Episode details

Justin, Dan and Painter open the show by discussing Auburn’s decision to name Payton Thorne as the new starting quarterback. They talk about the timing of the move, why Thorne stayed in front the whole way and what Robby Ashford and Holden Geriner can still do for the Tigers in 2023.

Then Justin unloads the notebook from a long practice viewing window on Thursday. Painter wants to talk about the wide receivers. Dan is curious about the running back rotation. Rivaldo Fairweather is frequently mentioned.
