Bama-Texas thriller (2:00): Aaron opens the show by discussing the thriller between Alabama and Texas. Aaron explains why Bryce Young was the difference and asks whether we should be more concerned about Alabama or impressed by Texas?
Texas A&M and Notre Dame lose - and both losses are completely different (21:00): Next up, Aaron discusses Top 10 losses from Texas A&M and Notre Dame. He explains why he's officially done defending Jimbo Fisher and why it's time to deliver. He also explains why Notre Dame's loss only proves what we already knew about the Irish - and why it proves Marcus Freeman won't be judged by this season, but by what he does in the 2023 and 2024 off-seasons.
Scott Frost fired at Nebraska - what we went wrong and who's next (43:00)?: Aaron then reacts to the news that Scott Frost is out at Nebraska. He discusses what went wrong and why he believes the Nebraska job is better now than it was five years ago when Frost was hired.

An appreciation for Mark Stoops (1:00:00): Finally, Aaron wraps the show by giving an appreciation to Mark Stoops, who is beloved in Kentucky but underappreciated nationally. Saturday's win over Florida shows why Stoops is the most underrated coach in the country, and it also proved that there is plenty more for this Kentucky program to accomplish. Also, is Stoops the best program builder in recent college football history.
