Ep. 34 - Playing JV basketball for the UNC Tarheels

UNC basketball program just won its sixth national championship and its third one under Roy Williams. But before Roy was head coach, for 8 years he was an assistant coach under Dean Smith and during that time he was head coach of the UNC JV Mens basketball team.

Ep. 10 - Master's Recap, NBA playoff preview and MLB check-in

Justin Spieth totally, completely and utterly collapsed in the final round at The Masters. Dude blew a five-shot lead in nine holes. Check that - three holes. That's a gag, right? Well, not necessarily. In this episode of the Blooperman Podcast, Mike bucks the national piling on with a defense of Spieth's shocking (we can all agree it was shocking, right?) defeat.
