wildcats – and so did the home crowd. More “Buy, Sell or Hold” this week as we take stock in the bench players. Duke has come up with the suckiest marketing campaign ever.

This week, Reed and Andy admit that they somehow didn’t see that stunning win at Michigan State coming. Which is the real team? The one that has two wins over the top three or the one that stunk up the joint at home and on the road against lesser teams? If each player in the starting lineup was a stock, would you buy, sell or hold? In the Duke Sucks segment, K has cleared some cap room and Andy makes a prediction on who is next.

What in the name of James Naismith happened against UAB? That straight-up stunk. So what would you change to make the team better? What's up with McAdoo? And is coaching to blame? On a positive note, we've got things we are thankful for with Carolina basketball this holiday season. Finally, in Duke Sucks, we've got a twofer: The Devils lose to Arizona and Gerald Henderson damages someone's face not named Hansbrough. Email us at thbthd@gmail.com

Huuuuge win this week against Louisville. How in the crap did THAT happen? We offers some ideas. Plus, we've got some not-great rumors about Hairston's status. We also talk to some UNC fans at the Mohegan Sun to get their take on the season, and in the Duke Sucks segment, we've got a special audio shout out. Email us at thbthd@gmail.com

We're just days away from the start of the season, so on this episode, we break down the freshmen, debate the starting line-up and wonder what will happen to the team of PJ and Leslie get sent to SingSing. Also, we've got some young scouts who offer their thoughts on the exhibition game, and in Duke Sucks, someone hates a Dookie enough to try and hit him with his car. That's just hardcore. (We should mention that the Dookie in question was not seriously hurt.) Email us at thbthd@gmail.com

In this week’s episode, Reed and Andy take a closer look at the 2013-2014 schedule. We break down the toughest games, predict how the Heels will finish and debate if a school known as “Northern Kentucky” actually exists. Once again, the Duke Sucks segment was gift-wrapped for us in the form of their out of conference schedule. Who in the world is putting together the matchups for the ACC-Big 10 Challenge anyways?

It is the mid-summer off-season podcast with a special shout out to Danny Green and his NBA playoff run. Reggie Bullock is a Clipper and we check in on the annual summer pick-up games. We also ask the question: “PJ Hairston! Why hast thou forsaken us?” Also – Duke players suck in the NBA draft.

In this week’s episode, it is the 2012-2013 Post-Season Awards Show. MVP. Best Stat. Best Dunk. And of course, Best Hair. In the Duke Sucks segment, we ponder “Where hast thou gone, O Dookie Floor Slap?
