ACCSports.com Podcast: Snow! and the Senior Bowl

Accsports-logo-scnbThis week the guys it’s about Senior Bowl talk! Can Logan Thomas make some money this week? What other ACC alums have a lot on the line this week? Also, Aaron Donald is impressing people. Which ACC underclassmen raised some eyebrows by declaring for the 2014 NFL Draft? Pitt! Syracuse! A HUGE ACC matchup! #NewSchoolUpdate at its finest! But first, let's talk chicken 'n waffles. Then we give love to Lamar Patterson and Tyler Ennis. Speaking of which Ennis vs. Parker for ACC Freshman of the Year. "A-C-C! A-C-C!" Is this going to be a looooong final road schedule for Maryland hoops? ESPN Triangle basketball writer C.L. Brown was robbed ... and they took his collection of basketball shorts.

ACCSports.com Podcast:

Accsports-logo-scnbThis week the guys talk about the legal issues for Maryland's latest countersuit against the ACC. Is the ACC trying to lure Big Ten schools away? Hayes TOTALLY blew a chance to pound his chest for landing John Swofford as a guest on the David Glenn Show on the same day the Maryland countersuit made news. Did Jim abandon his UVa/Tony Bennett crush too soon? Apparently so. But seriously, did that 35-point loss to Tennessee really happen? Can Syracuse run the table in the ACC? Are those new rules still being enforced? Clemson basketball! Are the Tigers sneaky good? Can Jaron Blossomgame be a difference maker? Does anyone want to talk about Bobby Petrino's return to Louisville? Not Hayes and Jim. The weekly ACC Sports Journal podcast is available for free online at TheMesh.tv.

Spreading Holiday Cheer to Senior Resources of Guilford

senior resources guilford ctyDuring December, the time of year for giving back to our community, the Senior Resources of Guilford hosted a Jingle Bell Ball event for caregivers.

Debra Stokes, Program Coordinator, sent us this response after the event:

“The Jingle Bell Ball for Grandparent/Kinship Caregivers was a huge success thanks to all of the donations from the community. The caregivers loved the pork shoulder so I am putting you on notice for December 2014. I can’t begin to tell you how well the barbeque went over I was so pleased that they loved it so much.

We call it the Jingle Bell Ball because we focus on families that do not get to go to the ball and celebrate like other families; the children really had a great time, this event made life so much easier just for a moment for the caregivers in our support group. We served 200 children and their caregivers at this event. We provided lunch for everyone, gifts for the caregivers and toys for the children. Santa was there and a host of other activities for the day.

Again thanks for your support of Senior Resources of Guilford and the kinship caregivers that are in our program.”

We are grateful to serve!

Nubian Spann of Panther Creek High School Shatters Backboard and Declares #TeamSlaw

January 10, 2014 a senior from Panther Creek High School in Raleigh shatters the basketball backboard while dunking during a game. He made national news on ESPN.

Coach Sullivan tweeted out:

coach sullivan tweeted about nubian spann

Which started a frenzy of twitter activity...

tweets about nubian spann and free bbq


Nick Stevens @NickStevensHSOT tweeted "Not only does he deserve extra credit. I'm thinking exam exemption and a free @scnbnc sandwich for lunch." click here to read his article

So we asked Nubian if he is for #TeamSlaw or #TeamNoSlaw. Here's his answer:

nubian spann

Looks like it's going to be #TeamSlaw.

The game was postponed because the school didn't have another backboard to replace the shattered one. It's scheduled for Thursday January 16th.

Supporting the Red Cross’ Blood Drive with a Tasty Treat

Red Cross Blood Drive Sponsored by SCNBOn January 7th, the local Red Cross chapter held a blood drive at the Highway Patrol and Emergency Management (NCNG). Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q supported the event by providing lunch to the donors.  Our Morrisville NC location was honored to work with the staff at the local Red Cross chapter.

“Thank you so much for your support and generous donation. Everyone was thrilled to have such a treat,” said Dallas Ellington, Red Cross Representative.

It was a successful event with 50 donors and 41 units of blood collected.  Did you know that one pint of blood saves three lives?

Giving blood that impacts lives of those in need is a powerful way to support your community.

We are grateful to serve.

RealTailgate Hoops Hangout for Thursday 1-9-14

SfieldHHangout_NewThe RealTailGate.com Hoops Hangout is a bi-weekly college basketball podcast we are sponsoring. Don't miss any Monday or Thursday episodes. Subscribe to our podcast in itunes and each new episode will automatically download so you can listen whenever you want. Eternal question - does a win still count as a win when it comes as a result of a letdown? The "Duke Hangover" is for real, but that doesn't mean NC State isn't for real too, and Ben and Shane think people should relax and not getting so worked up over sports. KIDDING! We love it when you're crazy about sports, especially when you get worked up over the distribution of free throws during the course of a game. State! Wake! Duke! UNC! No letdown here, people!

ACCSports.com Podcast: Title Talk

Accsports-logo-scnbTitle talk! Fan overreactions! Red Lighning! #NewSchoolUpdate! All discussed on this week's ACCSports.com podcast. Finally, the national title returns to its rightful place! It’s been concluded that FSU can win close games now. And Hayes now thinks Jameis Winston is a credible QB. So apparently some FSU fans overreacted juuuust a bit when the Noles fell behind. Should the next ACC season be one long show of appreciation for the Noles? Plus they explore the Red Lightning cultural phenomenon. Oh and we need to talk Duke-Texas A&M a little. NO MORAL VICTORIES!!!??!? PUT CUTCLIFFE ON NOTICE!!??!! Or ... maybe not. ACC hoops. #NEWSCHOOLUPDATE!!! With some #NEWSCHOOLLOVE!!!! And let's microanalyze Duke's flaws too, why don't we? And UVa-FSU? Sooo confused. The weekly ACC Sports Journal podcast is available for free online at TheMesh.tv.

RealTailgate.com Hoops Hangout for Monday 1/6/14

SfieldHHangout_NewThe RealTailGate.com Hoops Hangout is a bi-weekly college basketball podcast we are sponsoring. Don't miss any Monday or Thursday episodes. Subscribe to our podcast in itunes and each new episode will automatically download so you can listen whenever you want. What a weekend! Duke loses at Notre Dame, Virginia rolls Florida State at home, Pitt runs all over NC State and Miami takes Syracuse to the brink. What a memorable opening weekend for the new-look ACC, and a quick look ahead at UNC and Wake Forest (who couldn't coordinate their schedules to get the game in before we recorded). Should Coach K have benched Jabari? Did the ACC media not give enough credit to the "goons from up north"? All of this and more as we remind you that it's not a true road game without the barbecue. You can listen to all the shows at RealTailgate.com, www.themesh.tv or available free at the iTunes store for you to download. Make sure you rate the show!
