Georgia football podcast: Unsung UGA hero gets massive praise from anonymous coach

Beginning of the show: Georgia center Lamont Gaillard is the best player in the country at his position according to an anonymous coach quoted by Sports Illustrated. I’ll talk on today’s show about why a solid anchor in the middle of UGA’s offensive line will be helpful as the Bulldogs transition Andrew Thomas to left tackle, work in a new starter at right tackle and hold intense competition at both guard spots. I’ll also share exclusive interviews with former Georgia quarterbacks David Greene and DJ Shockley discussing this year’s competition between Jake Fromm and Justin Fields.

10-minute mark: I share some highlights from the debut of the all-new Before the Hedges including junior college cornerback DJ Daniel explaining what he likes about UGA ahead of his commitment decision scheduled for next Thursday and a clip from recent UGA commit Zion Logue about how he views the fit for him in Athens.

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

  • How do players deal with summer heat during practices?
  • What is the mindset for the incoming freshman that are looking for playing time?
  • James Cook has been turning heads during practices.  Who popped early during your days at Alabama?
  • What do you expect from Zamir White coming off ACL surgery?
  • Thoughts on the Jalen Hurts/Tua Tagovailoa controversy?

35-minute mark: I look at other headlines from around the SEC, including Nick Saban responding to Jalen Hurts’ comments, 5-star linebacker Ale Kaho transferring from Washington to Alabama, LSU suspending linebacker Tyler Taylor, and fast food chain Hardee’s takes a jab at Butch Jones on Twitter.

40-minute mark: Chip Towers highlights Rodrigo Blankenship and the strength of the UGA kicking game as a part of our Own the East video series presented by Georgia’s Own Credit Union.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown
