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.

To them, it's their Super Bowl. To us, it's just another conference game. We discuss the very important win over wannabe rival NC State. Also, renovations might be planned for the Dean Dome. We throw out our suggestions of what should be done, including updating the awful bathrooms. In Dook Sucks, a big-dreaming entrepreneur with a wing and a pastry bag crashed to earth this week. If you listen to this podcast, you probably already know who it is.

A Led Zeppelin reunion tour. A decent NBC show. A unicorn. Carolina making a change in the starting line-up. These are all things we never thought we'd see in our lifetime. But that last one happened, and suddenly, UNC is playing much better. We discuss. Also, we've got part 2 of our NBA All-Star awards for Heels in the pros. In Dook Sucks, the Blue Devils always have some lame excuse when they lose.

In this week’s episode, we really, really didn’t want to talk about the starting lineup but it just can’t be avoided. Apparently there is a line painted on the court and if you stand behind that line and make a shot, it counts for three points! Who knew? The goal for Wednesday’s game in Durham? Don’t get humiliated. Yay! Since it is NBA All-Star week, we hand out awards for the Heels in The League and the dookies have given us a bounty of things to pick from for this week’s reason why “Duke Sucks”.

This week, despite getting two wins closer to the tournament, Reed and Andy are stumped trying to figure out a way to avoid the slow starts. Will the Virginia Tech overtime win be the defining moment for Marcus Paige this season? At this point, we are pretty sure Roy is just messing with us on this starting center thing. We take a look at where the Heels rank in some national statistics – and the picture it paints is surprising. In “Duke Sucks”, a Duke grad embarrasses herself in written form and, don’t look now, but we have some hate mail.
