It’s Monday and you know what that means, another episode of the Aaron Torres Pod. Aaron leads with the big news from the weekend: Will Muschamp being fired, and then bounces around to the rest of the big stories including Florida’s rise and Michigan’s continued fall to the pits of the Big Ten. Here is a rundown of today’s show:
Will Muschamp is out at South Carolina: After taping the entire show, late breaking news came Sunday night as Will Muschamp was fired at South Carolina, and so Aaron opens there (3:00). He explains why the news was both surprising, but also not surprising and why losing to a first-year head coach in Lane Kiffin might’ve been the final nail in Muschamp’s coffin. He then discusses who could be next for the Gamecocks as head coach.
The rest of the weekend in college football: Following the Muschamp news, Aaron chats about the rest of the weekend in college football. He explains why, despite a bunch of cancellations last week, the season won’t be pushed back (25:00) before turning to the games on the field, where Florida was more impressive than anyone this weekend (40:00). Do the Gators have enough juice to make a playoff push? Aaron also discusses the latest chapter of the never-ending Jim Harbaugh saga, where it’s a matter of if, not when Harbaugh is out in Ann Arbor (49:30). He wraps with what is shaping to be one of the best Heisman races college football has seen in a long time.
