Episode details

Justin, Painter and Dan break down what they saw from Auburn’s 59-14 season-opening win over UMass.

The guys talk about how impressive it was for Auburn to cover the spread on a day when plenty of first-year coaches — and other clear-cut favorites — struggled. They look at Robby Ashford and Payton Thorne playing off of each other in their first game together, how effective the Tigers were at rotating pretty much everybody on both sides of the ball and the areas of concern that still very much remain.

They also pick their winners for the 5-star review contest on Apple Podcast, take a quick run through the rest of the first big Saturday in college football and play “Free Bird.”
