Episode 146: Coronation
Justin and Painter discuss all the angles of Auburn basketball's 80-71 win over Kentucky, plus the Tigers' football staff changes on defense.
Justin and Painter recap Auburn basketball’s 80-71 win over Kentucky. They open by discussing students camping out overnight for the game, the unbridled confidence of a fan base on social media and the big-picture implications for a program that is now firmly in the driver’s seat for both the SEC title and a landmark No. 1 ranking.
Then it’s a breakdown of the actual game — the Tigers’ team effort to neutralize Oscar Tshiebwe, Walker Kessler and Jabari Smith’s clutch performances, the impact of the TyTy Washington injury and the strength in numbers showcase from Auburn’s roster. After that, it’s a brief lookahead to Tuesday’s road trip to Missouri.
The episode closes with a rundown of Auburn football’s staff changes on defense, headlined by Jeff Schmedding’s promotion and the hires of two new assistants.
