Spring football is officially over, which also means that we’re now one step closer to the start of actual games this fall. And in honor of it, it’s time to start up the Aaron Torres Sports summer podcast series with one of my favorite guests: Barrett Sallee of BleacherReport.com.

Simply put there is no one who knows this conference better than Barrett, and on Wednesday Barrett broke down all the major story lines from this spring, specifically in the SEC East (note we will do the SEC West in the coming weeks).
However before we could talk football, we needed to settle a movie debate once and for all, beginning with:
- An argument on the merits of both Major League and Major League II. Barrett explains why Major League is a classic, and I explain why Major League II is one of the more underrated sports movies our time. We also debate Willie Mays Hayes’ character, the genius behind “Black Hammer/White Lightning” and agree that Jack Parkman is the boss of all bosses.
- Moving to actual football conversation we begin in a strange spot… with the Kentucky Wildcats. Both Barrett and I have been thoroughly impressed with what Mark Stoops has done and also wonder what this program’s ceiling might be with him as coach.
- We next move to the other new coach in the conference, Butch Jones at Tennessee. Both Barrett and I have been impressed with what he’s done so far, but have concerns with his ability to get this program back to their winning tradition. Both of us agree that success will start with the run game.
