Episode 194: The Right Temperature

It’s an episode about takes, hot and not-so-hot: the 2013 offense, Jabari Smith and Walker Kessler's first days in the NBA, the 2022 secondary and preseason predictions.

Justin Ferguson and Painter Sharpless take you inside the stats, strategies and stories of Auburn football and basketball on The Auburn Observer Podcast.
Episode details

Justin and Painter open the show by looking back at the Nick Marshall-led 2013 squad and the lethal simplicity of the Tigers’ offense. They shout out the USFL, CFL and any other league that will pay players for being good at football — including the college game.

Then it’s a look to Jabari Smith’s first weekend in the NBA Summer League in Vegas and why any hot takes about him are extremely premature. They also discuss Walker Kessler’s official addition to the Utah Jazz roster and why it could end up being a great spot for him to start his career.

The back half of the show centers on Auburn football — first on a secondary that might be stronger than you think in 2022, then on the big-picture outlook for the Tigers ahead of SEC Media Days in Atlanta next week. What’s the right temperature for the program heading into the fall?
