Georgia football podcast: George Pickens should help Jamie Newman’s UGA transition

Beginning of the show: Expectations are high for new Georgia quarterback Jamie Newman, and living up to the hype won’t necessarily be easy. However, the presence of Bulldogs wide receiver George Pickens — who established himself as one of the country’s top freshman receivers a year ago — should help Newman get comfortable at UGA and in the SEC. I’ll discuss more about that topic on today’s show.

10-minute mark: I discuss what UGA could be getting from graduate transfer tight end Tre McKitty — who celebrated his graduation from Florida State this week.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Connor Riley joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • The possible chemistry between Pickens and Newman
  • Thoughts on McKitty
  • A preview of four-star linebacker Barrett Carter’s commitment decision
  • And some thoughts on college football’s eventual return

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including the rest of the quarterbacks on Sporting News’ list of the sport’s best.
