Georgia football podcast: Key stat explains why UGA is national championship contender

Beginning of the show: Georgia pitched its third shutout of the season Saturday against Missouri. I’ll explain on today’s show why that stingy defense is keeping UGA in the national championship race despite some lingering questions about the Bulldogs offense.

10-minute mark: I’ll share audio of UGA coach Kirby Smart’s update on the status of wide receiver Lawrence Cager, center Trey Hill, offensive lineman Cade Mays and right tackle Isaiah Wilson after the four were treated for injuries during the Missouri game.

15-minute mark: Former UGA All-American Jon Stinchcomb joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Thoughts on the win vs. Missouri
  • A preview of the Bulldogs’ upcoming trip to Auburn
  • And some thoughts on LSU’s win at Alabama.

30-minute mark: I’ll share my own thoughts on the LSU-Alabama game — including why LSU coach Ed Orgeron has been consistently underrated, why Tigers passing game coordinator Joe Brady might be the most important figure in college football, the possibility that Alabama’s program might’ve gotten soft and my explanation for why the viral video of Ed Orgeron from LSU’s postgame locker room might’ve been a sanctioned leak.

35-minute mark: I share audio of UGA running back D’Andre Swift and quarterback Jake Fromm discussing the Bulldogs’ offense.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
