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

0:08 – Hayes gives the rundown.

1:12 – Do fans associate good defense with good coaching more than they do good offense? 

3:37 – WHY AREN’T WE MARKETING THE ACC BETTER!?!??!?! (Also known as: what the heck is K talking about?)

11:12 – Leonard Hamilton? Too low key? Or just the right approach for FSU? (Sadly, not a single Hamsterdam reference in this segment.)

18:33 – Time for Jim to gush about T.J. Warren. Apparently this puts him at odds with David Glenn. 

24:46 – This leads into All-ACC talk, and Jim’s thoughts on his most recent ballot snapshot. It’s okay to really like Malcolm Brogdon now, too. 

28:46 – Rivalry Week! Duke-UNC! Clemson-Notre Dame!


41:07 – Hayes is feeling the pressure to produce great musical selections each week. Will he crack? Also, “Confessions of a Call Screener.”

46:40 – Duke-UNC … Jim’s not really feeling it right now. (Sadly, this part was recorded before the manager’s game brawl.) They do talk about the matchup, particularly Parker vs. McAdoo. 

51:10 – T.J. “The Truth” Warren? Which NBA player’s game matches up closely with Warren’s? 

54:00 – Hayes signs off … and they keep talking. Hayes debates live-tweeting Duke-UNC games on ESPN Classic. Then word breaks about the student manager game brawl.
