Auburn football podcast: Running back depth was an issue
Here are time marks to help you navigate the podcast:
- Start of the show: Blackerby and Shute talk about Auburn’s running back situation. Entering the season, Auburn media and fans believed that it would be a deep group, but looking back at it now, the whole use of the position group was strange. Kam Martin won the third-string job going into the season then was ignored in some big moments. Shute believes that the Peach Bowl will prove to be a big chance for one back in particular to find himself in a key role.
- 10-minute mark: Defensive coordinator Kevin Steele looks to be staying at Auburn. Shute and Blackerby discuss the upside moving forward.
- 12:40 mark: The experts talk about Auburn basketball and what the Tigers should do for the rest of their nonconference schedule.
- End of the show: The hosts talk about how it will be weird to see UConn in Auburn Arena in a few weeks.
