The Aaron Torres Sports Podcast is back, as we break down the biggest story in sports – the ever-evolving circus surrounding Urban Meyer. Aaron is joined by Fox Sports’ Tim Brando to break down the whole mess. But first, Aaron welcomes on his buddy Nick Coffey to both discuss the Urban Meyer debacle and preview Kentucky’s trip to the Bahamas. Here are today’s show topics:
The latest on Urban Meyer: Nick and Aaron take a deep dive into the latest with the Urban Meyer at Ohio State. They update us on what we know now, and why the legal ramifications make this story less cut-and-dried than it seems. Can a technicality save Meyer? Plus, if Meyer did report Zach Smith to his superiors, can you really blame him for keeping Smith on staff?
A preview of the “Big Blue Bahamas” trip: Next up, the guys discuss what they’re most excited about with the Kentucky trip to the Bahamas this week. Aaron wants to see how Reid Travis performs in his first time wearing blue, while Nick wants to get to know some of the more unfamiliar names on the roster. Plus, going up against such good competition, the guys admit that Kentucky could lose, but explain why that would be OK.
Next up, Aaron welcomes FOX’s Tim Brando to the show. Brando is one of the iconic voices of college football, and takes a deep dive into the Meyer mess starting with:
Meyer’s future at Ohio State: Brando explains why he believes that Urban Meyer will survive at Ohio State. He also wonders whether the timing of Meyer’s statement means that AD Gene Smith could survive this scandal as well.
Why do these kind of scandals only happen in college football: Aaron wonders why – between Bobby Petrino, Hugh Freeze and Urban Meyer – these scandals only seem to happen in college football. Tim gives a surprising answer to the question.
Tim’s preseason predictions: Tim tells us who his sleeper teams are, why he had a surprise winner in the Big 10 even before the Urban Meyer mess, and why he believes it’s time to expand the playoff to eight teams!
