Also, thoughts on Texas' historic loss to Kansas (and why Michigan fans should be paying close attention) plus a recap of the college hoops games of the weekend - Villanova-UCLA and Texas-Gonzaga. Here's a full rundown:
Oklahoma loses + the rest of the playoff picture: Aaron opens the show by discussing Oklahoma losing to Baylor. He explains what went wrong, the single most shocking thing about Oklahoma falling and why no Oklahoma is NOT out of the playoff picture (2:30). Then he discusses the rest of the playoff race and discusses the two teams that everyone is missing in the playoff conversation - and the one team that played them out of the playoff mix on Saturday (18:00).
A deep dive into Texas' embarrassing loss to Kansas: Next up, Aaron jumps into Texas' historic loss to Kansas (30:00). Aaron drops some crazy stats on the loss, and explains who is to blame for the loss - and it isn't Steve Sarkisian or the players.
