Beginning of the show: 5-star linebacker Nakobe Dean seemingly is trending to Georgia lately, according to online chatter. Why? DawgNation’s recent interview with Dean’s mother could provide a clue. I’ll talk more about that and address the possibility that UGA could add another elite linebacker prospect. 

15-minute mark: Athlon Sports managing editor Mitch Light joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • UGA is ranked No. 3 in Athlon’s preseason poll. Thoughts?
  • What separates Alabama as the No. 1 team?
  • Florida is a surprise at No. 17. What is its outlook for the season?
  • Texas A&M comes in at No. 25. Expect a big turnaround by Jimbo Fisher in Year 1?
  • How much does Joe Burrow change the LSU situation?

30-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including: Jeremy Pruitt discussing new Tennessee quarterback Keller Chryst, Alabama scheduling a showdown with USC in 2020 and CBS weighing in on SEC schedule strength.

35-minute mark: I update the scenario involving 4-star defensive tackle Josh Belk’s expected UGA visit Thursday and share the latest Dawg Day Q&A.
