Georgia football podcast: D’Andre Swift’s Heisman pursuit might be an uphill climb

Beginning of the show: ESPN shared the top favorites for the Heisman Trophy on its Twitter feed this week. Georgia running back D’Andre Swift wasn’t listed among the names, but on today’s show I’ll explain why maybe Swift should get more consideration than he’s currently getting — despite the fact some national writers are questioning whether a running back can still win the award.

10-minute mark: I’ll look back on the first-annual Eddies — the awards given out on this week’s edition of Before the Hedges to the top recruits and moments from UGA’s 2019 class.

15-minute mark: Former UGA and NFL tight end Randy McMichael joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Randy’s memories of going through the NFL Scouting Combine
  • The outlook for former UGA tight end Isaac Nauta in the NFL
  • Thoughts on the other juniors who left UGA early — including wide receivers Mecole Hardman and Riley Ridley
  • The value to the Bulldogs of seeing former UGA cornerback Deandre Baker taken near the top of this year’s draft
  • And some thoughts from Randy on how UGA could fare in 2019 now that Jake Fromm is the clear starter at quarterback

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including Tennessee not having any players at this year’s scouting combine, Missouri naming Kelly Bryant as starting quarterback, a comparison of how SEC teams would fare against AAF teams and an experienced Big 10 starting quarterback entering the transfer portal.

35-minute mark: I explain the process for winning a Road to Atlanta t-shirt.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
