Georgia football podcast: UGA won’t be slowed by former 5-star signee’s apparent departure

Beginning of the show: Georgia linebacker Brenton Cox is apparently no longer with the Bulldogs. I’ll explain on today’s show why UGA will likely be fine even with some attrition to its linebacker corp, and I’ll address why earning Cox’s signature as part of the nation’s No. 1 signing class in 2018 should still count as a recruiting win despite the fact Cox time at UGA has likely been cut short.

10-minute mark: I share audio from new UGA offensive coordinator James Coley and defensive coordinator Dan Lanning.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Jeff’s thoughts on Cox’s apparent departure
