On episode 86, the guys talk about Kerryon Johnson’s placement in the Heisman Trophy voting, his thought process for returning next year, Auburn’s chances to be elite in 2018, and some Auburn basketball.

Auburn football podcast: Kerryon Johnson got snubbed in Heisman voting

Here are time marks to help you navigate the podcast:

  • Start of the show: Blackerby and Ferguson discuss the Heisman Trophy voting from Saturday night. Though the guys do not disagree with the top three, Johnson’s finish seemed disrespectful and not well thought-out. With running backs finishing ahead of him that were clearly not as special or as talented this season, it gives Auburn fans the right to be upset with the results.
  • 8-minute mark: Blackerby put himself in the shoes of a running back who is debating going pro or returning to school. He shares what Johnson is probably looking at when he thinks about returning to play for the Tigers next year.
  • 11- minute mark: The Auburn passing attack could be a few months away from being deadly. If quarterback Jarrett Stidham returns like many are saying he will, he will be reunited with all of his pass-catching options from this year in 2018.
  • 19-minute mark: With the rumblings of Jeff Holland potentially staying for another season at Auburn, the guys talk about what the defensive front could look like in 2018.
  • End of the show: The experts spend a few minutes talking about Auburn basketball. The Tigers defeated a decent UAB team Saturday without three top players.
