#133 - HEELELUJAH
NEWS UPDATE: UNC's Board of Trustees has called an emergency meeting at noon EDT today, according to the University Communications website. The purpose of this emergency meeting is "to receive a legal update regarding an athletics matter," according to the site.
The Tar Heels survived a 2OT thriller against App State to move to 2-0 on the season. The close game dropped UNC to No. 20 in this week's AP Poll, but Tyler Hansbrough and Brandon Staton aren't sweating it. Carolina was - and will remain - without No. 1 wide receiver Tez Walker whom the NCAA inexplicably ruled ineligible for the season. Plus, Big Hawk and Sleep Dawg stay up late to cover NFL football for the people and Team USA fails to medal in the World Cup.
#132 - The REAL Carolina
The Tar Heels took care of business in a big way, knocking off South Carolina 31-17 in Charlotte to open the college football season. Sleep Dawg and newly-minted Hall of Famer Big Hawk unpack the game and look at the season ahead with renewed optimism. UNC's top wideout Tez Walker remains sidelined due to NCAA incompetence and now Tar Heel tennis player Fiona Crawley is caught in the suck, forfeiting $81,000 in winnings at the U.S. Open. Plus, NFL football is upon us, team USA loses to Lithuania, and the worst liquor in Chicago.

We welcome back Ross Martin, Twitter fire starter and UNC football insider, to dissect the Tez Walker situation and answer the burning question: Will the NCAA take its head out of its ass before 7:30 p.m. on September 2? Plus, we unpack Aaron Rodgers vis a vis hard knocks; the scud missile James Harden shot right at 76ers president Daryl Morey; and which dog movies make you cry the hardest. Bonus cookie review, too.
