Episode details

Justin and Painter — who is *not* the PA announcer for the Birmingham Barons, by the way — discuss Auburn football’s hire of former Dallas Cowboys scout Drew Fabianich as its general manager and director of scouting and development. The guys look at the move from both sides and what kind of impact this new position could have on the Tigers’ longterm future.

Then it’s a switch to the release of the latest Blue-Chip Ratio and how Auburn has made the cut once again, but the wiggle room is shrinking. What do the Tigers have to do to maintain their spot as one of college football’s top 15 or so recruiters, and how do they compete against the insane talent stockpiles at several SEC rivals?

The guys also talk about the Summer League showings for Jabari Smith, Sharife Cooper and JT Thor before previewing Auburn’s turn at SEC Media Days in Atlanta later this week.
