We have a loaded Aaron Torres Pod, as Aaron discusses the Russel Wilson trade and Calvin Ridley's idiotic decision to gamble on games. Then Aaron hits on college hoops, quickly discussing the Will Wade "update" before doing a deep dive into "Champ Week" in college hoops.
Russell Wilson trade (2:00): Aaron doesn't normally talk NFL in March, but when a Top 5 quarterback gets traded, we're discussing. Aaron understands why the Seahawks made the move, and the Broncos too. But what is so appealing to Wilson about Denver that he'd waive his no-trade clause?
Calvin Ridley suspended for gambling on games (17:45): Next up, Aaron talks about what he calls "the most interesting story in sports in a long time" Calvin Ridley getting suspended for gambling on games. He explains why Ridley is the one athlete he has little sympathy for, and why there are only two rules athletes have to follow to stay out of trouble. Why is gambling on your games such a big deal? And why there is never any circumstance where players should be allowed to bet, Aaron explains. He also briefly ends the segment hitting on the Will Wade "news" from Tuesday (35:00).
Conference by conference college hoops preview: Finally, it's Aaron's favorite week of the calendar - Champ Week, and he goes conference by conference discussing all the biggest storylines in all the marquee leagues. Who are his picks to win? What about bubble teams? And more - Aaron has you covered.
