Here are time marks to help you navigate the podcast:

  • Start of the show: Ferguson talks about the trip to Arkansas and hole-in-the-wall Italian places in the middle of Arkansas. They guys also discussed the play calling and the creative side of the offense.
  • 6-minute mark: The experts talk about the third quarter and question if the Auburn coaching staff would run a similar offense if they were playing a tougher team like Texas A&M or Alabama. They agree that Gus Malzahn should, but do not know if he would. They also discuss the benefit of calling trick plays when Auburn was up by multiple scores.
  • 11-minute mark: The impact of Kyle Davis’ dismissal did not seem evident in the passing game on Saturday. Blackerby and Ferguson talk about what happened and who received the benefit of gaining more targets and more production.
  • 20-minute mark: The experts discuss the off week, what Auburn needs to do, and what they plan to do with the bye week before taking on Texas A&M.
