Here are a few time stamps to note from their conversation earlier this week.

0:50 - Several ACC schools have nearly filled their 2014 classes. Is this a good thing? Or is it a sign of quantity instead of quality?

4:04 - Jim and Paul discuss Dave Doeren’s #PACK14, and how the new head coach is taking advantage of the school’s coaching change on the recruiting trail.

7:02 - How have Mike London and UVa., despite a difficult 2012, landed two of the top recruits in the Class of 2014?

10:50 - Duke’s class will be small, but it has the potential to be the Blue Devils' best recruiting class they have had under David Cutcliffe. Paul is really high on their newest quarterback commit, Nicodem Pierre.

14:35 - Strelow may not be the biggest fan of Paul Johnson’s recruiting efforts at Georgia Tech, but he likes one of the Yellow Jackets' recent commitments: running back , who’s out of South Carolina.

17:01 - Do you wanna be a DUDE, bro? Is it actually even a good thing to #BeADude? The guys examine Steve Addazio’s newest social media-based recruiting tactic.

19:00 - Which ACC schools look best on the recruiting path for 2014, so far?

21:43 - Strelow on the ACC’s recruiting efforts, as a whole: “As rough as their reputation is, I guess, nationally, I think they’re doing pretty doggone well.”

22:43 - Why do West Coast recruits, generally, commit later in the process than their Southeastern peers?

25:02 - Finally, where are we in this recruiting cycle? When can we expect things to slow down?
