Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 88: Peter Burns and SEC Hoops Preview

It is a jam-packed episode of the Aaron Torres Sports, as he spans the college football and basketball worlds in a way that only he can. The SEC Network’s Peter Burns joins Aaron to discuss Kentucky’s SEC East title hopes, Notre Dame’s shot at the CFB Playoff and the rest of college football landscape.  After SEC Football talk, Aaron provides a few SEC Basketball predictions. But first, Aaron welcomes on Nick Coffey to discuss a wild week of courtroom drama on the FBI case.
Should Bill Self Be Fired? The guys break down all the testimony from court this week and ask the question: Should Bill Self be out at Kansas? Aaron explains why — after a year of the NCAA saying they want to remove sneaker company influence — they need to step up, but the guys also question if there is enough to cost Bill Self his job.
Coach K’s comments and Zion Williamson: Aaron defends the Hall of Famer after Coach K said the FBI trials are just a “blip” on the college basketball radar. He also explains why it isn’t so obvious that Zion Williamson definitely took extra benefits to go to Duke. The guys also discuss friend of the podcast Will Wade and his potential involvement in the case.
Next up the SEC Network’s Peter Burns joins the show. Peter discusses a number of topics, including:
Is Notre Dame a legit title threat? Peter made some headlines earlier in the week when he said that he thinks Notre Dame will get crushed if they go to the playoff and he isn’t backing down.
Why Kentucky will win the SEC East: Burns believes Kentucky will win the SEC East and face Alabama in the SEC Championship. He explains why he believes the Wildcats have the goods to get to Atlanta. They also talk about LSU’s surprise run, Texas A&M and more.
Finally, Aaron wraps the show withSEC basketball predictions. After an extensive article here, he breaks down who he likes, who he doesn’t and who will finish where in the final league standings.

It’s a new episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, with the return of former NBA star Corey Brewer! Brewer joined the show during the summer and is here to talk about the season ahead. But first, Aaron welcomes in his buddy Nick Coffey, as the guys discuss:
A wild, upset filled Saturday in college football: Six of the Top 16 teams in country fell and the guys answer the question: What was the biggest upset? Also the guys show love to Coach O after a big win, and wonder just how good Georgia is after the loss? Finally, why isn’t Michigan getting more love after dominating Wisconsin for their sixth straight win?
What does the playoff picture look like? The guys break down the playoff picture after all the upsets. Why the SEC’s dream of getting two teams in is dead, but all of a sudden, the Big Ten is in play for multiple bids. Also, why Notre Dame is in great shape but the Big 12 and Pac-12 are in big, BIG trouble.
Next up, it’s the return of former NBA star Corey Brewer. Brewer played last season with the Oklahoma City Thunder and LA Lakers and is currently a free agent, and after joining the show in the summer he is back to talk about…
The Jimmy Butler insanity: The guys recorded late last week in the middle of the Jimmy Butler melodrama in Minnesota. Brewer explains why Butler crossed a line. He also describes what it’s like to be an NBA player in the middle of front office drama similar to Butler’s right now.
His thoughts on the season ahead in the NBA: Brewer shares his thoughts on all things NBA this season. After playing with the Lakers last year he discusses the LeBron/Lonzo dynamic in LA, as well as his thoughts on some of the league’s best young players. He explains why he believes Donovan Mitchell and Brandon Ingram are the next big stars in the league.
Finally, some Florida Gators talk: Brewer shares some thoughts on his alma mater, the Florida Gators. He discusses his relationship with head coach Mike White (who was hired after his coach, Billy Donovan left) and whether Dan Mullen’s Gators are “back” on the football field.

It’s a new episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, as Rivals.com‘s Corey Evans joins the show to break down all the big storylines in college basketball recruiting. But first, Aaron is joined by Nick Coffey, as the guys discuss:
The latest on college basketball’s FBI probe: The guys dive deep into the FBI probe.

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?
