Episode 387: Animals Swinging Golf Clubs (feat. Matt Cohen)

Matt Cohen of AL.com joins Justin and Dan to share his insight on Auburn men’s golf winning the national title and the Nike deal.

Matt Cohen of AL.com makes his first and last appearance on the Observer podcast. He joins Justin and Dan to talk about Auburn men’s golf winning the national championship and his insight from John Cohen (no relation) on the Nike deal.

Matt breaks down why the Tigers were so dominant on the links this season, what makes Jackson Koivun a golfing machine and how Nick Clinard built Auburn into a real force in the sport. He also discusses with the guys why the women’s golf program has a chance to make similar noise in the near future.

After some more Year of Powder Blue talk, Matt shares what he learned from Auburn’s athletic director on the move to Nike — the background, the money and the motivations. The episode ends with a tribute to Old Bay seasoning and Matt’s go-to order from CAVA.
