It’s an ALL-TIME episode of the Aaron Torres Podcast. Aaron recaps the entire NBA Draft, and is joined by Liberty coach Hugh Freeze to talk about the Flames’ dream season, as well as tough questions about job openings across college football. Here is a rundown of today’s show:
Your full NBA Draft recap: Aaron opens the show by discussing the story of the night, the 2020 NBA Draft (3:00). He starts with the opening picks, and wonders how could the Timberwolves take a guy who admitted that he doesn’t “love basketball” at No. 1 overall. He then moves to the Knicks, who had the steal of the night with Obi Toppin at No. 8. If there had been an NCAA Tournament, would Toppin have gone No. 1 overall (15:00). Finally Aaron asks: Did RJ Hampton cost himself millions by going to Australia (25:00)? After his draft stock tumbled, where are all the media who raved about that decision now?
Hugh Freeze joins the show: Next up, Liberty head coach Hugh Freeze makes his debut on the Aaron Torres Podcast (39:30). Coach Freeze and Aaron discuss Coach Freeze’s past at Ole Miss, Liberty’s meteoric rise and whether he is able to enjoy the “small stuff” now more than before. They also discuss why Liberty is a better job than people realize, this weekend’s game against NC State and the role that Nick Saban has played as a mentor to him. Finally, just days after the South Carolina job opened, Aaron asked if Freeze will consider other jobs this off-season.
