Well folks, football season over, which means it’s time to sit back and spend the next six weeks fully embracing college hoops. Here at Aaron Torres Sports, I’ve tried to help ease you into the season with Monday’s College Basketball Primer Part I (the second part coming later this week) as well yesterday’s column on UConn’s Unceremonious Downfall.

But with that, it’s always good to get a second opinion on college hoops, which is exactly what I’ve elected to do on this edition of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast. That’s why on Tuesday, I welcomed one of the top young bloggers in the college hoops game- Rob Dauster of BallInIsAHabit.net- onto the show.
Rob and his partner in crime Troy Machir at BIAH just finished an epic three-week college basketball road trip, and he talked about all of that, plus more in the podcast. Amongst the subjects we discussed included:
- The origins of BallInIsAHabit.net. How did it come about, how did it evolve, and what’s next?
- The origins of the BIAH Road Trip. Logistically, what goes into putting together a three-week cross country trip? What were some of the “must stops?” Were there any places that the guys wanted to get to, but just didn’t have the time for?
- Some volunteer work the BIAH guys did in Joplin, MO, and why even months after a tornado devastated the state, people are still feeling the after effects.
- Looking across the college basketball landscape this year, who are a few teams outside the Top 10 that people need to keep an eye on. Who are teams that people shouldn’t trust?
- With Kentucky, Syracuse and North Carolina atop the sport right now, how do you beat those teams? Does each have a weakness? If so, what is that weakness?
- Finally, Rob shares his story of an epic Super Bowl Sunday, and how he was able to hold onto one of his most prized possessions: His beard.
Folks, whether you’re ready or not, college hoops season is upon us. So rather than running from it, embrace it, and enjoy talking about the sport with Rob and I. Few know the sport better than he does, and when you add in his epic tales from the road, it makes for a fun 35 minutes or so of podcasting glory.
As always, there are plenty of ways to download the podcast.
Also, if you’re not following on Twitter you should be, and while you’re there, give Rob a follow too. Good guy, and few know their hoops like he does. Also be sure to download the Aaron Torres Sports App for your iPhone or Android if you haven’t already.
Finally, thanks again to Rob for stopping by, and thank you all for listening.
Until next time…
