    What in Tar Nation Ep. 23: UNC 31, Syracuse 6

    Welcome back for another episode of What In Tar Nation! We finally got to watch some Carolina football this weekend, and they blessed us with the gift of beating down Syracuse. As always, Tanya Bondurant joined me following the game to break it all down.
    In this episode we will be discussing:

    How bad the offenses were for much of the game, and/or how great the defenses played.

    Javonte Williams and Michael Carter playing sizable roles in getting the offense going, and also some new plays we will see them involved in.

    Storm Duck showing out to open his sophomore campaign, and we ponder if he will be able to continue his success.

    Best/worst of the game.

    What in Tar Nation Ep. 22: The Roni is Gonna Get You

    Welcome back for another episode of What In Tar Nation! There has been a fair amount of news happening in the college sports universe, and amazingly some significant news surrounding Carolina athletics. There was some good news from the last couple of weeks, but unfortunately there is some troublesome news that Tanya and I dove into.
    In this episode we will be discussing:

    Carolina’s COVID-19 tests on fall sports athletes came in, and 37 players have tested positive for the virus.

    The impact that this will have on Carolina football, and whether or not it’s time for the ACC to have a little talk.

    The Ivy League being the first conference to cancel fall sports.

    The Black Lives Matter video that was released by the Carolina basketball program.

    Best/worst of the last couple of weeks.

    Whether or not Roy Williams will and should coach should the NCAA give the green light.

    Mack Brown Remains on a Mission

    Mack Brown Remains on a Mission

    On a quiet, COVID-19 locked-down Friday afternoon, Mack Brown and the North Carolina coaching staff secured two more commitments for the 2021 class.
    Host Chad Floyd and esteemed guest Jake Lawrence (@Chad_Floyd and @therealestrjl on Twitter, btw) had a brief conversation about it.
    There was a back-and-forth between marveling at Brown’s efforts, and talking about the merits of the newest commitments, Raneiria Dillworth (who chose the Tar Heels over Alabama) and Jared Wilson (a former Georgia commitment.)

    Two more scores in-state for the Tar Heels. While the state is on lockdown, is Mack Brown the new Governor?

    Wilson: a hyper-athletic man for 325 pounds, and how he defies the often difficult high school offensive lineman evaluation process.

    Dillworth: safety? Linebacker? Swiss Army Knife? How does Jay Bateman plan on deploying guys like him, Gabe Stephens, Ja’Quirious Conley, and Dontavious Nash? (Hint, its gonna be fun.)

    Do we play two 2021 seasons at this point?

    We were brief today, but we needed to laud the fact that Carolina is #2 in the country in football recruiting. If you like us, subscribe. Go Heels.

    Four Corners, Ep. 1: Social Distancing

    Four Corners, Ep. 1: Social Distancing

    Welcome to Four Corners! This podcast doesn’t really fit a specific genre, so we created a new one.
    Host Chad Floyd (@Chad_Floyd) and esteemed guest Brandon Anderson (@THBBrandon) sort through the complete, silent, confusing chaos and talk about some random life adaptations before rounding into sports:

    Coffee and alcohol consumption;

    New hobbies, things that are missed, were taken for granted, etc.;

    The cruelty of an airborne virus hitting during pollen season in the South;

    The weirdness of covering the ACC Tournament as the world came to a stop on March 11th;

    A fact not previously discussed: what Carolina basketball did that Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, Virginia, and most every other national contender didn’t do in 2020;

    How are we going to get football started on time? CAN we get football started on time? SHOULD we get football started on time?

    Best memes to come out of the COVID era.

    These are weird times, and with no actual sports to really talk about, we’re open to suggestions! Here’s hoping y’all enjoy some rambling and are staying indoors and healthy.
    Til next time, Go Heels!

    Between the Banners Ep. 32: Can the Heels Make a Run in the ACCT?

    Between the Banners Ep. 32: Can the Heels Make a Run in the ACCT?

    Between the Banners is back to preview the ACC Tournament!
    Host Chad Floyd (@Chad_Floyd) is joined by Al Hood (@albhood) to break down this week’s ACC Tournament in Greensboro, to which Tar Heels fans have to pay attention as early as today!
    Discussed:

    The tournament, by quadrants, starting with Carolina’s: Al and Chad agree that the Heels should cruise by Virginia Tech, can they beat Syracuse again? Big, bad Louisville looms on Thursday.

    Virginia has to make it out of the Catholic region (yes, I realize Boston College is Jesuit). Notre Dame still intrigues Chad, as it has for the whole season.

    Duke should cruise through to Friday, as Wake, Pitt, and State stand in their way.

    Can Florida State actually pull the clean sweep on the regular season and tournament? The three “football schools” in the conference occupy the early slot on Wednesday and Thursday, and there’s probably some chaos potential.

    You found us, don’t lose us. Subscribe on your podcast purveyor of choice, leave us a 5-star review (speaking of 5-stars, look at Mack Brown’s recruiting) on Apple Podcasts and I’ll read it on the air!

    Keep it locked, and Go Heels!
