Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 194: What do the NIL rules mean for the future of college sports?

It’s a new episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, as Aaron discusses potential sweeping changes to college sports with the implementation of new Name, Image and Likeness rules. He then talks college football, and wraps by discussing a few news and notes from college basketball.

Here is a rundown of today’s show:

What do the Name, Image and Likeness Changes Mean for College Sports: Aaron opens by discussing one of the biggest topics in all of sports, the NCAA changing their Name, Image and Likeness rules. Aaron explains why it isn’t quite what fans think, but still a step in the right direction. He also explains why he doesn’t expect the rule change to have a major impact on college sports, and could actually help college basketball in the long run.

College football weekend preview: Aaron then turns his attention to college football, where it’s a major weekend for the playoff picture. He explains how the Pac-12 could seriously play themselves into or out of the playoff picture, and also how the committee could have its hardest job yet this season. If there is ever a year where we need an 8-team playoff, this could be it.

Finally, Aaron wraps by answering one simple question: Is it a big deal that Duke, Louisville and Michigan State all struggled in exhibitions this week on the hard wood?
