Episode details

Justin and Painter open the show by putting a bow on Auburn baseball’s memorable postseason and discussing the impressive progress Butch Thompson has made with the Tigers.

Then it’s a switch over to the main topic — Auburn’s historic showing in the 2022 NBA Draft. They talk Jabari Smith surprisingly going No. 3 overall to the Houston Rockets and what exactly happened with the Orlando Magic and the Oklahoma City Thunder, plus Walker Kessler’s intriguing fit with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The guys close with a look at the last time Auburn football won double-digit games in back-to-back seasons and how that compares to the rest of the SEC. Can the Tigers get back there in the near future, even with the growing challenges on the shifting schedule?
