Georgia football podcast: Justin Fields has classic response to massive UGA recruiting haul

Beginning of the show: I discuss the major recruiting victories for Georgia on Sunday, when the Bulldogs gained a commitment from 5-star running back John Emery Jr., plus pledges from talented prospects Rian Davis and Makiya Tongue. Fields had fantastic reactions to the commitments by Emery and Tongue, as seen here and here. This was quite the haul for Georgia, and the development serves as more proof of the program’s momentum.

10-minute mark: Georgia coach Kirby Smart had an interesting reaction on Twitter to the stellar recruiting news for his program. You can check out his reference to Georgia’s west end zone reveal here. I speak about how Smart is strategic with his social media messages, and this appears to be another instance of that type of messaging.

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

  • Towers’ thoughts on Georgia using the west end zone project to its advantage in recruiting
  • The possibility of former 5-star wide receiver Demetris Robertson playing with the Bulldogs this season. Towers already reported that Robertson will be practicing with Georgia soon
  • Items that Towers will watch for as Georgia prepares to open fall camp

40-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including Justin Watkins’ decision to leave Florida, more legal trouble for the Gators, Noah Cain releasing his top 6 and Alabama coach Nick Saban cautioning his quarterbacks after a noisy offseason for the Crimson Tide.

45-minute mark: I share the latest Dawg Day Q&A, which asks what is the most interesting storyline for UGA in the coming weeks. I also discuss how Georgia’s recruiting success has become an interest point for other SEC fans.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
