It’s Thursday and you know what that means, it’s time for another edition of the Aaron Torres Podcast. Aaron discusses the mess at Wisconsin, and why it could spell doom for Big Ten basketball, Trevor Lawrence potentially returning to Clemson for another season, and previews all the games in Week 9 of the college football season. Then he is joined by college football analyst Zach Smith to talk about Week 9. Here is a full rundown of today’s show:
Wisconsin mess, Trevor Lawrence return + Week 9 Preview: Aaron opens the show by discussing the mess at Wisconsin where the Badgers were forced to cancel their game at Nebraska (3:00). Aaron explains why this is just further proof of the Big Ten overreaching their hand in testing protocols, why Wisconsin won’t be the last team whose season goes up in flames and why this could be really, really bad news for Big Ten basketball. He then discusses Trevor Lawrence’s quote about potentially “returning” to Clemson and wonders – and wonders should he pull an Eli Manning and refuse to play for the Jets (20:00)? Finally, he gives a weekend preview, talking about the Ohio State-Penn State game, does Kentucky have a chance against Georgia and why he wouldn’t dare bet LSU and Auburn (29:30).
College football analyst Zach Smith joins the show: Next up, college football analyst, former Ohio State assistant and host of the “Menace 2 Sports” podcast Zach Smith joins the show (43:00). He discusses what it was like to coach for Urban Meyer, coach with Mike Vrabel and how Meyer built Ohio State into the juggernaut it is today. Then they transition to this weekend’s games, where they ask, does Penn State have any chance against Ohio State? Also, an incredible Urban Meyer story to close the show.
