Episode details

Justin and Painter open the show with a surprisingly in-depth discussion on the merits of LinkedIn and a pitch to open a bowling alley. Then, in much more serious conversation, they talk about new Auburn president Chris Roberts and the future of Allen Greene as the university’s athletic director.

The main topic of this episode is the potential end of divisions in SEC football with the arrival of Texas and Oklahoma and what the league should do with their scheduling format. If the SEC goes with a 3-6-6 rotation, who should be Auburn’s third permanent rival with Alabama and Georgia?

The episode closes with a deeper dive into Jabari Smith’s two most likely NBA destinations following the draft lottery — the potential team up with Chuma Okeke in Orlando or the exciting young core in Oklahoma City.
