The Iron Bowl of Podcasts is back as the year in athletics wraps up for Alabama and Auburn in 2021-22.

There was no shortage of wild storylines. Auburn's ranged from the debacle with Bryan Harsin in February to Olympian Suni Lee's success as a national champion in gymnastics. Meanwhile, Alabama had a Heisman Trophy winner in Bryce Young but a few teams that couldn't quite reach expectations.

How will this past year be remembered for both schools? Who had the craziest year? Who deserved to win the ASWA amateur athlete of the year between Young and Lee?

Those questions and more are answered in the latest episode of the Iron Bowl of Podcasts, a USA TODAY Network conversation show in which Alabama beat writer Nick Kelly and Auburn beat writer Bennett Durando debate and discuss the greatest rivalry in sports — because what else really matters to sports fans in the state of Alabama?
