Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 309: Olivier Sarr is ELIGIBLE!! CFB weekend preview + Cole Cubelic joins the show

We’ve got ourselves a VERY special Aaron Torres Podcast, as Aaron is recording just moments after Kentucky center Olivier Sarr was declared eligible. He discusses Sarr and what it means for Kentucky and their pursuit of a national title, before transitioning to college football where he previews the weekend and talks OBJ’s “ban” from LSU. Then he is joined by ESPN’s Cole Cubelic for a fun conversation on the state of college football.

Olivier Sarr is eligible + A weekend college football preview: Aaron opens the show with breaking news that Kentucky center Olivier Sarr has been ruled eligible (4:00). Aaron explains why the news is so big and what it means for Kentucky – which he believes is now the SEC title favorite, a preseason Top 5 team and an absolute national title contender. He then previews the Big 12-SEC Challenge matchups (16:00). Finally, Aaron turns his attention to college football, where he previews all the big weekend games including two showdowns on the Big Ten’s opening weekend (24:30). Finally, he hands out his college football gambling picks and discusses Odell Beckham’s “ban” from LSU football (37:00).

ESPN’s Cole Cubelic joins the show: Next up, Aaron is joined by one of his favorite guests, ESPN’s Cole Cubelic (43:30). With the Big Ten back this weekend, the guys discuss the long road for college football, what it’s been like to be in a stadium this season and all of the logistical hurdles teams are going through to play games this season. Finally, they wrap by talking actual, on the field football staff and ask the question: Can anyone catch Clemson and Bama this season?
