After ESPN reported Monday morning that both Texas and Texas A&M are interested in renewing their football rivalry, the first thing I asked myself is: “Why?” What exactly does Texas A&M have to gain by playing this game? Times have changed, and Texas is no longer the premiere program in the state — Texas A&M […]
Earlier this week, I did a big feature on Kentucky power forward Karl Anthony Towns for FoxSports.com. For those who follow college hoops, they know Towns as the star of Kentucky’s basketball team, and a future NBA lottery pick. But for those who know him, he is much more: A 4.0 student, with dreams of […]
It’s amazing, as much as time has changed, and the years have gone on, one thing in college basketball remains consistent: Everybody hates Duke. North Carolina fans hate Duke. Kentucky fans hate Duke. UConn and Arizona….yup, they hate Duke too. Earlier this week, I wrote a story for FoxSports.com, on 15 Reasons It’s Still Ok […]
On Monday, Aaron did a quick article for FoxSports.com, wondering why John Calipari didn’t win National Coach of the Year? As he discussed, the snub is more about the voters who voted for him, not Calipari himself. You can read the article here.
Earlier this week, Aaron joined his old friends at ESPN Lexington to break down the second weekend of NCAA Tournament games. Not surprisingly, the interview had a Kentucky-heavy twist, as he discussed the team that would give Kentucky the toughest match-up, why a Duke-Kentucky title game would basically be the best thing ever, and why […]
Like everyone else in America, I decided to share my bracket and tournament picks this morning. My Final Four is as follows: Kentucky, Wisconsin, Iowa State and Michigan State, with Kentucky beating Iowa State for the National Championship. Why did I make those picks? Click on my Facebook page for explanation. Also, my full bracket […]
Aaron joined his old friend Allen Kenney’s at BlatantHomerism.com earlier this week to preview the Midwest and West regions of the NCAA Tournament. The two chatted about the committee’s performance this season, if anyone can beat Kentucky, and why Texas — yes, Texas — could make a surprising run in the Big Dance. Plus plenty on a wild, […]
On Saturday, Aaron appeared on Kentucky Women’s Talk Sports. He and host Maria Taustine discussed his article on the 2010 Kentucky Wildcats as well as this year’s team, and why colleges now, in 2015 have no choice but to recruit one-and-done guys if they want to compete for National Championships.
On Tuesday, the guys at ESPN Radio in Lexington were nice enough to have me on, to discuss my oral history of the 2009-2010 Kentucky Wildcats. We talked about the origins of the article, how the 2010 team compares to the 2015 team, and why John Calipari might be the last “honest” coach in college […]
Earlier today I mentioned that Aaron Torres Sports has undergone a bit of change: This site will no longer be a place for only original articles and information, but instead, it will also be a home for everything that I’m working on; articles, interviews, radio spots whatever. The first post here is on an article […]
A quick note from Aaron: Lately, I’ve been getting asked the same question quite a bit: Aaron, where can I find all your work? You write for so many different outlets, at so many different times, on so many different subjects, that I never know where to look for all your stuff. For the longest […]
An undefeated college basketball season has not been accomplished since 1976. The Indiana Hoosiers went 32-0 and is the last division I college basketball team to accomplish an undefeated season. The 2014-15 Kentucky Wildcats appear more than capable of challenging that feat. Kentucky notched its 26th win last Tuesday, en route to accomplishing the best […]
For me, the story of the 2014-2015 Ohio State Buckeyes — correction, your 2015 National Champion Ohio State Buckeyes — actually begins in 2007. Most Ohio State fans know where I’m going with this (if you don’t just bear with me), but looking back, it really is shocking just how similar Monday night’s title game […]
Before we start discussing Monday night’s championship game, I think it’s important that we first hit on the single most compelling narrative that developed throughout this entire college football season: It’s the on-going fact that (despite what you may or may not read on the internet), yes folks, I am an idiot. No, I don’t […]
