Road Trippin’: Ready to broadcast live from ACC Football Kickoff

Radio show and podcast ready to hit the road

ACC Football Kickoff is set for July 25-26 in Pinehurst, North Carolina.

The No 2-Minute Warning Radio show and podcast is getting ready to pack up and head down to Pinehurst, North Carolina to bring you an up close view from the ACC Football Kickoff.

I am still trying to sort through some of the minor details but the plan is to broadcast a live show on Blog Talk Radio show from the ACC Football Kickoff and share any interviews or audio by way of the podcast. It should be a fun time. Last year  I was only on hand to get to hear from and ask questions to the coaches of the ACC, as well as BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock, when I was not scarfing down a delicious Chick-fil-A spicy chicken sandwich. This year the plan is to get down there a day earlier to get a chance to talk to some of the players on hand representing the ACC’s various schools.

Here is a look at the players that will be in North Carolina next week, courtesy of the ACC:
