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!
33:14 – ACC LAX! GREATEST CONFERENCE EVERRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!
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.
