Georgia football podcast: DJ Shockley says UGA ‘going to have something for Auburn’

Beginning of the show: Will Georgia take a different offensive approach vs. Auburn in its rematch Saturday in the SEC Championship Game? Former UGA quarterback DJ Shockley ― a participant in the Bulldogs’ last SEC Championship Game win in 2005 ― says that’s the case, and Shockley thinks that will be enough to lead the Bulldogs to victory. I’ll talk more about that on the Friday show and discuss the emotions running through DawgNation the day before the game.

10-minute mark: I share audio from UGA coach Kirby Smart reflecting on the significance of playing for an SEC championship in his second season.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics discussed include:

  • What an appearance in the College Football Playoff would mean for UGA
  • The mindset of UGA fans who remember coming up a few yards and a few seconds short the last time the Bulldogs appeared in the SEC Championship Game
  • Jeff’s article looking back on freshman quarterback Jake Fromm before he arrived at UGA
  • And a preview of the DawgNation Invasion tailgate on Saturday

30-minute mark: I take a look at a few other SEC headlines, including John Currie being removed as Tennessee athletic director, Florida coach Dan Mullen’s name appearing in a report about Ole Miss and its NCAA issues, the chances Mike Leach is a candidate at Tennessee, and the latest update from Auburn coach Gus Malzahn regarding the Tigers’ injured running back Kerryon Johnson.

35-minute mark: I look at how DawgNation Daily listeners and viewers are using the #DawgNationRetaliation hashtag.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and invite DawgNation to join us for our Dixie Vodka Postgame Show Saturday.
