Episode details

Justin and Painter discuss the merits of marching bands, the harmonica, relearning the trombone, the smaller buttons on Rock Band guitar controllers and #TheShirt.

In more pressing matters, the guys recap what they learned from Auburn basketball’s three-game tour in Israel — opening with two blowout victories and closing with a hard-fought loss to the senior national team. Which players stood out the most? How much of this can be carried into the regular season? And why was K.D. Johnson screaming at that basketball?

Then it’s a move over to the first weekend of Auburn football fall camp, including updates on a pair of true freshmen who are making serious waves and a breakdown of what could realistically be expected from a completely retooled passing attack. There’s also a discussion of SEC West schedules and why Mike Leach teams can get weird in Year 3.
