The Aaron Torres Sports Podcast E18: A Wild College Basketball Weekend

It’s a post-Super Bowl edition of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, as Aaron and his buddy Nick Coffey recap the big game and a wild weekend in college basketball.

— First up, a quick chat on the big game. What was up with Gronk’s weird post-game retirement talk, and how can you not love the NFL re-writing its catch/no-catch rule in the middle of the biggest game of the season!
— Turning their attention to college hoops, Nick shares his thoughts on Louisville’s disappointing loss to Syracuse. What was up with Louisville’s weak performance and the crowd’s no-show? Plus the guys go all-in on Jim Boeheim, who came to the defense of Rick Pitino, despite the fact that Boeheim’s own program is currently on probation.
— Next, the guys rewind to a wild weekend in college hoops. What was the strangest result of the weekend, Duke, Kansas or Kentucky losing? Also, how is Duke – with so much elite talent – so reliant on just Marvin Bagley.
— And finally a deep dive on Kentucky, and an article Aaron wrote at KSR Monday: Why it’s a lack of upperclassmen, not a lack of star power in the freshman class which is plaguing the Wildcats this season. The guys also ask: Is there anything John Calipari can do to convince more 3 and 4 year players to come to Kentucky?
