Georgia football podcast: ESPN gives reason for excitement about UGA’s defense

Beginning of the show: ESPN rated Georgia’s front seven among the best in the SEC, but expressed some concern about returning defensive tackle Trent Thompson. I explain on today’s show why both Thompson and UGA should be just fine this year.

10 minute mark: DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • What matters most to 5-star quarterback Justin Fields as he reevaluates his recruitment after decommitting from Penn State
  • The amount of contact schools like UGA are having with Fields
  • How Fields compares to 5-star quarterback Trevor Lawrence
  • What impact UGA offensive coordinator Jim Chaney will have on Fields’ recruitment
  • Assessing UGA’s chances with 5-star defensive end KJ Henry
  • The latest on 4-star wide receivers Marquez Ezzard and Kearis Jackson
  • And explanation of why 4-star linebacker Quay Walker chose Alabama

35 minute mark: I take a look at some of the other SEC headlines including Walker choosing Alabama, Tennessee winning the commitment of a running back for its 2020 class, and Paul Myerberg’s list of the best modern college football coaches.

End of show: I talk about former Georgia coach Mark Richt taking a minor swipe at Clemson during a ceremony in Miami, Fl.
