Jared Lorenzen is today's guest on 'The Aaron Torres Sports Podcast' just a few days after appearing on ESPN to discuss his weight loss challenge. Lorenzen gives a compelling interview with Aaron hitting on a number of different topics, including a discussion on what "rock bottom" was, his first steps, and how he will measure "success." But first, Aaron is joined by his good friend Nick Coffey to hit on a few other topics, including: A recap of Aaron's interview Enes Kanter: The guys discuss last week's compelling interview with former Kentucky Wildcat Enes Kanter (if you haven't heard it, you can click here). The guys discuss Enes' thoughts on NBA super teams, and also the fact that he was willing to sit out a year at Kentucky as part of his "punishment" from the NCAA and return for his sophomore year. Would Kentucky have won the title without him in 2011? And how good could the 2012 Kentucky Wildcats have been had Kanter actually played his sophomore year alongside Anthony Davis? Scuttlebutt about expanding the College Football Playoff: Next up, Aaron and Nick briefly discuss scuttlebutt that came out of Big Ten Media Days about expanding the College Football Playoff. After Jim Harbaugh and Scott Frost both talked expansion - is it time to move the playoff to eight teams? On the one hand, we can rarely get to four teams good enough to make the playoff, now we're going to double it? Also, what about the Central Florida's of the world who have no chance to win the championship as things currently stand? Next up, Aaron welcomes former Kentucky Wildcat and Super Bowl champ Jared Lorenzen to the show. Jared recently appeared on ESPN discussing his weight loss struggles, after once tipping the scales at 500 lbs. He and Aaron have a deep conversation, discussing: Why Jared decided to make a change: Jared discussed what into his change.

The first steps on his road to improvement: Jared discusses the first steps on his road to improvement. He explained how his "whole life" had to change for his weight loss to kick in. Also what is his daily routine, and why small goals are key to his success. His goals and a message for anyone out there who may be struggling with weight loss: Finally, Jared discusses what his "goals" are, and why it has nothing to do with how many pounds he loses.
