Torres Pod: Mel Tucker mega deal, Week 12 CFB + Early College Hoops Thoughts + Jim Calhoun Retires

We have a loaded Friday Aaron Torres Pod - as Aaron discusses the biggest stories in both college football and college hoops. Here is a full rundown: Mel Tucker extension + Week 12 CFB Preview: Aaron opens the show by discussing Mel Tucker's mega contract (2:00). No, Mel Tucker probably isn't worth the money being given to him, but it was still a move that Michigan State had to make. Plus, what's the ceiling of this program? Finally, Aaron previews Week 12 in college football, talking Michigan State-Ohio State, Oregon-Utah, Arkansas-Alabama and more (20:30). Week 1 College Hoops Thoughts + Jim Calhoun retires: Aaron wraps the show by discussing his thoughts on Week 1 of the college hoops season. He explains why he was wayyyy wrong on the Big East and wonders what the ceiling for teams like Seton Hall and Xavier is (42:00). Plus he talks about the disappointing Big Ten and after another big win (53:00), is BYU coach Mark Pope lining up to be the next head coach at Kentucky (1:02:00)? Finally he discusses Jim Calhoun, who retired from a D3 school earlier this week, explaining why Calhoun is the most underrated coach and best program builder in college hoops history (1:06:00).
