Here are a few time stamps to note from their conversation earlier this week:
0:08 - Hayes gives the rundown.
0:58 - Finally, the national title returns to its rightful place! Jim and Hayes give their impressions from the epic championship game. They conclude that FSU can win close games now. And Hayes now thinks Jameis Winston is a credible QB.
7:58- So apparently some FSU fans overreacted juuuust a bit when the Noles fell behind 21-3. Should the next ACC season be one long show of appreciation for the Noles? And did Jim and Hayes get misty-eyed watching the rest of the league rally behind FSU? Plus they explore the Red Lightning cultural phenomenon.
15:24 - This portion of the podcast was recorded during the UNC-Wake game. Jim's a little distracted. But is IN STUDIO!!! So there's that.
17:32 - Jim and Hayes discuss how they handle being approached for gambling advice. Then the talk turns to last weekend. Jim continues to wax nostalgic for Clemson's Orange Bowl win. And how do we view the Tigers' now?
28:09 - Jim is very, very bullish on Sammy Watkins' pro potential.
31:13 - Oh and we need to talk Duke-Texas A&M a little. NO MORAL VICTORIES!!!??!? PUT CUTCLIFFE ON NOTICE!!??!! Or ... maybe not.
36:18 - A forced transition leads us into ACC hoops. #NEWSCHOOLUPDATE!!! With some #NEWSCHOOLLOVE!!!! And let's microanalyze Duke's flaws too, why don't we? And UVa-FSU? Sooo confused. Then Jim dares to criticize Tony Bennett, but in a loving way. BC? There's not much to love there.
