It’s Monday and we’ve got a jam-packed Aaron Torres Podcast. Aaron discusses Kentucky basketball’s coaching staff finally coming together and what it means for the rest of college hoops, Jimbo vs. Nick Saban and Saban signing two elite players via the transfer portal in the last week. Finally, he gives a disappointing update as the University of Hartford fights to save DI athletics. Here is a full rundown of today’s show:
Kentucky hoops finally gets its coaching staff in place: Aaron opens the show by discussing the big news in college hoops: Kentucky signing two of the elite assistant coaches in college basketball, Orlando Antigua and Chin Coleman (2:00). He explains why this is one of the biggest moves of John Calipari’s career, why he’s already impressed by the two assistant’s demeanor and why this is the first step to making Kentucky, the Kentucky that we once knew.
Jimbo vs. Nick Saban, Saban dominates the portal: Next up Aaron transitions to college football, and the fun verbal back-and-forth between Jimbo Fisher and Nick Saban last week (17:00). Aaron explains why it is good for both schools and college football. Aaron also breaks down some pretty big news as Alabama received commitments from two of the best players in the transfer portal in the last week, most recently, former Tennessee linebacker Henry To’o To’o (26:00). Aaron explains why it should be scary for college football fans that Saban is now embracing the portal and can plug the few weaknesses that he has via the transfer portal.
Finally Aaron wraps by discussing the Universiy of Hartford’s idiotic decision to drop from DI to D3 after the school’s NCAA Tournament run – and why the decision isn’t backed by facts at all (36:00). He also invites the President of the school on the show for a formal discussion about the topic.
