It’s Monday and Aaron Torres is catching you up on all of the fallout around college football. The parents of players are protesting in the Big Ten, what’s next for the SEC and what does it all mean for college hoops? Aaron has you covered. Here is a rundown of today’s show:
Big Ten parents push back: Aaron opens the show by discussing the Big Ten parents who are pushing back on the decision to cancel the football season (6:30). He explains why the group finally had enough, and is asking for answers to the questions the Big Ten doesn’t currently have. He then goes into the situation in the SEC, where the league is set to release its schedule (28:00). More importantly, he explains why public perception and negative headlines are the biggest hurdle the league will have to overcome to get games on the field this fall.
What’s next for college hoops? Aaron closes the show by discussing what the impact of everything going on in football has for college hoops (36:30). While there is plenty of talk of “bubbles” in college hoops, Aaron explains why every college hoops fan should be rooting for college football to get onto the field. Finally, he wraps by discussing a big week in recruiting at Tennessee, where Rick Barnes landed the No. 1 point guard in high school basketball.
