For the second straight week we’ve got ourselves a bonus edition of the Aaron Torres Podcast, as Aaron returns to recap a busy Monday across sports. He goes in-depth on the SEC schedule release and what it means for college football, as well as UNC shutting down campus and the Big Ten’s growing trouble with players and parents. He closes with some quick basketball conversation, discussing Isaiah Joe’s shocking decision to leave Arkansas and a good sign for the season ahead. Here is a rundown of the show:
SEC schedule release, UNC and more trouble in the Big Ten: Aaron opens the show by breaking down all aspects of the SEC schedule release (5:30). He recaps all the big storylines heading into the off-season, before discussing some of the biggest games, matchups and how exciting a 10-game conference schedule will be. He then discusses North Carolina’s decision to shut down in-person classes on campus (26:00) and why it could be a surprisingly good thing for college football. Finally, he discusses another disastrous day in the Big Ten, where parents and players have hired high-powered lawyer Tom Mars, and are ready to fight the league (33:00). Is it possible the Big Ten could flip their decision and play college football this fall?
Isaiah Joe opts out: Aaron closes by chatting about Isaiah Joe’s shocking decision to leave Arkansas for the NBA Draft at the last minute (46:00) and how a big, out of conference matchup could be proof we’re getting college basketball.
