Aaron Torres Podcast Ep. 304: A full recap of a wild weekend in college football

It’s Monday and you know what that means – an all new episode of the Aaron Torres Podcast. Aaron has a full recap from a truly wild Saturday in college football, ranging from the insane Alabama-Ole Miss game, Clemson and Georgia’s dominant victories and a program-changing win for Jimbo Fisher. He wraps with the reality that LSU stinks and Arkansas got railroaded by SEC officials. Here is a full rundown of today’s show:

Alabama-Ole Miss, Georgia and Clemson: Aaron opens the show by discussing the first great weekend in college football (4:00). He discusses Alabama’s shootout with Ole Miss, and why he believes that this is a testament to Lane Kiffin (5:30). For all the crap that Kiffin gets, Aaron believes he has a chance to turn Ole Miss into a headache for the rest of the SEC. He then asks, is Alabama’s defense *really* a problem (18:00) and is this the best Georgia team since Kirby Smart got to Athens (23:00). Finally, Aaron explains why as impressive as Clemson’s win was, the Tigers didn’t even play their best football in a dominant victory over Miami (31:30).

Plus, the rest of college football: After a short break, Aaron returns. He talks about a signature win for Jimbo Fisher and why it was probably a little unfair to question the Texas A&M coach even despite his struggles leading into this game (41:00) and why Saturday proves that LSU stinks and why it isn’t getting better this year (54:00). And finally, Aaron discusses why Arkansas got jobbed by the referees, but it shouldn’t take away from everything they’ve accomplished in just three short weeks under Sam Pittman (59:00).
