Bird LeCroy (@Autull) is joined by Seth Merenbloom to discuss Gus Malzahn’s Auburn contract extension, Jimbo Fisher turning up the heat on Tom Herman, Alabama sneaking into the Playoff, and the strength of the Field Of 4.
Rivalry week gets some special treatment here with all of the big games, the coaching carousel, and playoff implications swarming around us in the SEC. Who will coach where? Will there be changes within the conference with coaches switching schools?
Seth (@SethMerenbloom) and Bird (@Autull) got the Adidas/basketball scandal dropped on them just before time to record, and they address that unholy mess in Episode 83. A couple of football stories, Butch Jones’ and Barry Odom’s locker room rants, were taken on as were this week’s predictions on all of the upcoming SEC games.
Seth (@SethMerenbloom) and Bird (@Autull) haven’t talked much about Mississippi State over the years, but that all changed on Episode 82. We talk about Dan Mullen and his job prospects, Auburn and Gus Malzahn’s personnel issues, and no episode of The SEC 411 is complete without mention of Butch Jones.
The SEC has six teams ranked in the AP Preseason Top 25. Much to everyone’s surprise, Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee are all in the ranking. SEC fans everywhere are hoping that this preseason SEC East love is indicative of a quality season out of the entire East division.
