It’s an all new Aaron Torres Podcast, as Aaron recaps a handful of big stories in both college football and college basketball, including SEC football’s Covid outbreak, the potential return of Hugh Freeze to the SEC and thoughts on the first AP college hoops poll. Then he is joined by preseason All-American and potential No. 1 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, Cade Cunningham. Here is a full rundown:
SEC Covid outbreak, Hugh Freeze and college hoops: Aaron opens the show by discussing a Covid outbreak in the SEC, one which has already cancelled one game Saturday and has a few others on the ropes. How did the outbreak happen, can it be avoided and what can we learn from football to take to college hoops season (5:00)? Then, Aaron asks the question everyone is wondering: Could we see Hugh Freeze back in SEC… next year (16:30)? Finally, there is some college hoops talk. The first AP Poll is out, and Aaron tells you which teams are overrated and underrated, including Kentucky, UCLA, Iowa and LSU (29:30) and gives a short preview of the Big 12 (42:30).
Cade Cunningham joins the show: Finally, Aaron concludes the show with an interview with the No. 1 high school player in America, potential No. 1 pick in the draft and Oklahoma State star, Cade Cunningham (49:30). The guys discuss how the college basketball experience has been in the middle of a pandemic, what fans can expect from both Cunningham and Oklahoma State this season, and why Cunningham believes he is different than other one and done stars at non-traditional powers like Anthony Edwards and Ben Simmons. Cunningham also explains whether he seriously considered leaving Oklahoma State after they were hit with NCAA sanctions, and why he ultimately decided to remain a Cowboy.
