Finally back from the ACC Football Kickoff in Pinehurst, N.C., I sat down with Adam Aizer and J. Darin Darst to rehash some of the lessons we learned, best stories from the event, and take some time to preview the upcoming season in the ACC. From my experience playing Pinehurst No. 4 with Maryland quarterback Danny O'Brien to an introduction to "Jimbo-isms," we peel back the curtain on a conference in transition.
10 of the 12 teams in the conference have undergone a coaching change since 2007, and now the conference seeks to break through on the national stage. Adam, Darin, and I discuss how important non-conference matchups are for that breakthrough, and identify the most important showdown on the 2011 schedule.
