It's Tuesday and you know what that means: A bonus edition of the Aaron Torres Podcast. Aaron opens by discussing college basketball's Orlando bubble being canceled - and why it doesn't necessarily mean what you think it does. He then talks about the Big Ten's absurd Covid-19 testing protocols after Wisconsin's Graham Mertz tests positive, and wraps with another edition of Aaron's favorite game: "Where Aaron was right, where Aaron was wrong." Here is a rundown of today's show:

College basketball's Orlando bubble is canceled - what now: Aaron opens the show by discussing the shocking news that college basketball's Orlando bubble was canceled (3:00). He explains why it happened, what's next and no, why it doesn't mean that out of conference games will be canceled in college basketball. If anything, it's the opposite. He also explains how on-campus events in places like Lexington, Louisville and Duke now take on even more significance.

The Big Ten's Covid-19 testing protocols may cost them a shot at the College Football Playoff: Next, Aaron transitions to the Big Ten, where news broke late Sunday that Wisconsin star quarterback Graham Mertz may have tested positive for Covid-19 (24:00). He explains how the Big Ten's absurd protocols - which require players who test positive to sit out 21 days - may cost teams their entire seasons and maybe even aa shot at the playoff. Finally, Aaron plays "Where Aaron was right, where Aaron was wrong" where he discusses Olivier Sarr, Kentucky basketball recruiting and why he was way, WAY wrong on Tennessee football (35:00).

It's Monday and you know what that means: A LOADED Aaron Torres Sports Podcast. Aaron opens the show by discussing the Big Ten's return to the field, and asks the question: Why does Jim Harbaugh never get any respect when he beats good teams?

There he goes into Arizona basketball's run-in with the NCAA and Kentucky receiving a commitment from five-star guard, Skyy Clark.

Harbaugh, Nebraska and the rest of the college football weekend: Aaron opens the show by discussing the return of the Big Ten, highlighted by Michigan's dominant win over Minnesota and wonders "Will Jim Harbaugh ever get any respect?"

Aaron then transitions to the rest of the Big Ten, where he wonders if Nebraska will ever figure things out under Scott Frost (18:00) and discusses controversial wins by Indiana over Penn State and Auburn over Ole Miss (30:00).

Arizona hears from the NCAA + Skyy Clark: Next up, Aaron transitions to college basketball, where Arizona has finally heard from the NCAA (38:30). Aaron explains why the Arizona case is so complicated and why, even after the weekend's news, he's not sold it means Sean Miller loses his job. Finally, he wraps with Kentucky picking up a commitment from another five-star guard, this one Skyy Clark and wonders whether or not he will stay in the high school class of 2022 or move up to 2021 (57:00).
