Aaron Torres and Nick Coffey stayed up live late on Tuesday to bring you a special, post-Champions Classic edition of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, and what a doozy it was after a stunning result in Indianapolis. Aaron and Nick talked about Duke’s stunning beat down of Kentucky, as well as Kansas’s win over Michigan State.
Here are some of the topics:
How did it get so bad for Kentucky: The guys wonder how it all went wrong? How much is John Calipari to blame with a line-up shake-up before the game? More importantly, where was the confidence that Kentucky played with in the Bahamas, and did we ever think we’d see this specific Kentucky team just get out-toughed mentally and physically like they did Tuesday? Finally, does Tuesday’s loss change the outlook for this Wildcats team?
How much does this change everyone’s opinion of Duke: Aaron and Nick ask whether Duke should be considered the favorite or not after this game. They also wonder how an opposing team can possibly match-up with R.J. Barrett and Zion Williamson. And what is the ceiling for this Duke team this season?
Finally, some Kansas-Michigan State talk: Finally, the guys break down the other game in Indianapolis, Kansas-Michigan State. The guys explain why they were pleasantly surprised by Kansas, and wonder what their ceiling is for the season ahead? Also, is it fair to still consider Tom Izzo an “elite” coach, or have his best days seemingly passed him by?
