The Aaron Torres Sports Podcast Ep. 93: NBC Sports’ Rob Dauster Previews the Champions’ Classic

We are just days away from basketball season beginning, so what better way to get you ready for Kansas-Michigan State and Duke-Kentucky than with a new episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast. Aaron is joined by NBC’s Rob Dauster to preview the big games, plus talk about other storylines across college basketball. He also talks college football and wraps by discussing his preseason field of 68 in college hoops, which was posted on Friday.
Here is a full rundown of the show:
Aaron talks a wild weekend in college football: Aaron recaps ‘Bama’s dominant win, but just because they won big at LSU, it doesn’t mean that other teams aren’t capable of beating them. He also recapped Georgia-Kentucky and explains why – even in a loss – the Wildcats have nothing to be disappointed about. And finally he takes a look at the playoff picture: Can the SEC still get two teams in? Does Notre Dame have to go undefeated to get a spot? And a truly wacky situation in the Big 12.
A Champions Classic preview with Rob Dauster: Next up, Aaron welcomes in NBC Sports’ Rob Dauster to discuss the mega-showdown this week in college basketball + all the major storylines heading into the season. They open with a key injury at Gonzaga, and how it could literally shake up the entire season. Then they talk about the big games. Rob explains why he has some concern with Kentucky’s lineups and how it could be manifested against Duke. Also, why he has Kansas No. 1 in the country coming into the season.
Finally, Aaron wraps by talking more college hoops: He breaks down his entire field of 68, and why he thinks it will be another big year for the power conferences. He then answers user-submitted questions and gives his picks for the Champions Classic!
