On episode No. 1,151 (March 12, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about former UGA defensive end David Pollack being announced as a new member of the College Football Hall of Fame and the weird circumstances UGA’s athletic programs find themselves in as they – along with the rest of the sports world – battles the coronavirus.

Georgia football podcast: David Pollack’s HOF surprise welcome good news on weird day

Beginning of the show: The impact of the coronavirus pandemic will be felt by Georgia fans over at least the next few weeks after a flurry of cancelations have dominated the headlines over the last two days. In the midst of all that, ESPN surprised former UGA great David Pollack to let him know he is set to be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. I’ll explain on today’s show why the Pollack news couldn’t have come at a better time given the rest of the news.

10-minute mark: I share audio of UGA basketball coach Tom Crean and athletic director Greg McGarity on the coronavirus cancelations. (NOTE: Today’s show was recorded prior to the SEC halting play at its basketball tournament.)

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Mike Griffith joins the show to describe what it’s been like to be in Nashville with so much uncertainty surrounding the SEC and its athletic programs.

30-minute mark: I share audio of SEC commissioner Greg Sankey on the league’s response to the coronavirus.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater, and explain why fun jabs at football rivals still make sense even during challenging times.
