Episode 186: Making a Comeback
Justin and Painter take a look at Auburn football's representation on the Athlon All-SEC teams and how it affects the outlook of the 2022 season as a whole for Bryan Harsin's team.
As Painter wonders if the goatee is making a comeback in contemporary life, Justin takes the start of preview magazine season in college football to ask a question — is Auburn’s 2022 roster being undervalued, considering its returning star power, or are the major doubts in the passing game that big of a deal?
The bulk of this episode is a discussion of Auburn’s nine All-SEC picks in the new Athlon preview and what it would take for the Tigers to overcome their question marks at quarterback and wide receiver.
The episode opens with some baseball chatter — including a breakdown of antagonistic fan bases in the SEC in light of Tennessee’s Super Regional exit — and closes with a look at Jabari Smith’s growing odds to become the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming NBA Draft.
