Episode details

This premium episode of the podcast has been unlocked for anyone to listen for free.

Returning champion Nicole Auerbach of The Athletic joins Justin and Painter to give her insight on the Big Ten’s jarring additions of USC and UCLA and what Auburn’s neighborhood of the SEC might do next. They talk about the lack of big-picture leadership in college football, how everyone is basically looking out for themselves and why athletes and fans might be the biggest losers of this new era.

In the second half of the episode — after a discussion of picking up golf as a worthwhile hobby — Justin and Painter look at the SEC’s next steps, Auburn football’s addition of Karmello English, Jabari Smith’s trash talking of the Houston Astros mascot and the levels of insanity for several SEC West fan bases.
