Episode 211: "I Never Say 'A Win is a Win'" [San Jose State Game Review]
Justin and Painter break down Auburn football's very underwhelming 24-16 win over San Jose State, from an ugly start on both sides to what changed in the second half.
This week’s podcast title comes directly from Auburn head coach Bryan Harsin in the wake of the Tigers’ very underwhelming 24-16 victory over San Jose State in Week 2.
Justin and Painter recap the lows and the very few highs of Auburn’s win, including a rough start on offense, a problematic pass defense, T.J. Finley’s post-interception rebound and the biggest thing that kept the Tigers from falling victim to Blood Week.
The guys break down what they’ve seen from Auburn through two paycheck games and what has to change — quickly — for the upcoming matchup against Penn State and the start of SEC play. They also take a look at what happened elsewhere in college football. (Note: This episode was recorded shortly before Nebraska announced it had fired Scott Frost.)
