Podcast Episode 064: Discussing NCAA rules, Big East and UConn football vs. UConn women’s basketball

Aaron Torres joins the show

I do not know how many times we have discussed this topic but we do it once again. I’m referring of course to NCAA rules violations.

North Carolina received a notice of allegations from the NCAA. We’re still trying to figure out exactly what Oregon was paying Will Lyles for. Ohio State is a well-documented mess right now and nobody needs to be reminded of the Cam Newton saga relating to his father last season. As much of a mess as the NCAA may be right now, predicting the Big East this season can be just as messy.

Three new head coaches this season ensure that only one coach in the league (Greg Schiano at Rutgers) has been in the league for more than three seasons at his current school. One guy I know is firm in believing that until the Big East gets some stability in the coaching ranks the conference will continue to be cast in a shadow is Aaron Torres, of the self-named Aaron Torres Sports. He returns to the podcast to give his take on these two topics and ore, including some thoughts on his Connecticut Huskies following the school’s first trip to the BCS. He may be a UConn guy, but his opinions are fair and balanced when it comes to how fortunate the Huskies were a season ago. Can they possibly rely on the same luck and sequence of events to make a return trip to a big bowl game?

Don’t count on it.
