If you somehow missed all of the excitement from this past weekend, Mack Brown’s first return game with the Tar Heels resulted in a 24-20 victory over the South Carolina Gamecocks. It was the team’s first victory in an opener against a Power Five team since 1997, when...well...Mack Brown was here.

To celebrate, Hosts Tanya Bondurant (@tanyabondurant) and Brandon Anderson (@thbbrandon) are back for another episode of What in Tar Nation, and discuss the exciting win in Charlotte. Topics discussed include:

  • Sam Howell proving that he deserved the quarterback job
  • Jay Bateman’s surprisingly good defense
  • Best of and worst of the game
  • Seeing the clock tower lit up in person, championship belts, and Mack Brown’s suspect dance moves
