Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 84: Everything you need to know about college basketball’s FBI case

It’s a new edition of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, as Aaron Torres and Nick Coffey spend most of the show recapping a wild week in the college basketball FBI probe, before turning their attention to Week 6 of the college football season. Among the topics include:

A detailed look at what has happened so far in the FBI case: The guys take a deep dive into the FBI probe so far, and Brian Bowen’s dad accusing a number of schools including Louisville, Arizona, Creighton and Texas of offering his family cash. How much of what Bowen said was true? And how much should we believe both Bowen and Christian Dawkins?

Media coverage of the event: Next the guys go off on the media coverage of the trial. The guys wonder whether the media even cares about reporting the facts, or whether they simply want to make all of college basketball look bad. Also, how strong is a case that is built entirely on the words of Christian Dawkins, a career con man?

A quick Week 6 college football preview: Finally the guys wrap by looking at all the big games in college football this weekend. If Notre Dame wins, will they inevitably shake up the playoff race? Aaron explains why he isn’t sold on another playoff contender. Also, can the Kentucky Wildcats keep their hot streak going against the tough competition at Texas A&M?

VOTE: Which KSR Football Podcaster Drafted the Best UK Defense?

VOTE: Which KSR Football Podcaster Drafted the Best UK Defense?

After six years, Mark Stoops finally has a dominant defense.  The Cats are currently tied for third in the nation in scoring defense by allowing just 12.6 points per game.

Josh Allen is the poster child for UK’s defense.  He leads the conference in sacks and tackles for loss, and has been named the nation’s top edge defender through the first half of the 2018 season.  Allen has been elite, but what makes this Kentucky defense great is its balance.

The Cats have picked off six passes, fourth-most in the SEC.  Darius West and Kash Daniel each have 37 tackles, tied for sixth in the SEC.  West leads the SEC in passes defended with seven; the only reason Derrick Baity does not have more than four is because teams are afraid to throw at him.  Even the reserves have made an impact — Marquan McCall has forced a fumble and Tyrell Ajian has picked off a pass.

The depth on defense inspired The KSR Football Podcast to create a fantasy-style snake draft.  There were quite a few difficult decisions made on the most recent episode.

Team Chuck Team Franklin Team Mac
Josh Allen Darius West Jordan Jones
Derrick Baity Mike Edwards Kash Daniel
Chris Westry Boogie Watson Lonnie Johnson Jr.
Calvin Taylor Jr. Chris Oats Quinton Bohanna

Each team is stacked, but who had the best draft?  Charles Walker has the defense’s brightest star, Austin MacGinnis picked the nastiest team but you cannot overlook Drew’s elite secondary.  Now it’s your turn to decide: who has the best four UK defensive players?

Ep. 83 Aaron Torres Sports Podcast: "Thunder" Dan Majerle

It’s a new episode of “The Podcast That is Sweeping America” — the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast.  Aaron is joined by former Hall of Famer and current head basketball coach at Grand Canyon, Dan Majerle. First, Aaron is joined by Nick Coffey to talk some college football, starting with:

Penn State’s meltdown against Ohio State: The guys break down Penn State’s epic collapse against Ohio State. Why did everyone focus on the final play instead of the complete meltdown? Where does Penn State go from here? And why doesn’t the public like James Franklin?

What’s next at Clemson? The guys react to the stunning the development at Clemson, where the Tigers starting QB left the program, the new starter got hurt and no one knows what to expect next. Aaron explains why Saturday’s injury proved that Kelly Bryant was right to leave the team, and Aaron and Nick argue over whether Clemson is a legitimate playoff threat without Bryant.

Finally, thoughts on Notre Dame’s win and another dominant Kentucky performance: With Notre Dame’s win over Stanford, are they a sneaky playoff contender? Also, the guys break down Kentucky’s win = and the stunning sight of seeing a Will Muschamp team bullied into submission.

Next up, Aaron is joined by the legend himself, Thunder Dan Majerle. Majerle is the head coach at Grand Canyon University right now, but takes fans back to his days as an NBA All-Star. The guys chat about:

Where did the Nickname “Thunder Dan” come from? Aaron opens with the question everyone in America wants to know: Where did Majerle get the nickname “Thunder Dan?” Majerle tells the story, as well as how and why he was booed by Suns fans the night of the NBA Draft.

Thunder Dan’s best memories of playing in the NBA: Majerle discusses his time in the NBA. What was it like to go up against his idol Larry Bird? What was it like to guard Michael Jordan? And finally, Majerle settles the debate once and for all: MJ or LeBron.

The future of Grand Canyon basketball: Finally, Majerle wraps by discussing his expectations for Grand Canyon this season and beyond. He talks about building the program, and what it was like to fall one game short of the NCAA Tournament in the Lopes first year eligible. Also, what is the ceiling for this program during his time as head coach?

Ep. 82 Aaron Torres Sports Podcast: Gary Parrish on the Future of College Basketball

It’s a new episode of the Aaron Torres Sports, as Aaron has an extensive conversation on the future of college basketball with CBS Sports’ Gary Parrish. First though, Aaron is joined by his buddy Nick Coffey, as the guys discuss the following:
The one-year anniversary of college basketball’s FBI probe: It’s been one year since the FBI shook college basketball to its core, and the guys debate just how much has changed in college basketball. Aaron thinks the answer is yes and Nick isn’t quite sure. Also, will any other big name coaches get lumped into the probe before its all said and done?
Transfer talk in college football + Week 5 preview: The guys react to the news that Clemson QB Kelly Bryant is leaving the team thanks to a new transfer rule. Will this be the norm in college football going forward? And was Bryant unfair to his coaches and teammates? Plus the guys talk all the big games of Week 5: Ohio State-Penn State, Stanford-Notre Dame and South Carolina-Kentucky.
Next up, CBS Sports’ Gary Parrish joins the show, for an all-encompassing, hour-long talk on the state of college basketball. Specifically, Parrish and the CBS Sports team have been evaluating the big programs (Kentucky, Duke and North Carolina) and asking “who will be the next coach at those schools.” The guys discuss:
What the future looks like at all the big schools: What is next at Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky and Kansas, and how much say will the current coach have in his replacement? Also, how important is it to “keep it in the family” at a place like Duke and Carolina? Or should the schools just go get the best coach?
Which current coach has the biggest shoes to fill: The guys wonder who will have bigger shoes to fill: The man who replaces Coach K or John Calipari? Also, Gary explains why he believes the Kentucky job is the most unique in all of basketball – not just college, but the NBA.
Finally, Gary’s thoughts on Penny Hardaway: Gary hosts radio in Memphis and talks about Penny Hardaway’s first six months on the job. He explains why Penny has exceeded even the highest expectations for him, and why Gary believes he’s already done more for the program than any new coach in college basketball.
