It’s Monday — time for an all new Aaron Torres Sports Podcast. Aaron explains how the situation has somehow gotten messier in the Big Ten and talks college hoops recruiting as Duke and Kentucky pick up commitments. Then he welcomes fantasy sports guru John Frascella to get you ready for fantasy football season. Here is a rundown of today’s show:
The Big Ten mess drags on + college hoops recruiting: Aaron opens the show by discussing Omaha.com’s scathing report on the Big Ten, in which they discovered that the Big Ten Presidents decided to cancel football without consulting any medical or athletic personnel (6:00). Aaron explains why, as bad as we thought the decision was, it has turned out even worse, and the long-term ramifications it will have on both players and local communities. Next, he talks about Paolo Banchero committing to Duke, the impact the he believes Banchero will have on the 2021-2022 college hoops season and why Kentucky and Tennessee were hurt by the lack of travel in recruiting (30:20). Finally, he discusses Kentucky recruiting and gives a unique reason why he believes Kentucky has been quiet on the recruiting front this spring (38:00).
Fantasy football guru John Frascella: Aaron welcomes in fantasy football guru John Frascella, host of the John Frascella Podcast to the show (50:00). Frascella gets you caught up on all the storylines in fantasy football, including the best players, biggest sleepers and stars who are both under and overvalued. Also, what do we make of a team like the Cleveland Browns, that have a ton of talent but not the results on the field?
