It’s Monday and after a week off, the Aaron Torres Podcast is BACK! Aaron discusses the transfer decisions of Kofi Cockburn and Marcus Carr, previews SEC Media Days and welcomes in Coastal Carolina football coach Jamey Chadwell, after last year’s 11-1 season!
Kofi Cockburn returns to Illinois and Marcus Carr to Texas: Aaron opens the show by discussing Kofi Cockburn’s return to Illinois (3:30). He explains why it’s good for Illinois and Kofi Cockburn, and also, just how serious was Kentucky in pursuit of the All-American center (hint: They weren’t serious)? Aaron also discusses Marcus Carr’s decision to go to Texas and why it makes the Longhorns a legit title contender in 2021-2022 (14:30).
SEC Media Days Preview: Next up, Aaron previews the unofficial start of college football – SEC Media Days (24:00)! He recaps everything you may have forgotten from SEC football season last year, and looks ahead to the biggest questions in 2021. Can Bama reload on offense? Is it *finally* Georgia’s year? How about A&M? And what about Josh Heupel at Tennessee – with thoughts on LSU, Ole Miss, Arkansas, Kentucky and much more.
Coastal Carolina coach Jamey Chadwell joins the show: Finally, Aaron wraps with a fun interview with Coastal Carolina football coach Jamey Chadwell (55:30). Remember, Coastal had a magic season last year – finishing 11-1 and the guys discuss it all. They also discuss what it’s like to have “normal” back in college football this year, what a 12-team playoff means for schools like Coastal and what it was like to put together a matchup with BYU last season – one of the games of the year – on three days notice.
