Georgia football podcast: Andrew Thomas has national championship goals for UGA

Beginning of the show: Brandon Adams discusses the rise of offensive lineman Andrew Thomas and how the player is talking like a leader after Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart challenged him to embrace a leadership role. Thomas has pushed Georgia’s offensive line to be more physical. The presence of Thomas isn’t challenging quarterback Jake Fromm’s leadership. Instead, Thomas is Fromm’s ally in the pursuit of the same goal: a national championship.

12-minute mark: Adams discusses how Sports Illustrated’s Chris Johnson views Fromm’s improvement in the passing game. To Johnson, it’s reasonable to project Fromm will make a not-insignificant leap as a passer during the quarterback’s second season.

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

  • Johnson’s thoughts on if Thomas is ready at left tackle
  • Whether Fromm is a top 10 quarterback
  • How much quarterbacks set the tone for offseason workouts
  • How ESPN’s Booger McFarland wants more “swagger” from Kirby Smart

35-minute mark: Adams looks at other headlines from around the SEC, including how Auburn’s Jarrett Stidham, Missouri’s Drew Lock, South Carolina’s Jake Bentley and Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa received praise from USA Today. In addition, Adams speaks about how Stidham is looking forward to more freedom, and Adams addresses how Jimbo Fisher ripped Kevin Sumlin’s office at Texas A&M.

40-minute mark: Adams unveils the latest Dawg Day Q&A.

End of Show: Adams updates the Gator Hater Countdown.
