Georgia football podcast: National media has lot to learn about these 7 UGA players

Beginning of the show: Two Georgia names are among the first half of Sports Illustrated’s list of top 100 players. I’ll explain on today’s show why there are at least seven others who are worthy of consideration, and quite likely better performers than their current level of fame would indicate.

10-minute mark: I attempt a fair and balanced assessment of whether Florida could truly threaten UGA in the SEC East, and share information about the VIP giveaway for DawgNation Days of Summer at Brasstown Valley Resort & Spa.

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

  • Jon’s thoughts on how UGA compares to Florida
  • An evaluation of the Bulldogs offensive line beyond highly-touted left tackle Andrew Thomas
  • And Jon’s recollection of attending SEC Media Days — which returns to Hoover, Ala. next week.

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including some rumors about how Alabama coach Nick Saban almost left for Texas in 2013, a new home for former Auburn quarterback Malik Willis and some thoughts on pressure facing some of the league’s second-year coaches.

35-minute mark: I discuss ESPN’s FPI data regarding UGA’s chances of enjoying an undefeated season.

End of show: I discuss Rian “Trouble Davis’ viral Twitter video and share the Gator Hater Updater.
