[WATCH] Bonus: Tim James on Auburn football coach Bryan Harsin and NIL deals for college athletes

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Last Friday, April 1, Alabama gubernatorial candidate Tim James toured Sylacauga. While he answered plenty of questions about his campaign and the upcoming election, James also took time to share his thoughts on something near and dear to him: Auburn football.

James played as a running back under former Auburn coach Pat Dye for the ’81 and ’82 seasons and was in the same position group and meetings as Auburn greats Bo Jackson and Lionel James.

In the video below, James talks about the Tigers’ second year under current coach Bryan Harsin and gives his opinion on the Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) deals that are sweeping through collegiate sports right now.
