Aubserver Mailbag 31: The New Normal
This week: Transfer talk, the future at kicker, rules, Mount Rushmore, Sharife Cooper, Bryan Harsin's golf game, WCW and condiments

There will be a time this offseason where I fear that we don’t have much to talk about in this mailbag.
This is not that week.
The departures of five Auburn football players into the transfer portal since the last mailbag was posted dominated the online chatter and the incoming questions over the last few days. There’s plenty to discuss here, whether it’s the reaction to the transfers or what Auburn will do next.
This week, we also tackle questions about kickers (!), penalty reform, Sharife Cooper’s NBA Draft stock, assorted belts and a lot more. We close with one of the most bizarre questions I’ve ever received.
Do you see the players transferring out as a concern, or just as something to be expected with a new staff, the transfer rule, and the depth chart finally starting to take shape?
Players transferring out: A) one year blip with new rule and Auburn coaching change B) the new normal for every team in college football every year?
