It’s been a wild week in the world of college hoops and Aaron Torres is here to discuss it all in today’s edition of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, as he breaks down the Kansas brawl, Shaka Smart’s (likely) final days at Texas and previews the Big 12-SEC Challenge. Today’s rundown:
The Kansas-Kansas State Brawl: Aaron opens the show by discussing the story that has swept across college basketball, the brawl between Kansas and Kansas State. He explains why he waited until after the suspensions to comment on the story and why the Big 12 got it right by sitting Silvio de Sousa for 12 games. Also, with another black eye to Bill Self’s program, is there any chance he could try to get out of Lawrence this offseason?
Shaka Smart is (unofficially) done at Texas: After Texas lost by 39 points to West Virginia, Aaron explains why we’re seeing the final days of Shaka Smart at Texas. What went wrong for Shaka, who was once a rising star in the sport, and what’s next for the Longhorns? Also, Aaron explains the long-term recruiting ramifications for the Horns following this news.
Finally, Aaron wraps by previewing this weekend’s Big 12-SEC Challenge.
