Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 89: College Football Week 8 + G-League

A new episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast is LIVE. Today Aaron is joined by his good friend Nick Coffey to recap college football’s Week 8 and talk about the G-League offering $125,000 contracts to rookies. Plus, they prepare you for the program’s biggest guest EVER who will appear on Thursday’s show. First up though is college football, as the guys break down:
Purdue’s Stunning Win against Ohio State: The guys react to Purdue’s shocking and dominating win Saturday against Ohio State. Aaron explains why he saw this one coming, and wasn’t shocked by the result. The guys also ask how this could shake up the playoff picture in the Big Ten and is Michigan now the favorite to win the conference? Finally, Nick weighs in on what Purdue’s victory means for Louisville – and their potential pursuit of Jeff Brohm as the school’s next head coach.
The Rest of Week 8 in College Football + UCF talk: The guys react to the rest of the Week 8 college football chatter, including an in-depth conversation on Central Florida. Yes, the competition isn’t good. But after 20 straight wins dating back to last season, is it finally time to consider Central Florida as a legitimate playoff contender?
G-League Select Contract: Finally, the guys react to the G-League’s new $125k contract to high school players who don’t want to go to college, news which broke right after the guys taped the last episode. Coffey and Torres get into why this is a risky move for all high school basketball players, and why, at least for the time being, it probably won’t have a major impact on college basketball. Will a player be willing to risk his draft stock to play against grown men? What about the travel in the G-league? For the time being, college is still a better opportunity for most players.
