Georgia football podcast: National writer has harsh words for UGA AD Greg McGarity

Beginning of the show: Former Ohio State coach Thad Matta’s decision to turn down the Georgia job made athletic director Greg McGarity look “naive and unprepared,” according to Yahoo Sports’ Pete Thamel. I’ll discuss on the show whether that criticism of McGarity is fair.

Six-minute mark: I share audio from former UGA running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, as well as former Bulldogs linebackers Roquan Smith, Davin Bellamy and Lorenzo Carter, about DawgNation Appreciation.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Seth Emerson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Is Thad Matta’s decision a poor reflection on Greg McGarity?
  • Did UGA has reason to believe that Matta was healthy and wanted to coach again?
  • Other candidates for the UGA job?
  • Would Ron Hunter from Georgia State be a good choice?
  • What did Seth think of the harsh words from former coach Mark Fox about Greg McGarity?

30-minute mark: I look at some other SEC headlines, including LSU’s basketball coach Will Wade feuding with an in-state rival during an NIT matchup, LSU wide receiver Jonathan Giles thinking that the Tigers’ passing offense could be the best in the country, Auburn defensive lineman Dontavious Russell getting in a car wreck and Alabama adding preferred walk-on offensive lineman Alex Pearman.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and invite the audience to check out the DawgNation Daily Double.
