Episode details

Justin and Painter open the show with a brief discussion of Wilky Denaud, the best names in Auburn history and the ever-changing Mississippi Phenomena.

Then friend of the newsletter Richard Johnson (Sports Illustrated! Split Zone Duo! The SEC Network!) makes his Observer podcast debut to talk all things Bryan Harsin and the 2022 Auburn Tigers. What does he think of Zach Calzada? What could make Auburn’s defense potentially great? And is Tank Bigsby ready to be “that dude”?

The guys also discuss what to expect from the rest of the SEC this fall, including a classically dominant Alabama, a Florida team in transition and a Kentucky squad that might be for real. (We don’t know what to expect from LSU. No one does.)
