Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 181: Week 3 College Football + Terrence Clarke Reaction

It’s a busy day on the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, as Aaron not only reacts to Week 3 of college football, but also shares his thoughts on high school superstar Terrence Clarke committing to Kentucky. What does it mean for the Wildcats and college basketball as a whole? Here is a rundown of today’s show:

Week 3 College Football Recap: Aaron gives the full rundown from this weekend in college football. He says that the top of the sport is starting to separate themselves — are Ohio State, Georgia, LSU and Oklahoma just as good as Alabama and Clemson? Also, he discusses the Florida-Kentucky game at length, why it is so disappointing for Kentucky, who dominated the game, and why he was a bit disappointed with the Wildcats’ coaching staff down the stretch who got conservative after taking the lead. Also, Urban Meyer made some interesting comments about his coaching future this weekend.

Terrence Clarke’s Commitment to Kentucky: Aaron concludes the show by discussing the commitment of one of the top high school players in America, Terrence Clarke, who will reclassify and play college basketball next year at the University of Kentucky. Aaron explains why he believes that Clarke has the look of a future NBA All-Star, and why, if there was doubt about John Calipari’s recruiting touch, it has officially been silenced once again. Also, what could be next in the Wildcats’ recruiting class?

Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 179: Week Two College Football Recap


Another weekend of college football is in the books and Aaron Torres is here to recap it all. He talks all the big games, including Texas-LSU and A&M-Clemson, and discusses why Michigan is screwed, why Tennessee is worse than anyone could ever imagine and what does Kentucky do post-Terry Wilson? Here is a rundown of today’s show.

LSU wins and is a national title contender: In the big game of the weekend LSU went to Texas and not only left with a win — but Aaron believes, a shot at the national title. He explains why this offense is what makes this team so different, and why it’s a credit to Coach O for shaking things up. He also wonders if — like Alabama and Georgia — they could get into the playoff mix if they finish the regular season with one loss and don’t win the SEC Championship.

Clemson is a juggernaut… again: Even after they lost basically their entire defense, Clemson proved that they are still a cut above everyone else (not named “Bama”) in a dominant win over Texas A&M. With a soft schedule, did Clemson already (unofficially) clinch a playoff spot? And is it bad for college football that they are so much better than the rest of the ACC?

A Wild CFB Weekend: Aaron wraps by discussing all the big stories in the sport this weekend. He explains why Michigan is screwed, even with a win, and why Tennessee has hit another new rock bottom with no end in sight. He also discusses the injury to Terry Wilson and wonders if Gunnar Hoak regrets leaving Kentucky.

Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 178: Week Two of College Football with Sirius XM’s Jacob Hester


We’re heading into another weekend of college football, so get set for Saturday by downloading the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast! Aaron talks about all the big games and is joined by Jacob Hester, the former LSU Tiger running back and current host on the Sirius XM SEC Channel

A full rundown of today’s show:

Week 2 of the College Football Season: Aaron explains why he doesn’t necessarily believe that Texas is “back” like much of the media, but that the Longhorns will still keep things close against LSU. Even though each team has high-powered offenses, Torres believes Texas A&M-Clemson will be super low-scoring. He also gives his Week 2 gambling picks and shares some inside information on one game that no one is talking about.

Aaron welcomes Jacob Hester to the show: Aaron is joined by his good friend Jacob Hester, who played at LSU and in the NFL, and now hosts on Sirius XM radio. Jacob discusses his playing career which included being recruited by Nick Saban and playing for both Saban and Les Miles. He explains why he thinks Miles will work at Kansas and shares some funny behind the scenes stories. Then the guys transition to this weekend’s big game between LSU and Texas. Jacob explains what this win would mean for LSU and answers the question: Will they ever actually catch Alabama?

Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 177: Tennessee’s Disastrous Loss Highlights Week One of College Football


College football is back and so is the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast! Aaron has a recap of the entire Week 1 of college football, including Tennessee’s disastrous loss to Georgia State. Highlights:

Thoughts on Oregon-Auburn: It was the game of the weekend, and Aaron has a lot of thoughts on Oregon’s meltdown against Auburn. Aaron explains why you shouldn’t blame Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal for the loss, and why the Ducks have to be sick after completely controlling that game. Also, in a weird twist, Aaron explains why he actually feels worse about Auburn after their win, not better.

Tennessee’s disastrous loss to Georgia State: Next Aaron discusses the upset of the weekend, as Tennessee fell to Georgia State. He wonders how the once proud Vols program fell so far, and why yes, he feels bad for Tennessee. Also, after what we saw this weekend, is there any reason to think that things will get better for the Vols going forward this season?

A look at the rest of the SEC’s tough Saturday: Aaron wraps by discussing a tough day for other SEC teams in addition to Tennessee including Missouri and Ole Miss, and why you shouldn’t judge a conference by its bad teams. Also, he explains why he is completely done talking South Carolina on the show forever, and wraps by discussing the legendary Hugh Frieze, who coached from a hospital bed and once again proved that there really is nothing quite as crazy as college football.
