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.

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.
