Here are time marks to help you navigate the podcast:

  • Start of the show: Kayode Oladele, a 4-star defensive end from Florida, committed to the Tigers this weekend. Auburn continues to find success recruiting on the defensive front. The guys talk about when’s the earliest he could see the field for the Tigers.
  • 11:30 mark: The experts discuss the tight end position at Auburn. They start the conversation by talking about Luke Ford, the top guy at his position in this signing class. Auburn made the cut for his final five teams. The guys want to see a top tight end in this offense just to see how he would be used. It would be interesting to see if he’d line up as a tight end, or more as a slot receiver.
  • 23:40 mark: The guys talk about Auburn basketball. The Tigers earned a tough win against Middle Tennessee State this weekend. Auburn is getting better.
