Argyle Audio | End of Exams Special (ft. C Jackson Cowart and Jeremy Vernon)
Argyle Audio meets up one last time at the end of the fall semester, with two special guests. Editor Sam Doughton is joined by former Argyle EIC C Jackson Cowart and former DTH assistant sports editor (and occasional Argyle contributor) Jeremy Vernon to break down some of the biggest news in Tar Heel sports, and to remember the last time UNC and Gonzaga played basketball.
The trio starts discussing their reaction to Larry Fedora's firing (2:15) and the hiring of Mack Brown (7:15), before assessing Brown's initial success on the recruiting trail and hiring his assistants (10:40), including Jeremy's thoughts on UNC's chances on flipping Sam Howell (15:45), before ending with their favorite moments from the Fedora Era (22:15).
They then explore how the controversy of Silent Sam took a turn toward UNC athletics this past week, and how both current and former student-athletes are speaking out against the statue in multiple open letters (28:20).
Finally, Jeremy and Jackson discuss their memories covering UNC's national championship win over Gonzaga in 2017 while working for the Daily Tar Heel (47:00), filled in between with discussion of how UNC fans perceive Gonzaga vs Villanova (59:20), fun moments behind the scenes of covering the tournament (1:03:45) and a crash course for Jackson on if UNC has a chance at the title this season (1:12:30).
Sam Doughton and Kirk Meyer come to you from the stands at Kenan Stadium to breaking down the Larry Fedora firing, the Mack Brown hiring, and the future for UNC football. They also discuss women's soccer win over UCLA to go to the College Cup.
