Tar Heel Bred, Tar Heel Dead - Episode 114

It's the post-Dook episode. Buckle up. What a night -- most of it terrible. The Coach K trophy, the Justise Winslow flying kick, the Dook managers holding towels over Tyus Jones. It was a full night of Dookiness.

Reed and Andy discuss their memories of Coach Smith in this week’s episode. We saw a new starting lineup against Boston College. Will we see more of it and does that mean an increased role for Hicks? The dookies are ruining things in the NBA and gave the boot to a malcontent.

It's a very special episode as we're joined by 2009 national champion Bobby Frasor. He helps us break down the important stories of the week, including big man rotation and, of course, Gerry the Bear. Then we play Carolina Mythbusters, as Frasor confirms or puts to rest some of the most enduring legends in recent UNC basketball history. Finally in Duke Sucks, Coach K won his 1,000th game in a typically humble and non self-congratualtory manner. Email us at thbthd.com

Tar Heel Bred, Tar Heel Dead - Episode 108

Great win against Louisville! So how did the Heels close this one out when they failed in a very similar situation against Notre Dame? We conclude our "Buy, Sell, Hold" exercise, evaluating the bench players. And it's a double dip in Dook Sucks: Andy has a brush with an actual Dookie, and the Devils get destroyed in Raleigh.
