Georgia football podcast: Jermaine Johnson’s message about physical condition is good news for UGA

Beginning of the show: One of the candidates for a breakout season for Georgia is linebacker Jermaine Johnson — who recently tweeted that he’s never been in better shape after apparently maintaining a disciplined workout routine during the coronavirus lockdown. I’ll explain on today’s show why Johnson’s message could mean big things for him as well as the Bulldogs defense.
