Georgia football podcast: Jamie Newman can help usher in new era for UGA

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart has typically handled his quarterbacks in a similar fashion to how he treats players at other positions. However, I’ll explain on today’s show why Smart would be wise to do something with Newman that he hasn’t done with his previous signal callers: Name him as starting quarterback at the beginning of spring practice.

10-minute mark: I’ll share audio of what quarterbacks coach Quincy Avery said about Newman.

15-minute mark: Former UGA All-American Jon Stinchcomb joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • An evaluation of Newman
  • Thoughts on Fromm’s departure
  • Reaction to former UGA offensive lineman Cade Mays transfer to Tennessee and attempt to gain immediate eligibility
  • And a preview of Monday night’s national championship game between Clemson and LSU

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including my own thoughts on the title game, a recap of how the league performed during bowl season and I examine Athlon Sports’ Way-Too-Early Top 25 — which had UGA eighth, a spot behind Florida.

35-minute mark: I discuss why Mecole Hardman’s arrival at Arrowhead Stadium for his first playoff with the Chiefs went viral, and why his growing fame also benefits UGA.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
