Paul Finebaum shares expectations for Auburn after latest transfer portal additions
Paul Finebaum joined WJOX and “McElroy and Cubelic In the morning” to discuss the latest Auburn additions from the transfer portal.
The Tigers in recent days have added former Michigan State quarterback Payton Thorne, App State pass rusher Jalen McLeod and Ohio State wide receiver Caleb Burton. Cole Cubelic asked Finebaum if his opinion about Auburn has changed since these players joined the program.
“I think Auburn fans should be jumping for joy today,” Finebaum said. “Last week was great. The quarterback pickup, what was the downside? You can quibble about Michigan State’s production, quibble about anything, but at the worst, he’s an alternative, and at the best, he’s your starter and has a lot of experience.”
More than anything, Finebaum said, Hugh Freeze has won the offseason, and that’s the only season he’s had so far. He then recalled the perception of hiring Freeze in November and December and how much of a chance it was for Auburn.
“None of that matters anymore,” Finebaum said. “… It’s a great time for Auburn. Finally, the malaise of the (Bryan) Harsin era has ended. The last couple years of (Gus) Malzahn, and I think they’re in a really good place, and whether they make a run this year up toward the middle of the pack, I don’t know, but I feel certain this is a bowl team and that’s all you can hope for in Hugh Freeze’s first season.”

One day Far tbaum is tr ashing AU, the next he’s praising them.
That game is gonna be tough for us this year. I just hope the Jordan-Hare voodoo doesn’t show up.
The Auburn faithful is likely to be rowdy every home game. Glad this year’s game is in Baton Rouge. Next year LSU will probably be sweating out a hopeful win at JHS.
Auburn has the fastest shrinking fanbase in the Nation and that’s a widely reported Fact!
I hope you don’t believe that article about the Fan base. That you are just making a joke. Because if you believe any SEC team is losing any fans. You probably believe Hunter never was compensated because of his last name.
The troll pops up on every AU column to post nonsensical garbage. Best to make fun of her and move on.
spursup has the fastest shrinking vagina in the nation.
You are the fastest to slob on a knob in the nation

Tell your Mom I’ll be late tonight. You can still watch from the closet like usual
Dawgs2021 your pimp is still looking for you. Better get back to the street corner.
It’ll be kind of sad watching the last SEC West games this fall. Who knows who we’ll be playing with whatever new scheme they come up with for 2024.
