Georgia football podcast: UGA coaches apparently had perfect reaction to Owen Pappoe’s Auburn commitment

Beginning of the show: Georgia coaches weren’t that worried about 5-star linebacker Owen Pappoe’s decision to commit to Auburn on Tuesday. They plan to continue recruiting him, according to Pappoe’s own words spoken to DawgNation and SEC Country after his announcement ceremony. I’ll talk more about that subject on today’s show and discuss where UGA goes from here.

10-minute mark: I share more audio from Pappoe and clips from DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell and SEC Country’s Benjamin Wolk regarding Pappoe’s decision. 

15-minute mark: SEC Country’s Mike Johnson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Thoughts on Pappoe choosing Auburn?
  • How good of a fit will Kevin Harris (Alabama) and Wanya Morris (Tennessee) be with their new teams?
  • Thoughts on where Roquan Smith, Isaiah Wynn, Sony Michel, Nick Chubb and Lorenzo Carter were picked in the NFL draft?
  • How should undrafted players such as Trent Thompson and Davin Bellamy approach NFL camp as undrafted free agents?
  • Chubb described UGA as becoming a more “player-led” team. What does that mean?

30-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including Dennis Dodd releasing a surprising post-spring Top 25; Michel, Calvin Ridley and Derrius Guice being mentioned among favorites for NFL Rookie of the Year; Jeremy Pruitt making interesting comments about rivals UGA, Florida and Alabama; and a big surprise is revealed.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
