Georgia football podcast: LSU coach Ed Orgeron praises D’Andre Swift

Beginning of the show: Georgia running back D’Andre Swift is similar to former LSU star Derrius Guice according to Tigers coach Ed Orgeron. I’ll share audio from Orgeron on today’s show on the subject of Swift, Jake Fromm and a weird clip where Orgeron might’ve accidentally given the Bulldogs’ defense some bulletin board material.

10-minute mark: Former UGA quarterback DJ Shockley recently sat down for an interview with DawgNation and shared details of his relationship with UGA freshman quarterback Justin Fields. I’ll share some of what Shockley had to say on that subject.

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

  • The possible emergence of freshmen — including linebacker Channing Tindall and defensive tackle Jordan Davis — for UGA’s defense
  • Reaction to elite recruits — Christopher and Myles Hinton — attendance at the Vanderbilt game.
  • A discussion on 4-star linebacker JD Bertrand’s decision to de-commit from Georgia
  • An update on 5-star wide receiver Jadon Haselwood — who visited Miami Saturday
  • Thoughts on UGA’s recent offer to another 2019 quarterback
  • And a preview of 4-star safety Lewis Cine’s expected commitment announcement Wednesday

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including reported turmoil at Auburn, reaction to Alabama’s seemingly cozy relationship with ESPN, and thoughts on other SEC games from the weekend — including South Carolina’s win vs. Missouri and Kentucky suffering its first loss of the season at Texas A&M.

40-minute mark: I share audio of UGA coach Kirby Smart discussing the environment his team will face at LSU and the ways in which the Tigers offense has evolved under Orgeron.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and invite DawgNation Daily listeners and viewers to join us tonight at Marlow’s — Northlake for our Big Game Preview.
