Episode details

Justin and Painter open the show with a big-picture look at where Auburn basketball stands with seven games left in the regular season. They explain why the Tigers are firmly in the NCAA Tournament picture and break down some of the areas where Auburn can turn it around down the stretch.

Then they switch over to a preview of Auburn’s massive home matchup against Alabama. What can the Tigers learn from the teams that have beaten the red-hot Crimson Tide — or at least come close to pulling off upsets? And which player needs to have the biggest game in order for Auburn to come out with a monster win?

The episode ends with some chatter about Texas and Oklahoma joining the SEC in 2024 and which third permanent rival would suit Auburn the best in future schedules. They also discuss the Super Bowl this Sunday and look back at a wild week in the NBA.
