    What in Tar Nation Ep. 27: Recapping UNC’s start to March Madness, and the days ahead

    Welcome back for another episode of What !n Tar Nation! Tanya Anderson (@tanya__anderson), Brandon Anderson (@THBBrandon), and Julius Emanuel (@UNC_TarHeelFan) are back this week to discuss last week’s ACC Tournament, and preview the NCAA Tournament.
    In this episode we will be discussing:

    The Virginia and Virginia Tech games in the ACC Tournament, including UNC’s lackluster offensive performance in both games.

    Previewing the NCAA Tournament by diving into UNC’s part of the bracket.

    We discuss how far we think the Heels can get into the tournament, which just so happens to turn into a Duke roasting fest, because why not?

Also, while you’re here, be sure to check out http://breakingt.com/TarHeelBlog and pick up new t-shirt designs from our good friends at BreakingT. They have been on fire as of late, releasing a lot of cool new UNC t-shirt designs so you can look great while enjoying March Madness. There’s even some shirts to commemorate UNC spoiling Duke’s party a couple of weeks ago, if that level of petty is your thing.
    We’ll be back next week to hopefully discuss UNC’s wins this weekend, but we will also discuss their exit if it comes down to that. We suppose. Stay safe, and Go Heels!

    What in Tar Nation Ep. 26: Recapping the Duke game, and previewing the ACC Tournament

    Welcome back for another episode of What !n Tar Nation! Tanya Anderson (@tanya__anderson), Brandon Anderson (@THBBrandon), and Julius Emanuel (@UNC_TarHeelFan) are back this week to discuss a big game that apparently took place this past weekend. I don’t know, it was against a team in Durham I think?
    In this episode we will be discussing:

    Recap the big win against Duke, which effectively ruined Coach K’s big night.

    Discussed all of the extracurricular activity following the game, including Duke fans crying, Handshakegate, and the delusion that UNC has become the Blue Devils’ “little brother.”

    We discuss the ACC Tournament, and whether or not UNC has enough left in the tank to make a run.

    We pick teams that aren’t in Carolina blue that we think could spoil the party in Brooklyn for the tournament favorite Blue Devils.

    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.

Great pod!

Great podcast! Really enjoy Chad’s enthusiasm and knowledge👍🏼

Please Brandon

Love the content! But can someone please help editor Brandon with his audio? It’s always terrible quality. On Four Corners episode 1 it sounded like he was dragging his headphone mic along a gravel path. It’s 2020 and podcasts are a known thing: you can do this!

Durham Heel ,

Great

Always great info from TarHeelBlog
