Georgia football podcast: Separating fact from fiction with JT Daniels’ UGA transfer

Beginning of the show: Former five-star quarterback from USC, JT Daniels, announced Thursday he was transferring to Georgia. The move was unexpected, and reaction to Daniels’ decision has been mixed. I’ll explain on today’s show why UGA fans should be excited about Daniels’ arrival and I try to clear up some confusion around some possible misconceptions about what is going on with the Bulldogs’ quarterback competition in 2020 and 2021.

10-minute mark: I make a bold prediction for UGA and Daniels in 2021.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show to discuss the Daniels news. Some of the topics addressed include…

  • How good the Bulldogs could eventually be with Daniels as the starter
  • What this means for UGA’s other transfer quarterback, Jamie Newman
  • How Daniels’ decision impacts recent recruits Carson Beck and D’wan Mathis
  • Reaction from five-star 2021 commit Brock Vandagriff
  • And more

35-minute mark: I take a look at other headlines including UGA coach Kirby Smart’s recent statement about how the Bulldogs will implement measures to protect players from the coronavirus once team activities begin again starting June 8, how the Texas governor’s decision to allow fans to attend sporting events at 25 percent capacity starting in June could impact college football and South Carolina coach Will Muschamp’s recent statement about his son, Jackson’s, decision to enroll as a walk-on quarterback at UGA.

40-minute mark: I discuss the UGA players most likely to lead the SEC in a statistical category this season.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
