A lot of folks, myself included, grew up watching Carolina games with the TV turned down and Woody Durham’s radio call turned up. So even before Durham’s retirement was reported this week, I’d been thinking about the inauthenticity of games called by anyone but the 40-year voice of the Tar Heels. Faced with that inevitability, I found this  anecdote (from Deadspin) to be pretty awesome:

The volume was turned off.
