Aubserver Mailbag 53: What does Auburn need to do to finish with a successful Year 1?

This week: Bo Nix, roster analysis, recruiting, the transfer portal, special teams, K.D. Johnson, Allen Flanigan, chili, Homefield and Full Gear

Am I the only one who thinks it’s utterly wild that there are just three weeks left in the college football regular season?

Saturday will mark Auburn’s 10th game under Bryan Harsin. I remember watching the first spring open practice like it was yesterday. The summer was a blur, and this entire football season has been that way, too. Pretty soon I’m gonna look up and be shocked that Auburn is already playing SEC basketball games.

Perhaps it’s that rapidly approaching finality of the 2021 season, mixed with the start of a basketball season that will grab most Auburn fans’ attentions, that created the tone of this week’s mailbag. The football questions were mostly big-picture ones, while we had the most basketball questions we’ve had in a while.

Also, there are questions about chili, Homefield Apparel, AEW and loud music in here. Gotta give the people what they want.

Let’s go.
