Georgia football podcast: ESPN explains why UGA’s a major national championship contender

Beginning of the show: Georgia is among the shortlist of favorites for the 2019 national championship according to ESPN’s preseason Football Power Index ratings. I’ll explain on today’s show why it’s seemingly easy to forget how well the Bulldogs compare to other national contenders.

10-minute mark: I’ll share audio of 4-star defensive back Jalen Kimber — who committed to UGA Wednesday.

15-minute mark: Former UGA linebacker Natrez Patrick joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • G-Day memories
  • The Bulldogs’ loaded crop of linebackers
  • UGA’s pursuit of more “havoc” plays this season
  • And Natrez’s thoughts on new defensive coordinator Dan Lanning and co-defensive coordinator Glenn Schumann

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including Texas A&M athletic director Scott Woodward moving to LSU as a replacement for recently-departed Joe Alleva, ESPN’s claim that South Carolina has this season’s toughest schedule and UGA fans’ attempt to rally around former Bulldogs tight end Luke Ford — who’s still awaiting an eligibility ruling from the NCAA after he transferred to Illinois.

35-minute mark: I share audio from former UGA offensive lineman Jon Stinchcomb from our Spring Game Preview at Marlow’s Tavern Wednesday night.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
