Brendan points out all of the places this team has progressed greatly over the last season or two under Hubert Davis.

For the 4th time in 5 years we’ll have the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl….and the first of those appearances turned out to be a 30-21 win over the San Francisco 49ers….so let’s have at it.   49ers 34-31 Lions   -Decisions, decisions, decisions…. -This is going to be the defining conversation of SF’s comeback win (separate conversation about how the 49ers have been outplayed in 5 of 8 quarters and won both games) -Real reason why the 49ers are going to Vegas is they got their act in gear on offense in the 2nd half.  281 yards of offense on the 5 drives that produced scores (FG-TD-TD-FG-TD) -Brock Purdy with three significant first down scrambles. -Brandon Aiyuk catching a 51 yard pass off the facemask of a Detroit defensive back (should have been an interception/incomoplete pass, but…) -Josh Reynolds back to back dropped passes and the Jamyr Gibbs fumble were waaaaaay more consequential.       KC 17-10 Baltimore   -Ravens have to be the happiest bunch in the world that there was so many debateable things about the SF win, because – nationally speaking – they’re almost getting a pass. -The Chiefs are great and Patrick Mahomes might end up as the most decorated QB ever before it’s over, but this was a Ravens disaster. -How do you run the ball only 16 times all game?  And, some of those are Lamar scrambles, so….what 13 called running plays? -Zay Flowers had a great game with 115 yards receiving and a touchdown, but a stupid taunting penalty (separate convo about that), a fumble going into the end zone and then a boo-boo when you slam your hand on the bench. -Ravens also committed a couple of personal fouls that gave KC 30 yards late in the game. -Brilliant to jump off on 1st and 5….even if they went too far and made it a personal foul.

North Carolina, like a lot of us on a cold, winter night, went to sleep a little early….   -They were in the process of blowing out Louisville, twice, but did enough to allow the Cardinals to hang around frittering away big leads. -In the end, it was a comfortable, 17 point win. -Make no mistake, the Cards are bad and the Heels are a FF caliber squad, so if you want to read into all of that, I think it’s a mistake. -But, it’s a lesson at the least. -Davis, 21-6-6 4/7 3s -Bacot 19-7-5 -Jaylen Withers, 15-10 in 24 minutes -Carolina shot 10/22 from deep and 48% overall with 19/29 assisted fgs….so? -Cards shot it well, and if they didn’t commit some careless turnovers maybe we have a different story.    Bacot had three blocks. He passed Warren Martin for fourth most by a Tar Heel with 191. • Bacot passed Virginia’s Ralph Sampson for fourth all-time in ACC history in rebounds. Bacot has 1,5     Bill Belichick is heading into his second interview with the Atlanta Falcons… -Can’t decide if it’s more odd that he’s going in for a second interview or the state reasons why Atlanta is looked at as maybe the second best situation behind the Chargers. -It’s an easier division to win. -Excuse me?   As expected, the Dallas Cowboys are staying the course and keeping Mike McCarthy as head coach. -On one hand, they’ve won 12 games in each of the last 3 years and twice won the NFC East. -On the other hand, they’ve not advanced past the divisional round and are 1-3 in the playoffs under McCarthy. -But, Jerry Jones’ history has been patience when it comes to the head coaching spot.  Jason Garrett got 8 full seasons.   I don’t know what the Eagles will do.  I think there’s enough good from Nick Siriani to keep him, though the assistant coach drain might have been an issue this year. -Decision-making was suboptimal Monday night -But, coming out of their locker room now are comments about the switch of DCs mid-stream and how difficult it was to deal with.  Like having two marriages. -That second one, especially since it made them worse, is the fireable offense.   Hurricanes back on the practice ice today….everyone but Pyotr Kochetkov (and Freddie Andersen, of course) -Two more home games…

Michigan 34-13 over Washington… -That final score seems accurate in terms of the way the game looked.  However, this was absolutely a game that was there for the Huskies to steal. -How many possessions did Washington have down just 7 points and how many times did they miss on plays that they could have made? Let’s not forget that Michigan has been dealing with the signal stealing scandal the back half of the year.  And, while it didn’t have anything to do with their wins over Alabama and Washington, to say that it didn’t have anything to do with other wins is silly.   -It might have had NOTHING to do with it, especially since they played one of the easiest schedules in the run up to the end of the season. -But, you are just wishing it to be true if you think it was irrelevant. -What was there to do about it?  Nothing from the NCAA perspective.  This was always going to be up to the league (HA) or the school (double HA).   -There is no honor among thieves.   Panthers have a list of interview requests and you won’t be surprised to know that it leans primarily to the offensive side… -No, Jim Harbaugh and Bill Belichick are NOT on the list.   Duke is at Pitt tonight (9pm) in a game that will be a ton more difficult than you might think. -Road games aren’t cake walks. -Pitt should  be better than their record (1-3, 10-5) -Duke hasn’t really established a rhythm of who they are just yet.   Tiger and Nike split… -$660m in Nike money

Is this on the Lions or the refs when it comes to who dropped the ball? What should've been done differently?

It looks like the Carolina Hurricanes are getting their stride back, so is it finally getting the power play going or something else? Who’s really been stepping up lately, that’s definitely showing with their most recent wins? Who doesn’t have to be “great” he just has to be “not terrible”? The NY Rangers hold THIS stat, which could prove to be an issue for the Canes but how does Luke believe they’ll handle it? How much has Jack Drury been a helping force on the team? What’s been Seth Jarvis’ value lately?

CANES WIN AGAIN! Svech - Hat Trick Fast - two goals Aho - FOUR ASSISTS Burns - THREE assists Raanta - was okay, but he just needs to be okay … Carolina didn’t allow a shot on goal for the final 17:10 of the game But top guys HAVE to be top guys . Aho has been on a tear. The stars stepped up when they needed to.    NC State loses Pop Tarts Bowl, 28-19 Had to go back and watch this … good game overall, but NC State couldn’t overcome the deficit Offense was mostly KC Conception, and Brennan Armstrong as a running QB: is the loss disappointing for NC State? Absolutely! But there's still a lot to be excited for...  The real winner - POP TARTS!!   SPORTS BETTING  So the deadline has passed for operators to apply for mobile sports betting by the ‘go-live’ date in the State of North Carolina … that deadline was Wednesday, but we know the 7 sports betting operators who have applied … FanDuel, BetMGM, DraftKings, Fanatics, bet365, Penn Sports Interactive (ESPN Bet), Underdog Sports Wagering. Hornets have a deal with bet365, Hurricanes with Fanatics, PGA Tour has FanDuel, and Quail Hollow is set with ESPN Bet Committee has 60 days to review the applications, and betting won’t be live by the time the Super Bowl on Feb. 11. Commission has until June 15th to launch, but can do it sooner. Let’s say it is 60 days - looking at beginning of March? Maybe March 2nd for NC State at UNC? Then right after that on March 4th you have Duke vs NC State … Duke vs UNC on March 9th ACC Tournament starting March 12th … THEN NCAA Tournament?!?!  State of North Carolina could risk losing A LOT of money

Why does it feel like Panthers fans don’t want Bryce to succeed? Is Bryce Young is a byproduct of all of the decisions made under the regime that is David Tepper’s ownership. Is it years of frustration with Tepper, and now Bryce is the face of it … ?? Bryce Young is the poster child of all of the decisions over the last five seasons of David Tepper. Got rid of Cam after 2019, and Rivera, which led to Matt Rhule and Teddy Bridgewater in 2020 … wanted an upgrade, so it was the trade for Darnold in 2021 that sent a 2021 6th-round pick, 2022 2nd-round pick, and 2022 4th-round pick to the Jets … well THAT wasn’t good enough, so they made ANOTHER trade … this time a 2022 4th-round pick and 2023 3rd-round pick to move up into the 3rd-round of the 2022 draft to draft Matt Corrall out of Ole Miss … AND traded a 2024 5th-round pick to Cleveland for Baker Mayfield … None of that was good enough, so they traded away a 2023 1st-round, 2023 2nd-round, 2024 1st, 2025 2nd, AND DJ Moore to get Bryce Young

Buffalo - even though you just blew out the team ahead of you, and you’re only 8-6, but you’ve been good lately! Baltimore Ravens - yeah, tied for best record in the NFL, but your QB hasn’t gotten the job done ever in the playoffs, so you’re not worthy Eagles - their QB was sick in their last game Miami - We get it, you have the 2nd best record in the AFC, but do you actually have a quality win? Detroit - because you’re Detroit

No. 21 Duke vs No. 10 Baylor: Game played at MSG, so home game for Duke?  What I like: their ball movement, and they’re doing a lot of it without Tyrese Proctor, who’s been out since the loss to GA Tech - he just started getting back to practice about a week ago, but who knows when he’ll return from an ankle injury - but their ability to move the ball offensively to generate open shots is impressive  Something to keep an eye on: Low post defense - Christian Reeves has been out, and Ryan Young hasn’t been getting a lot of minutes off the bench, so it’s been Filipowski as the post defender along with Mark Mitchell - how long is that sustainable?    NC State vs St. Louis: game at PNC, so home game for NC State? What I like: guard depth - DJ Horne, Jayden Taylor, Casey Morsell, Dennis Parker Jr., Michael O’Connell, throw MJ Rice & Kam Woods into the mix - there are a lot of guys to work into the mix in the back court for Kevin Keatts, which allows them to play with a lot of speed & pressure throughout the court Something to keep an eye on: Can they get more from the low post? DJ Burns averaging over 13 pts/game, and actually leads the team in assists with 28 overall this year, but Mo Diarra has been a little banged up and is a rim protector and rebounder, and Ben Middlebrooks hasn’t provided as much as expected   No. 11 UNC vs No. 7 Oklahoma: Game played at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, so home game for UNC? Third straight game vs. a ranked opponent on a neutral floor for Carolina What I like: RJ Davis, Harrison Ingram, Bacot - those three for the most part this season have been getting the job done; has there been a hiccup (Bacot vs Kentucky) - sure; but those three overall have been providing scoring night in and night out … RJ Davis is at the top, or near the top, of the ACC in scoring at 21.6/game, Ingram is shooting over 43% from three while also third on the team in assists, third in pts/game, and 2nd in rebounds, and Bacot is double-double player just about every night Something to keep an eye on: secondary scoring - Cormac Ryan was in an slump, but had 20 points against Kentucky; Elliot Cadeu leads the team in assists as a freshman with 40 this year, but still waiting for him to have that big scoring output … this team will need secondary scoring

Florida State University is still upset and they're still pointing fingers...  Grant of Rights - locked in Exit fee - $120 million During a board of trustees meeting in August, Florida State president Richard McCullough made it clear the school would "very seriously" consider leaving the league if things did not change. Any ACC school that wants to leave the conference would have to challenge the grant of rights to be able to get out before joining another league. The grant of rights, which runs through 2036, gives the ACC control over media rights for its member schools -- including the broadcast of games in all sports. In addition, any school that wants to leave the ACC would have to pay an exit fee of three times the league's operating budget, or roughly $120 million.

Will Brinson, CBS Sports, on why the Bills are struggling so much and other NFL reviews from the weekend. The Minnesota Vikings are without Kirk Cousins, they bring Josh Dobbs in who doesn’t know a ton of plays but he’s now gone 2-0 since he started.

Erroll Reese and Phil Ford on the breaking news of Walter’s passing and their relationship with him. Who was Walter to UNC? What was he like behind the scenes?   CHAPEL HILL – Walter Davis, an all-star at the University of North Carolina and in the NBA, a member of the United States gold-medal winning Olympic basketball team in 1976 and uncle of UNC head coach Hubert Davis, passed away this morning of natural causes while visiting family in Charlotte, N.C. Davis (69) was one of the best shooters in Carolina basketball history. A member of the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame, the Pineville, N.C., native was a two-time All-ACC honoree in 1976 and as a senior in 1977, when he led the Tar Heels to an ACC Tournament title and appearance in the NCAA championship game. He scored 1,863 points, grabbed 670 rebounds and had 409 assists playing for head coach Dean Smith. This season is the 50th anniversary of Davis’s 25-foot shot at the buzzer against Duke that capped an eight-point comeback in the final 17 seconds of regulation to send the game to overtime, where the Tar Heels won. It is one of the most iconic moments in college basketball and, even as a freshman, cemented his place in Carolina Basketball history.   Davis won NBA Rookie-of-the-Year honors with the Phoenix Suns in 1978. He was a five-time NBA All-Star and the Suns retired his No. 6.   STEVE KIRSCHNER University of North Carolina Senior Associate A.D. for Sports Information & Media Relations

Right now, they can’t. -Here’s where we are with this team….  -Tepper still too impetuous, undisciplined, involved in the football. -Scott Fitterer has not yet proven to be the talent evaluator that can make the chicken salad -Frank Reich has been disappointing, so far.

Chip breaks down which teams he believes are actually tough teams to beat, which ones are deceptively tough because of their opponents, and which ones are just bad. Adam says that THESE teams would be better than Michigan and Georgia, just based off of their wins thus far, so should this be reflected on the AP Poll? What was the most critical decision at the Ryder Cup?

The Panthers showed some signs of progress, but it was still a loss in a very winnable game to the Vikings, 21-13… Duke blew their chance at the college football playoff with a 21-14 loss to Notre Dame and got their QB hurt in the process. NC State’s season is a shambles after another anemic offensive performance in a 13-10 Friday night loss to Louisville. The United States Ryder Cup team got their pants beat by a significantly better European team, 16 ½ to 11 ½ and the loss may end up being the least of the issues. And, the Major League Baseball playoffs begin tomorrow night with the Braves and Orioles as the top two seeds but having to sit around until Saturday before they jump start their postseason.

Carolina Hurricanes preseason is right around the corner!  -Best blue line in the sport -Same 3-headed goalie monster -Grittiness in Michael Bunting -Get the feeling that we’re going to see a ferocious Svechnikov. Also, the war of words between UNC and the NCAA has been taken up a notch…   Mack Brown was the most pointed….  "the NCAA has failed Tez and his family and I’ve lost all faith in its ability to lead and govern our sport. They’ve messed so many things up as it relates to college football, and now their failures have negatively impacted the life of one of our own. SHAME ON YOU, NCAA….." Now the NCAA released a statement, too:  "The NCAA is aware of violent – and possibly criminal – threats recently directed at committee members involved in regulatory decisions. The national office is coordinating with law enforcement and will continue to do whatever possible to support the volunteers who serve on these committees.   The DI Board is troubled by the public remarks made last week by some of the University of North Carolina leadership. Those comments directly contradict what we and our fellow Division I members and coaches called for vociferously – including UNC's own football coach. We are a membership organization, and rather than pursue a public relations campaign that can contribute to a charged environment for our peers who volunteer on committees, we encourage members to use established and agreed upon procedures to voice concerns and propose and adopt rule or policy changes if they are dissatisfied."    Did the NCAA go a little too far?     Here’s something else that was driving Adam nuts yesterday…. The end of the UNC-App State series and Mack Brown’s comments about how great they are – were – for football in North Carolina, but that those games are going away because…..no upside…???   What's the real reason Mack, scared to lose - so don’t play?
