When you don't have a baseball team, and your NBA team isn't playing deep into the postseason, the late spring, and early summer months can be lean for a sports radio host, or even a sports columnist. Except in Charlotte, where there always seems to be something worth writing, or talking about, going on. This week hasn't been any different, with the Panthers taking the field for the start of OTAs, the 65th running of the Coca-Cola 600 is this Sunday, and that's right, Hornets guard LaMelo Ball is in the news again, this time facing a lawsuit, after allegedly running over an 11 year old's foot.

Last week, the ACC held its annual spring meetings at Amelia Island, with both football and basketball entrenched in their respective off-seasons. There was a lot to talk about, considering that two schools, Clemson and Florida State are actively suing the league, as they are seeking an exit from the conference, which overshadows the league not getting the respect they want on the playing field, after FSU was left out of the College Football Playoff, and schools like Wake Forest and Pittsburgh were left out of the NCAA Tournament. 

This offseason, Panthers long snapper JJ Jansen has been joining the Mac & Bone Show each week for a segment the guys like to call SnapChats, where they discuss a lot of football as well as other big stories in sports and general. Friday’s edition was an exciting one as they guys got the opportunity […]

President of Football Ops and GM of the Carolina Panthers Dan Morgan has been busy over the last few months from making trades, signing big deals, and drafting players in a short time.

When Mike Hill left Florida for Charlotte, he was motivated to build one of the top athletic departments at the Group of 5 level, and after a long wait, combined with a lot of hard work, it appears his vision is coming to fruition. The men's basketball team finished third in the American this past season, they just hired an accomplished coach to guide the women's program, and after an uneven first season of the Biff Poggi era on the football field, Charlotte could contend for a bowl game in 2024. The icing on the cake happened over the weekend, as Charlotte's softball team won the American Conference tournament, clinching a spot in the NCAA Tournament. 

For the first time since the NFL Draft has been in the books, WFNZ got the opportunity to talk with new Panthers head coach Dave Canales about where his team is at. Canales stopped by with the Mac & Bone Show discussed in-depth the plan that he has for Bryce Young in his second offseason […]

With rookie minicamp underway this weekend not in Charlotte, but around the NFL, it's another sign that the 2024 off-season is in the books, and we're in the early stages of getting ready for the 2024 football season. The Panthers recently completed their draft, which has received uneven reviews from the local and national media, after Dan Morgan was aggressively trading back and forth, over the course of making 7 selections. Those 7 picks are on the field this weekend, learning Dave Canales's system, ahead of training camp which will open in late July.

In the modern NFL, rebuilds take 2-3 years, not 5-6 like they did in the old days. With that sense of urgency to win nowadays, teams are more willing than ever to move off a QB, no matter how much they invested around him, let alone draft him. After an up-and-down rookie season, with just two wins to his name, that's where Bryce Young finds himself in the mind of many Panther fans, who want to see drastic improvement from the former #1 overall pick, or else they desire the franchise to go in a different direction. How likely is that though? Only time will tell. 

The Panthers 2024 draft class is already nearly a week and a half old and takes about how it turned out are continuing to flow in. On Friday, a report came out that an unnamed executive in the league accused the team of “shopping hungry” in a conversation they had with Mike Sando of The […]
