Justin and Painter open the show with the news of Auburn reportedly zeroing in on Mississippi State athletic director John Cohen. They discuss why Auburn might be going in that direction, what Cohen could bring to the table and how it can be hard to determine what makes a good or bad hire in college sports administration.

Then the discussion switches over to Auburn’s 41-27 loss to Arkansas, which snapped a six-game winning streak in the series. Bryan Harsin and the players don’t seem to have any answers for what’s going on, and neither do the hosts of this podcast. It’s a whole lot of the same.

Fortunately, the episode ends with some talk about Auburn basketball ahead of its exhibition against UAH on Wednesday night. The guys talk about how the lineup and rotation could be pretty unpredictable early and what they’re specifically wanting to see from the Tigers in their first action in front of fans.
