Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 289: President vs. Big Ten + Jamie Newman + Jay Wright + Carole Baskin


It’s Thursday and you know what that means: An all new episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast. Aaron breaks down the biggest stories in college sports on the first day of FBS football, including the President fighting for Big Ten football, the Pac-12’s incompetence and Jamie Newman’s decision to leave Georgia. Then he discusses Jay Wright staying at Villanova and Carole Baskin making headlines once again. Here is a rundown of today’s show:

The President and the Big Ten: Aaron opens the show with the stunning news this week that President Donald Trump is fighting to save Big Ten football (5:00). Aaron explains why, whether the president’s decision is political or not, it’s still a good thing for college football. He also explains why no one is fighting for the Pac-12 (22:00). Also, on the day that Georgia starting QB Jamie Newman left the program, Aaron explains why there might be more to the story than meets the eye (31:00).

Jay Wright stays at Villanova — Aaron wraps the show by discussing Jay Wright’s decision to return to Villanova, and why it wasn’t a tough decision at all (37:00), Carole Baskin’s return to the spotlight (40:30) and finally, a very special shoutout for long-time listeners of the show.
