Georgia football podcast: Florida gets Malik Zaire, but UGA still should be SEC East favorite

Beginning of the show: I talk about the impact of Malik Zaire’s transfer to Florida. I’ll explain why it makes the Gators better, but probably won’t move Florida ahead of Georgia in the SEC East race.

10-minute mark: I talk more about RS Andrews’ DawgNation Invasion giveaway to the big one in South Bend, Ind., this September.

13-minute mark: DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics we cover include…

  • An evaluation of 4-star offensive lineman and UGA commit Warren Ericson
  • Whether UGA has reduced its standards for recruiting in 2018
  • A description of what UGA fans can expect from 2-star defensive back Rachad Wildgoose Jr.
  • 4-star linebacker Channing Tindall’s explanation for why UGA trails for him
  • And some impressive numbers for 3-star running back and UGA recruiting target Master Teague

28-minute mark: I look at some of the other SEC headlines, including the suggestion made by CBS Sports’ Tom Fornelli that Georgia could go only 7-5 this season, and Fornelli’s favorable view of Tennessee. Plus, ESPN’s Edward Aschoff ranks Georgia-Florida among the SEC’s “highest stakes” games for the upcoming season.

32-minute mark: I talk about the possibility of wrestling legend Ric Flair spending more time around UGA in the years ahead.
