It’s time for another episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, as a monster guest joins the show: SEC Network’s Paul Finebaum hops on board to preview the mega-games in the SEC this weekend, Georgia-Kentucky and Bama-LSU. But first, Aaron is joined by his buddy Nick Coffey, where the pair discuss:
The First College Football Playoff Rankings:The guys break out their conspiracy theories when discuss the first College Football Playoff Rankings release. Aaron explains why he actually believes that the committee is doing everything they can to keep Notre Dame OUT of the playoff and why Michigan has to feel good that if they win out, they’re in. Also, has Central Florida already gone as high in the rankings as they will this season?
A look at the weekend’s big games: Before Aaron and Paul break down the big games, Nick and Aaron discuss them. Aaron has an intriguing theory why we’re focused on the wrong thing in Bama-LSU, and he also explains why the matchups favor Kentucky, not Georgia, Saturday in Lexington. Can the Wildcats really pull the upset?
Next up, Aaron welcomes in Paul, who is on the show on behalf of Pilot Flying J. The two discuss:
Kentucky’s Meteoric Rise In Football: The guys open the segment by chatting about Kentucky’s unbelievable rise in football. Could Paul have ever imagined watching the Wildcats play for an SEC title? How Mark Stoops might be a new example of the patience needed to build a major college football program? And can Kentucky actually beat the ‘Dawgs on Saturday?
Alabama-LSU: Next up, Paul discusses his thoughts on the Alabama Crimson Tide. He explains why he has never seen a quarterback quite like Tua Tagovailoa, a player who some have compared to Alabama greats like Joe Namath, Kenny Stabler and even LeBron James. Paul also explains why he likes Bama to win on Saturday. Also, who does Paul think the toughest challenger is in college football for Bama?
And finally, Aaron wraps up with his thoughts from a visit to Nevada basketball practice this week. The Wolf Pack are in the preseason Top 10 and Aaron explains why he believes they’re good enough to not only compete for a national championship… but win one.
