Although the University of Miami is all anyone wants to talk about in the world of college football, as crazy as it sounds, there is some actual on the field business to discuss. Camps are open, players are winning and losing position battles and teams are gearing up for games that are now just days- not weeks, not months, but days- away.
So with that said, the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast is back, and this time, we’re heading away from the SEC, Big Ten or Pac-12 and hitting… the Mountain West?
That’s right, college football’s most underexposed league has some fascinating plotlines heading into the fall, and here to break them all down with us is Jeremy Mauss of the fantastic website MountainWestConnection.com.
Jeremy joined me for almost 45 minutes of some quality Mountain West goodness last night, discussing the following topics:
To listen to this podcast on the website, please click the green box below
- Why places like TCU, Air Force, Utah (who is obviously no longer in the conference) and others are able to keep their best and brightest coaches long-term, while schools in the Big East and other conferences have had no such luck.
- Who has the bigger target on their backs from opposing teams this fall: Newbie Boise State, or TCU, which is leaving the conference after this season?
- What do we need to know about new TCU quarterback Casey Pachall? Hell, how do you even properly pronounce his name?
- Can San Diego State maintain the high level they were at when Brady Hoke was there? Why Jeremy believes the Aztecs Ryan Lindley is as good Boise’s Kellen Moore
- Will Air Force improve on its nine wins last year? Can you make the case that their October slate of games is as tough as anyone’s in the country?
And much, much, more.
For anyone who is sick of talking about NCAA sanctions, conference realignment and just wants to get down and dirty with some football talk, there isn’t a better podcast for you. No one knows this conference as well as Jeremy Mauss, and he brings more knowledge to the table than- quite frankly- I even know what to do with.
