Georgia football podcast: A possible hint at how UGA plans to stop Notre Dame

Beginning of the show: Georgia has to be aware of Notre Dame quarterback Ian Book — a threat with both his arms and legs — when the Bulldogs host the Fighting Irish Saturday. I’ll explain on today’s show why stopping Book might require limiting his options, including being physical at the line of scrimmage with Notre Dame’s wide receivers.
