Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 115: A Wild NFL Championship Sunday and College Basketball Saturday

We have ourselves one heck of an Aaron Torres Sports Podcast on Monday. Aaron and Nick are back, with a twist. The guys recorded just minutes after the end of the AFC Championship game, so whether you want it or not, you’re going to get some NFL talk in addition to all the college hoops that went down over the weekend. Highlights:
A quick look back at a wild Sunday in football: The guys couldn’t help but talk about an insane day of football before getting to hoops. Why, love or hate the Patriots you’ve got to respect Tom Brady after Sunday night’s wild comeback win. And, who is more hateable — Tom Brady or Bill Belichick? Also, why Aaron doesn’t blame the refs for the Saints loss to the Rams in the early game.
Now to the college hoops: The guys recap a wild weekend of college hoops. Why Kentucky’s win against Auburn was more impressive than most people realize — and just how high is the Wildcats ceiling going forward? Did we actually learn anything about Duke and Virginia following their game and is Virginia really any better-positioned to make the Final Four this year than in previous years? Also, is the honeymoon officially over for Archie Miller after a fourth straight loss for Indiana?

Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 110: Who will be the next UCLA hoops coach + Clemson-Alabama talk

It’s an all new Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, where Aaron gives you the best talk you’ll hear anywhere on the UCLA basketball opening, before Nick Coffey joins the show to talk about Alabama-Clemson and wrap up the 2018 college football season. Here are today’s topics:

The UCLA job is open – who is next: It’s been several days since the UCLA basketball job opened, but Aaron has insight on the gig you won’t hear anywhere else. Aaron explains why the job is unique, but still one of the best jobs in college basketball. He also explains the qualities that are needed to succeed in the gig. Finally, he tells you who he is hearing UCLA likes the most for the job – and who he would hire if he was UCLA. Yes, they are two very different people.

College Football Talk with Nick Coffey: Next, Aaron welcomes in Nick Coffey for the rare, back-of-show appearance for his buddy. The guys talk about all the latest in the college football world: Georgia talked a big talk on Twitter – and then didn’t back it up. Is that proof they don’t belong in the playoff? Aaron dispels the dumb narrative that ticket prices in the championship game are dropping because of lack of interest in the big game. And finally, Aaron and Nick preview Clemson-Bama and tell you who they think will win.

Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 109: Recap of College Football Playoff and Kentucky-Louisville

We had a wild weekend of sports – so what better way to re-live it all than with a new episode of the Aaron Torres Sports. Aaron and Nick Coffey break down all the action from the College Football Playoff and Louisville-Kentucky basketball! They discuss:

Bama’s win over Oklahoma: The Crimson Tide are headed back to the championship after a resounding win over Oklahoma. Was anything about the final result surprising? Also, did this game help or hurt the argument that Kyler Murray deserved the Heisman over Tua? Also, should Oklahoma fans feel better or worse about the state of their program after the loss to Bama?

Clemson advances too: The guys talk about Clemson’s easy win over Notre Dame as well. Aaron makes the argument that Notre Dame actually played Clemson tough early, before big plays doomed them. He also dispels the narrative that this game is proof that Notre Dame didn’t belong in the playoff and explains why anyone demanding an eight-team playoff can’t complain about the Irish’s loss yesterday.

Finally, Kentucky-Louisville talk: The guys wrap by discussing Kentucky’s dominant win over Louisville. The loss showed just how far the Cards have to go to become elite, and also shows how far Kentucky has come in a short amount of time. Aaron explains that all of a sudden the path is wide open for Kentucky, to a No. 1 seed and maybe more!
