Torres Pod: LSU ahead of schedule, Texas + A&M both take bad losses, Oregon rises, Jermaine Burton


Aaron opens the show by discussing Nick Saban's embarrassing Jermaine Burton comments, before switching gears and talking Week 8 on the field. Why LSU is ahead of schedule under Brian Kelly, Jimbo Fisher's biggest opponent is now the transfer portal. Plus, Texas takes a bad loss, Clemson's QB issues and Oregon is rising. Here's a full rundown:

Quick Jermaine Burton reaction (3:00): Aaron starts with some quick reaction to Nick Saban's Jermaine Burton comments, and explains why Saban doesn't owe anyone an explanation - but why it looks like he is prioritizing winning over punishing his player for striking a woman.

LSU ahead of schedule (16:00): From there, Aaron explains why LSU is ahead of schedule after a big win over undefeated, No. 7 ranked Ole Miss, and why this is proof that Brian Kelly was always the right fit for the Tigers.

Texas A&M and Texas both lose - and are both looking for answers (29:00): Aaron continues the show by discussing losses for Texas A&M and Texas. He explains why A&M's biggest opponent going forward isn't Bama or LSU but the transfer portal, and why Texas fans have every right to be frustrated after this loss (44:00).

Finally, he wraps by discussing if Clemson has a legit QB controversy and why Oregon's win is bigger for the Pac-12 than you realize.
