Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 103: Should UK Fans be Worried and How did Tua Lose the Heisman?

It is a jam-packed edition of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, as Aaron and his buddy Nick recap a wild weekend of college basketball and football. They talk a whole bunch of college hoops then go off on the Heisman trust.  A few of the topics touched on…
Kentucky’s loss to Seton Hall: Aaron and Nick take a deep dive on Kentucky’s loss to Seton Hall. First they focus on the positives (PJ Washington’s emergence as a star and Ashton Hagans) and also ask the question: Is there really any reason to believe Kentucky wont be fine by March? But that dive isn’t deep enough. Is the excuse of “We might not be good in November, but we will be ready by March” an acceptable excuse for Kentucky and John Calipari anymore?
The rest of the weekend in college hoops: They break down Tennessee’s victory over No. 1 Gonzaga. The Vols are just an old-school, hard hat college hoops team and the guys love it. Plus, they discuss Nevada’s victory over No. 20 Arizona State and why this Nevada team can hang with anyone in college basketball.
Aaron goes off on the Heisman Committee: Aaron can’t believe Tua lost the Heisman. If this is a season-long award, how did Tua lose it to Kyler Murray? Also, will this change the way Nick Saban coaches next year? And finally, Aaron explains why Tua and Alabama will get their revenge in the playoff in a few weeks.

Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 102: Verne Lundquist

It’s a very, VERY special episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast today, as legendary broadcaster Verne Lundquist joins the show to talk about his time in the SEC, relationships with Nick Saban, Urban Meyer and more.
Before we get to Verne though, Aaron starts off by hitting on a few topics that caught his eye over the last week:
The Biggest Storylines One Month into the College Basketball Season: It is officially one month since the start of college basketball season, and Aaron discusses the biggest topics so far in the season. He explains why he believes Michigan is actually the best team in the country, and he reveals a stunning early National Player of the Year selection. He also explains why it isn’t time to worry about Kentucky… yet.
Coaching Carousel: On Monday, the Bulls fired head coach Fred Hoiberg and there was immediate talk that the former Iowa State basketball coach would return to college basketball. While Hoiberg has already been linked to UCLA, Aaron explains why he doesn’t believe it’s the right fit.
Next up, it’s that time — “Uncle” Verne joins the show! The legendary broadcaster discusses a number of topics including:
How he Stumbled into Broadcasting SEC football: Verne takes us down the long, winding road that led him to the SEC. He reveals the “demotion” that landed him on the college football beat, and how it’s the best thing that ever happened to him. He also shared some memories that stand out.
His Relationship with Nick Saban and is Urban Meyer really Retired? Verne provides perspective on the two most prominent coaches he covered on the SEC beat: Nick Saban and Urban Meyer. He explains why he believes Saban is the greatest college football coach who has ever lived, and his complicated relationship with Meyer that leads him to believe that maybe, just maybe, he isn’t actually “retired.”
Finally, more stories: Verne wraps with a couple more stories, including the time that he and Terry Bradshaw made up a player while calling NFL games for the entire season and how he met his wife while she was on a date with another man. This is must… listen… stuff!!

Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 101: Urban Meyer Retires and CFB Playoff Questions

After a little delay, the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast is back. Aaron opens the show solo with breaking news of Urban Meyer’s retirement, then later Nick Coffey and Aaron break down all the happenings in college football over the weekend. The boys will talk basketball later this week, but for now it’s all pigskin, as they discuss:

Urban Meyer Retires: Aaron opens the show by discussing the announcement of Urban Meyer’s retirement. Aaron explains why Meyer has a complicated legacy that includes winning big on the field, but also letting his players and assistant coaches get away with murder (in some cases literally) off the field. Also, Aaron explains why Ohio State fans will soon regret defending Meyer… and why no one actually believes Meyer is “retired.” Will he end up as the next head coach at USC? Notre Dame? In the NFL?
 
The Scott Satterfield Hire: The news became official right before Nick and Aaron recorded, but Scott Satterfield is Louisville’s next head coach. Nick explains the road to name Satterfield head coach and why Louisville fans are NOT happy with the decision to name him to the post. Also, Aaron discusses Vince Tyra as the school’s AD and why his unique background may have helped him with this hire.
The College Football Playoff: The guys spend the second half of the show talking College Football Playoff. They ask: Did the committee get it right? Aaron explains why he doesn’t believe Georgia was a legit candidate and why Oklahoma should have gotten the spot. Aaron also makes the case for Ohio State and brings up an interesting conspiracy theory to explain why they weren’t only left out, but never seriously considered for a spot.

Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 100: Brohm Watch + College Hoops

It’s episode 100 of the Aaron Torres Sports podcast and there is no special song and dance — just great sports talk.  Louisville is still looking for a football coach (at least when the recording happened) and there is plenty of college hoops to discuss. The guys break down the latest on:
Brohm Watch: Somehow it’s late Wednesday and Louisville still doesn’t have a football coach. Nick explains why the longer things go, the worse it is for Louisville fans and what will the Cards do next if Jeff Brohm stays at Purdue. Plus, one fact no one is talking about that could sway Brohm one way or another.
Louisville’s Massive Win Over Michigan State: We’ll talk some Kentucky or other hoops down the line, but the biggest story from Tuesday night was Louisville’s win over Michigan State. Why it’s a great sign for the Cards to win while not playing well, plus has this changed the outlook on what Louisville’s ceiling is?
Finally, Could We Get a Controversy with Nevada Down the Road: The Nevada Wolf Pack dominated Loyola-Chicago on Tuesday night, with their first major victory of the season. The Wolf Pack are good — REALLY good. Unfortunately, Aaron already sees a controversy coming for the Pack as the season wears on.

All the Playoff Scenarios: With Ohio State’s win, what does it mean for their chances at the College Football Playoff? Also, Aaron and Nick debate who deserves the fourth playoff spot if both Oklahoma and Ohio State win next week. Finally, will the SEC once again get two playoff teams if Georgia beats Alabama?
