The Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 76: Rick Pitino book + the return of Nevada coach Eric Musselman

A new episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast is live – with the return of one of our favorite guests, Nevada basketball coach Eric Musselman. But before we get to Coach Muss, Aaron is joined by Nick Coffey as the two discuss a number of topics:

The Rick Pitino Book: It’s the literary smash hit of the summer! Just kidding. The guys dive into all the details of Rick Pitino’s book, and explain why it doesn’t teach anyone anything they didn’t already know about Pitino. Aaron and Nick then debate whether Pitino will ever coach again and his crazy claim that governor Matt Bevin is the reason he lost his job.

A preview of Week 2 of college football: Next up the guys discuss all the big games this weekend in college football. Aaron explains why he thinks Clemson wins big at Texas A&M and the guys both agree Georgia-South Carolina will be a low-scoring slug fest. Also, is there any chance Kentucky can pull the upset against Florida?

Next up, Aaron is joined by one of his favorite guests: Nevada head coach Eric Musselman. Coach Muss led the Wolfpack to the Sweet 16 last year and joined the show earlier this summer. He discuss:

Story Time with Coach Muss: As always, Coach Muss is full stories from his days coaching in the CBA, USBL and G-League. This week’s stories include the time his team was late to a game because they got caught in a McDonald’s drive thru and also when he sent an assistant into the stands to relax and eat popcorn – during a game.

His 2018-2019 team: The Wolfpack are loaded, and most people have them ranked in the Top 10 to begin the year. What has he seen from off-season workouts and how different will next year’s team look on the court? Also, is it easier to coach a team with too much depth or not enough depth?

His small role in creating “Linsanity”: And finally we end with more stories, as Coach Muss explains his small role in helping create “Linsanity.”

The Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 75: Week 1 College Football Reaction

Aaron Torres and Nick Coffey are back with a new episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast – with an hour’s worth of reaction from across the Week 1 college football landscape. The two hit on all the big topics, starting with:

A Bad Day for Jim Harbaugh: The guys react to another disappointing effort for Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines. What went wrong on Saturday night – and after what we’ve seen the last three years should we really be surprised? Also, is there any way the Wolverines can turn it around in a loaded Big Ten?

A Good Day for Ed Orgeron: While it was a bad week for Harbaugh and the Wolverines, it was a great week to be an LSU Tiger. Aaron asks: Why was everyone so sure Ed Orgeron would be a failure at LSU? Also, how happy are Tigers fans right now that they didn’t get Tom Herman and instead ended up with Coach O?

Finally, Alabama’s Domination of Louisville: Nick was on the ground in Orlando, and reacted to the Crimson Tide’s curb stomping of Louisville. Is the Alabama QB debate officially dead? And how much better can the Crimson Tide be with elite QB play?

Plus reaction to other stories in college football, including Herm Edwards glorious Week 1 debut, does Ohio State run itself, and the guys make stupid, ridiculously early playoff picks.

Playoff picks: Aaron also gives his playoff picks. Like everyone else he is rolling with Bama and Clemson, but has another team playing for the national championship. Also, is this the year Jim Harbaugh finally breaks through at Michigan?

Next up Aaron is joined by Kayce Smith, who works for Barstool Sports and co-hosts the “Comeback Szn” podcast with former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. The two discuss:

Kayce’s rise in the sports media business:Kayce explains walking away from her “dream job” at ESPN got her to where she is today. What went into that decision and why sometimes you have to believe in yourself when no one else does. Also, how an unexpected twist helped her land at Barstool.

She also goes into great deal of how he’s evolved as a person, and shares the best stories he’s told on their podcast.

Finally, her thoughts on the 2018 college football season: Kayce shares her thoughts on what to expect this season. Why she is in on Jim Harbaugh and Michigan and curious to see how Jimbo Fisher does in Year 1 at Texas A&M.
