Oh boy, do we have a great episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast. Aaron and Nick Coffey talk about a wild weekend on and off the court in college hoops. The bracket was revealed, several big games were played and Tom Crean made one of the dumbest comments a coach could possibly make. Here is a recap of it all:
Bracket Reveal: The NCAA revealed it’s Top 16 teams in the bracket. Kentucky came in as the top No. 2 seed, while Gonzaga was the last No. 1. The guys discuss whether they’d have a problem if Gonzaga got a No. 1 seed, and Aaron says that he doesn’t believe it will come down to Gonzaga vs. UK for the final No. 1 come Selection Sunday.
College Basketball Highlights: Virginia lost to Duke, again. Aaron believes this is proof that they aren’t a real national championship contender. Nick makes the point that we kind of “know” who teams are at this point, and that Kentucky’s win over Mississippi State isn’t really surprising for people who know the sport. Same with Marquette and Villanova. Also, the Duke-Virginia game out-rated the NBA on TV Saturday night. Is this proof that Adam Silver is looking at the one-and-done rule the wrong way?
Tom Crean’s Idiotic Comments: Last up, the guys get into Tom Crean’s really dumb comments following another Georgia loss. How out of touch is Crean and would any other coach ever say anything so stupid?
