Episode details

Inspired by a couple of recent hit movies, Justin and Painter spend this episode examining some alternate universes from recent Auburn football and basketball history.

Topics include: What if Auburn decided to hire Kirby Smart instead of Gus Malzahn in 2013? What would have happened if LSU had won the “Six Kicks” game in 2016? How far would the Tigers have gone if they would’ve avoided those two late fumbles against Texas A&M in 2014? And what if Auburn just left the SEC?

On the hardwood, the guys discuss a few spinoff scenarios from the Final Four run in 2019 and somehow come to the conclusion that the Tony Barbee hire was ultimately a good thing in the long run for Auburn basketball. (Yeah, this episode gets crazy.) Feel free to send in your own alternate universe theories!
