Matt Brown of the excellent Extra Points newsletter joins Justin and Painter to talk about all the off-the-field matters that are important to Auburn and the rest of college athletics.

The guys discuss Mark Emmert’s impending departure and who might make sense as the future president of the NCAA (besides Painter). Then it’s a discussion of NIL, collectives and what might be changing when it comes to college athletes getting paid. They also talk about conference realignment and when Texas and Oklahoma might be joining Auburn in the SEC.

Towards the end of the episode, Matt shares some insight on what you probably clicked on this podcast to hear about — the EA Sports College Football video game. He shares a few #scoops about the game and what you might see next summer.
