Ingram Smith and myself return with another excellent podcast. We quickly touch on the Notre Dame-ACC thing, before moving on to the takeaways from the 52-0 blowout of Wake Forest.
But we all know the real story this week: Clemson. How confident should FSU fans be? Can Florida State's vaunted defense stop one of the best offenses in the country? Is there another defense nationally you'd rather have to face off against Clemson's offense? What are the key match-ups there?
And should the focus even be on that side of the ball? What about FSU's offense (good, not great) v. Clemson's defense (average?, we think)? Shouldn't more of the focus be paid to that side of the ball? What will Florida State's strategy be to move the ball against Clemson? Will they use a decided pace? Which players could surprise?
Finally, we discuss the rivalry that if FSU-Clemson. Is it finally time to admit that Clemson is FSU's No. 2 rival? We discuss.

We apologize for this getting up a bit late, but hope that you can give it a listen on your drive to Tallahassee or to kill time at work Friday.
