It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means: A bonus, Tuesday edition of the Aaron Torres Podcast. On a quiet day in sports, Aaron explains why he loves Deion Sanders’s latest move and Kentucky’s domination of the NBA bubble. Then Nick Coffey joins him to discuss all the trending topics in sports including thoughts on college football so far, college basketball bubbles and much more. Here is a rundown of today’s show:
Deion Sanders is a college coach and Kentucky dominates the NBA bubble: Aaron opens the show by discussing Deion Sanders being named head coach at Jackson State (5:00). He explains why, even if the hire works out it is still good for Jackson State, and why he believes Deion could make for a really good college coach. Then he discusses Kentucky’s domination of the NBA bubble with Anthony Davis, Jamal Murray, Tyler Herro and others having success, and explains why this should help the Wildcats on the recruiting trail going forward.
Nick Coffey discusses college football and basketball: Next up, Aaron’s old friend Nick Coffey, a radio host in Louisville, joins the show (30:00). The two discuss where we are in college football, why the sport hasn’t felt the same without the SEC and whether the Big Ten’s late start to the season should keep them out of the playoff or not. Then they discuss college basketball bubbles and explain why schools like Kentucky and Louisville are hosting bubbles, even if the teams they’re playing against aren’t the biggest, best or most exciting matchups.
