Aaron Torres Podcast: Ep. 300: Mack vs. Calipari, CFB Picks + Herschel Walker joins the show!

It’s Episode 300 of the Aaron Torres Podcast, and Aaron celebrates in style, as college football icon Herschel Walker joins the show! First though, Aaron recaps a wild week, including the Chris Mack vs. John Calipari debate, some quick thoughts on the Joey Gatewood/Cade Mays ruling and makes his Week 5 college football picks. Here is a rundown of today’s show:

Mack vs. Calipari, CFB picks and more: Aaron opens the show by discussing the beef between Chris Mack and John Calipari (4:30)! He explains why he sees Mack’s point but still believes he is wrong for wanting to move the game, and then discusses why this Chris Mack video was the best thing that could’ve happened to the Kentucky-Louisville rivalry! Then he discusses Cade Mays and Joey Gatewood getting eligible (and what it could mean for Olivier Sarr) and the Pac-12 trying to get the playoff expanded (24:30). Finally, he wraps with his Week 5 college football picks (31:00)

Herschel Walker joins the podcast: For Episode 300 what better to get things rolling, then by welcoming a living legend to the show: Herschel Walker (40:30). The guys discuss Walker’s incredible life, his time at Georgia, his run as an Olympic bobsledder and why he almost chose the military over playing college football. Finally, Walker wraps by discussing his famous daily routine of over 1,000 push-ups and 3,000 sit-ups. This is an all-time interview and MUST LISTEN stuff!

    I would love for you to ask Walker about his thoughts on BLM in sports and in general. He has a great perspective that I wish more younger people could hear.
