"If it get's one thing right, that's critically important," said Duke football coach David Cutcliffe.

He, of all people should know. You may remember Duke was on the short end of a mind-boggling, eight-lateral, last-second loss to Miami last season that eventually resulted in the suspension of the on-field officiating crew as well as the replay official and communicator for two full games.

Centralized replay, a team set up in Greensboro to review calls, was one of the main points of conversation. Florida State coach also spoke of the merits of replay. Watch both coaches' comments in the video.
