12-team CFB Playoff? Pangos All-American camp notes + college baseball deep dive (for dummies) with Phil Elson

It’s Thursday and you know what that means: Time for a new Aaron Torres Podcast! Aaron discusses talk of a 12-team College Football Playoff (and why he hates it) and also shares notes from his time at the Pangos All-American basketball camp. Then he brings on Arkansas baseball play-by-play voice Phil Elson to tell him everything he needs to know about college baseball and this weekend’s “Super Regionals.”

12-team College Football Playoff? Pangos All-American camp notes: Aaron opens the show by discussing talk this week that the College Football Playoff will expand to 12 teams (3:30). He explains why he has finally come around to the idea of expansion (7:00), but hates a push past eight teams to 12 (18:00). He also recaps his day at the Pangos All-American Camp, one of the top high school events in the country (26:00). He discusses players that stood out, and why the “G-League” and “Overtime Elite” were all the buzz of the camp.

Arkansas play-by-play voice Phil Elson previews college baseball’s Super Regionals: Aaron knows nothing about college baseball but has loved the last week of NCAA Tournament play – so he welcomed on good friend, and play-by-by voice of the No. 1 team in the country Arkansas, to look ahead to the weekend (45:30). The guys discuss what makes a great college baseball program, the differences between college baseball and college football/college basketball (and why they’re also the same) and also the biggest storylines heading into this weekend’s Super Regionals. Included are: The rise of Tennessee, is this finally Arkansas’ year and is LSU about to lock in a legendary coach?
