Episode details

Justin, Painter and Dan discuss Payton Thorne’s decision to transfer to Auburn and what he’ll bring to the Tigers’ quarterback room. Painter talks about the positive direction for the program this offseason. Justin shares some of his stat findings. And Dan has several historical Auburn quarterback comparisons for Thorne.

The guys also talk about Caleb Burton’s signing over the weekend and how he’s a big upside pick in a wide receiver group that needed an infusion of talent. They look at Burton’s recruiting pedigree and discuss whether 5-foot-11 is actually “short” in football.

Towards the end of the episode, the guys look at Matthew Cleveland’s decision to transfer to Miami and where Bruce Pearl’s program might go next in a continuing roster transformation. They also shout out the big weekend the Tigers had in both softball and baseball.
