The unbelievable Carolina-State game just ended, and Ben and Shane are on hand to talk it out as best they can. Was the duel between Warren and Paige the best we've ever seen in the ACC? Can two non-State fans possibly understand the heartbreak of that loss for the Wolfpack? And why, why, why, are we talking about the refs again after another close loss? For State, it's another disheartening loss in a season full of them, while Carolina has asked itself another question about its resiliency and come up with the right answer. That's ten in a row for the Heels, and Ben and Shane debate about what this means for them in the tournament. The fellas touch on this weekend's Syracuse-Virginia game, the de facto ACC championship, and finish with what is definitely the most lively session of twitter questions ever. A great episode for a great game.

Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q wants to once again #FeedTheRivalry!

FeedTheRivalry Contest Basketball 2014There isn’t much geographical middle ground between rival universities around the Triangle area of North Carolina. Wednesday will once again be center to heated discussions on who’s the favorite between UNC and NC State basketball teams. A lot of people who are nice to each other 12 months out of the year won’t be so nice. It’s blue against red at work, school, and in the stands.

Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q wants to #FeedTheRivalry once again during the UNC vs. NCSU game. We want to give something to hoops fans by holding a contest, so join in.

But first we ask, would you take a photo with your hated rival for a chance to win a $50 SCNB Gift Card?

If you are up to the challenge, then snap a shot. Take a photo with the opposite fan, a NCSU or a UNC fan and submit it by email or tweet to enter.

Duke-Cuse Part II is fresh in everybody's mind, and Ben and Shane are no exception. This week, the guys take out the microscope and examine the big win in Cameron, beginning with the end. Was it a charge? Should Boeheim have showed more self-control? Should the refs have let him vent? And what does this game say about both teams? You won't be surprised to know there are some major disagreements. Later, the talk turns to T.J. Warren, UNC destroying Wake, and the State-Carolina dynamic.

ACCSports.com Podcast: Whistles and Hot Seats

Accsports-logo-scnbThis week the guys want to know if there are any stones left unturned from the NC State v. Syracuse game. We wonder if this goes into the annals of NCSTATESHEEEEEEEEEEE. Syracuse is unbeaten ... but is it actually the third-best team in the ACC? Just how bad is the bottom of the ACC? (This was recorded WHILE Virginia Tech was ahead of UVa in the second half, of course.) Why the ACC would really have liked to see N.C. State knock off Syracuse. Another week, another rush of angry ref tweets sent to @ACCSports. A random digression into musicals. Then back to a philosophical discussion of referees and Jim connects it to journalism. And can we find a better way to measure ref performance? Seriously, this will all make sense if you listen to it. The weekly ACC Sports Journal podcast is available for free online at TheMesh.tv.

Today, Ben and Shane are putting on their houndstooth coats, donning their deerstalker caps, and holding a magnifying glass to the Big Four's tournament chances. We know Duke's in, but can the Devils fetch a 1-seed? Should we be taking State and Wake's tournament hopes seriously, or are they dead in the stagnant ACC waters? Can UNC rise as high as an 8-seed? Plus, the duo analyzes why Virginia gets no respect, and invents a wonderful new nickname for Marshall Plumlee. If you miss this episode, you're no better than Karl Hess.

ACCSports.com Podcast: Showdowns and Signing Day

Accsports-logo-scnbThis week the guy’s talk about adjusting to "ACC basketball on Monday night" thing.

Last weekend's ACC Final Four. - Duke-Syracuse talk. They break down how they would have dunked differently than Rodney Hood did. And they second-guess a pair of Hall of Fame coaches. On to Pitt-Virginia. What does Jim have against defensive matchups? Is UVa Final Four-worthy? Also, all aboard the Brogdon Train!!! National Signing Day does exist. Then they talk about the whole hype thing. Jim argues for why you should at least be interested in the whole thing. An last, Super Bowl talk ... which means Russell Wilson talk.

ACCSports.com Podcast: Sickness, Snow And Hoops

Accsports-logo-scnbThis week the guys talk about THE story that everyone on Tobacco Road is talking about ... Laura Keeley's Jabari Parker piece! Is it possible that the ACC old guard was glad to see Duke win at Pitt? After watching Rodney Hood shut down Lamar Patterson, Jim wonders if maybe, just maybe, his blind vote for Hood as ACC pre-season Player of the Year might be right? Handshakegate. Was Jamie Dixon mad at K? The refs? His team? The world? Jim and Hayes do a Zapruder Filmesque breakdown of the video. Obligatory ACC/Super Bowl talk. Which means obligatory TOB/Russell Wilson/Mike Glennon Saga rehashing. What was tougher - Thomas playing wideout in the triple option? Or fellow Techster Calvin Johnson playing wideout with Reggie Ball as his QB? Jim and Hayes shower some affection on two ACC guys each who have turned their head for their hoops exploits in the past week. Not surprisingly, Hayes goes Tobacco Road while Jim goes Virginia.
