Georgia football podcast: Booger McFarland says UGA should ‘feel really good’ about No. 7 ranking

Beginning of the show: The new College Football Playoff Top 25 rankings were released Tuesday night, and Georgia fell to No. 7, one spot below Auburn, which beat the Bulldogs last week. Some critics have suggested UGA’s lopsided defeat at Auburn indicated some major weaknesses that will eliminate UGA from playoff consideration. However, ESPN’s Booger McFarland sounded a different tone in some recent comments. I’ll share audio of what McFarland had to say and discuss on the Wednesday show how the Bulldogs can use the negative comments from other analysts as potential motivation.
