Here are a few time stamps to note from their Monday evening conversation:
0:08 - Hayes gives the rundown.
1:02 - Hayes wants to talk Clemson-FSU and ... Clemson-FSU. And nothing else. How nervous were you when BC led Clemson in the fourth quarter?
4:00 - Jim wants you to know that he was prominently quoted in a USA Today article about Clemson-FSU. No, seriously. Jim also references the FSU-Clemson "Puntrooskie" game. Hayes doesn't remember it. Jim dies a little inside.
7:17 - Hayes waxes nostalgic about the UNC-FSU game in 1997. Then they talk more about ... wait for it ... Clemson-FSU!!
12:32 - Clemson and FSU are really good! So the ACC is now really good, right!!??!!!? And will the ACC have another game of the century ... in three weeks?
16:09 - Jim confronts the painful truth that Georgia Tech isn't nearly as good as he thought Paul Johnson's squad would be.
18:08 - Who's the best QB in the ACC not on an undefeated team? Jim and Hayes gush over Cutcliffe. Jim creates a fictional QB named "Thad Lee."
20:07 - It's time to talk about the bottom of the ACC! Also known as, "It's time to talk about ACC football in North Carolina!"
24:45 - Jim questions Steve Addazio's late-game dudeness. This is followed by wonky poker-football strategy talk.
33:41 - Are late-game clock situations the one time when fans really DO know was much as coaches?
39:00 - They squeeze in a little Operation Basketball talk at the end.
