(Be sure to follow Aaron on Twitter @Aaron_Torres) It’s another day and it’s time to preview another bowl game here on the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, as on Thursday I welcomed my good friend and old Texas A&M Aggie Brandon Leone to the show to preview the Cotton Bowl.   To listen to the podcast on this website, click the green box above To download the podcast straight from iTunes, please click here To subscribe to the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, please click here To listen to the podcast on your iPhone or Android please click here Brandon is a former Texas A&M running back and also previously covered the team for the website TexasAgs.com, and on Thursday he shared plenty of insight in the lead-up to Friday night’s match-up with Oklahoma Brandon and I discussed the following subjects: - The arrival of Texas A&M’s football program in 2012. When did Brandon realize the Aggies were “for real” and what was the biggest surprise (outside Johnny Manziel of course) about Texas A&M’s season to him?   - Speaking of Manziel, will he be focused headed into this weekend’s game? Manziel has become a semi-celebrity since the last time A&M took the field and Brandon and I wonder whether he’s spent too much time away from football in recent weeks. - Also, for an offense that relied so much on timing and rhythm, what will the long layoff do for the Aggies? Given Manziel’s style of play, could it actually help A&M? Also, how much does the loss of offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury hurt the Aggies? - On the opposite sidelines, what about Oklahoma? For all the talk about the Aggies, Oklahoma seems to be getting lost in the shuffle in the lead-up to this game. Will they come out with a renewed sense of focus because of it? - And finally, Brandon shares his prediction for the game. Folks if you’re looking to get some hard-hitting insight into this Friday’s big game, than this is the show you’ll want to listen to. No one knows the Aggies’ program and the game of football quite like Brandon does and this is one you’re not going to want to miss.   As for accessing the show, well you can always download it straight from iTunes by clicking here or by searching for the “Aaron Torres Sports Podcast.” You can also subscribe to the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast by clicking here.
