Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 198: Kentucky Loses to Evansville + The Latest on James Wiseman

College hoops is underway and there is plenty to talk about — which is exactly what we do on today’s Aaron Torres Sports Podcast. Aaron recaps Kentucky’s stunning loss to Evansville, and then gives you the latest on James Wiseman. Here is a rundown on today’s show:

Kentucky Gets Shocked by Evansville: It was one of the single most stunning losses in recent college basketball history: Evansville went to Rupp Arena and came out with a victory. Aaron goes in-depth on what went wrong, what needs to be fixed and why Kentucky isn’t good enough right now to overlook anyone. He also explains why, despite the disappointing loss, he still believes the Wildcats will be an elite team long-term.

The Latest on James Wiseman: Following Memphis’ loss on Tuesday, where they once again played James Wiseman, Aaron gives the latest on Wiseman’s status. He explains why — despite the media applauding Memphis — it is actually idiotic for the Tigers to play Wiseman. Also, why it’s unfair to the other players on the team.

It was an absolutely insane weekend in college sports, and Aaron Torres is here to recap it all. He discusses the ramifications of LSU-Bama, the playoff picture and Chad Morris’s firing at Arkansas.

LSU-Alabama Ramifications: Aaron opens the show by discussing the ramifications of LSU’s convincing win over Alabama. He goes in-depth on the incredible job Coach O has done, and why LSU should be No. 1 in the new College Football Playoff poll next week. Also, Aaron explains why Alabama is not out of the playoff picture, but asks the question, after what we saw Saturday, even if Alabama gets in the playoff can they actually win? And he wraps by discussing why Chad Morris had to be fired at Arkansas.

KSR’s Jack Pilgrim is joined by Travis Graf and David Sisk of Cats Illustrated for episode thirteen of the Sources Say Podcast.
This week, the trio of recruiting insiders opened the show by discussing Cade Cunningham’s abrupt commitment to Oklahoma State.

Among the topics:
  • Isaiah Jackson has a decision date. Will it be Kentucky?
  • Would we push for a commitment from Jackson if it risked losing Greg Brown?
  • Jonathan Kuminga was at the Champions Classic to watch Kentucky play. What did he do afterward that is turning heads?
  • Kuminga sat by several familiar names at Madison Square Garden
  • On Wednesday, Kuminga cut his list to ten, but left LSU off completely. Why is this significant?
To close the show, the Sources Say crew discuss Kentucky basketball opening the regular season with a 69-62 victory over top-ranked Michigan State.
  • Who were the standout performers?
  • Is this one of Calipari’s best defensive teams?

EMERGENCY Kentucky Thrones Radio: We have a new Prequel

Forced into isolation following the series finale of Game of Thrones, Nick Roush and T.J. Walker dusted off the podcasting machine shortly after a raven informed them HBO has picked up a new GoT prequel, House of the Dragon.

What you can expect to hear from KSR’s biggest Thrones fans…

— Was it a good idea to ditch The Long Night prequel for this?

— What storylines can we expect to follow?

— Incest is here to stay.

— The overall mystery is gone, but there’s plenty of wiggle room for drama.

You can easily listen on the KSR App, available on iTunes and Google Play.  Streaming online is simple through Pod Paradise.  You can also get it directly to your phone by subscribing to “Kentucky Sports Radio” on iTunes or via Android’s Podcast Addict app.


Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 193: College Football Heating Up + College Basketball is Almost Here!

It’s Monday and it’s time for an all new Aaron Torres Sports Podcast! Aaron bounces back between football and basketball, recapping the weekend, while also looking ahead as the college hoops season nears.

Here is a rundown of today’s show:

College Football: Aaron opens by discussing the weekend that was in college football. Oklahoma loses — no, they’re eliminated from the playoff, but yes, they have big problems. LSU wins and looks bad, while Alabama rolls. Also, Aaron goes in on Chad Morris for Arkansas’ brutal play, while discussing the incredible coaching job of Mark Stoops. Should he be in consideration for SEC Coach of the Year? Aaron believes so.

College Basketball: At around the 39-minute mark Aaron switches gears to college hoops, where he previews the season. Vegas has released over/under win totals and Aaron tells you what bets he likes. Also, he opens the mailbag — which teams are underrated coming into the year? And who does he like to win in the Champions Classic games to open the year?
