Georgia football podcast: Media’s fascination with Jake Fromm-Justin Fields competition continues

Beginning of the show: Sports Illustrated and ESPN are the latest media entities to suggest incoming freshman quarterback Justin Fields could push incumbent starter Jake Fromm for playing time in 2018. Could that happen? Maybe, but if it does, there’s one thing Georgia coach Kirby Smart said repeatedly about Fromm a year ago that we’ll also need to hear about Fields for that to be true. I’ll explain more about that subject on the Thursday show.

10-minute mark: We’ll take an interesting look at the in-home visit Smart took with 4-star defensive tackle Rick Sandidge Wednesday night.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Seth Emerson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Seth’s thoughts on Fromm and Fields
  • A look at the rising UGA football ticket prices
  • How rising sophomore linebacker Nate McBride fits into the Bulldogs’ plans this season
  • Why UGA still projects to be strong at outside linebacker despite the loss of Lorenzo Carter and Davin Bellamy
  • The possibility that defensive tackle Tyler Clark and defensive end Jonathan Ledbetter could emerge as breakout stars
  • Whether UGA’s offensive line could be one of the strengths of the team in 2018
  • And what the Georgia basketball win vs. Florida means for the conversation around coach Mark Fox and the team’s NCAA Tournament hopes

30-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including a possible strong close to Florida’s recruiting class, a bold statement about a tandem of LSU defenders, and LSU coach Ed Orgeron’s attempt to win the recruiting battle for quarterback James Foster before Signing Day.

35-minute mark: I round up some of the comments from around SEC Country about where recruiting experts think 4-star linebacker Quay Walker is heading when he announces his college decision next week.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
