Episode 229: Defense Wins Weekends [Texas A&M Football + USF Basketball Review]
Justin and Painter break down a weekend for defense-first victories on the Plains — football’s 13-10 win over Texas A&M and basketball’s 67-59 win over USF.
Justin and Painter break down a weekend for defense-first victories on the Plains — Auburn football’s 13-10 win over Texas A&M and Auburn basketball’s 67-59 win over USF — and the unveiling of the new football performance center.
The guys talk about how the Tigers turned back the clock in a night that celebrated Cadillac Williams and nodded to the undefeated 2004 season. They discuss how Auburn’s defense was able to dominate Jimbo Fisher’s Texas A&M offense, how the offense did just enough with its explosive running game to win and how special teams helped after they hurt a week ago.
Then it’s a switch over to basketball, where Bruce Pearl’s team used elite defense and a second-half surge to put away USF for a second straight season. Justin and Painter talk about how Auburn’s offense has a lot of work to do, why Allen Flanigan and Wendell Green Jr.’s big games were huge and what can be expected from the Tigers in the Winthrop game Tuesday night.
