Georgia football podcast: ESPN wonders if Justin Fields could beat out Jake Fromm

Beginning of the show: An ESPN writer included the upcoming competition between returning starter Jake Fromm and incoming freshman Justin Fields in his list of quarterback battles to watch this spring. Is Fields truly a threat to unseat Fromm? I’ll discuss more about that on the Friday show and explain why SI’s Andy Staples description of Fields’ Year 1 role could end up being a more accurate assessment of UGA’s situation.

10-minute mark: I address what I think UGA fans’ expectations will be for 2018.

15-minute mark: DawgNation recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • The latest on 4-star linebacker Quay Walker
  • Whether Walker is a better fit for UGA than 4-star linebacker Otis Reese
  • An explanation of why UGA is giving late attention to 4-star safety Leon O’Neal
  • And whether UGA should still expect an official visit from 5-star cornerback Isaac Taylor-Stuart

35-minute mark: I take a look at a few more SEC headlines, including a new athletic director for Auburn, the possibility of wide receiver Jauan Jennings returning to Tennessee, a harsh assessment of Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts’ passing abilities, and some disappointing draft news for a couple of former LSU stars.

40-minute mark: I preview the significance of UGA’s basketball game vs. Auburn Saturday.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
