Georgia football podcast: Sam Pittman’s departure provides opportunity for UGA to reinvent itself

Beginning of the show: Sam Pittman was justifiably revered during his three seasons at Georgia as one of the top offensive line coaches in college football, and his decision to leave UGA to become Arkansas head coach will obviously leave a void to be filled for the Bulldogs. However, I’ll explain on today’s show why Pittman’s absence also creates an opportunity for UGA to remake its offense into something more suited for the modern game.

10-minute mark: I’ll share examples of UGA recruits and their families doubling down on their support of Georgia after the SEC championship game loss to LSU.

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

  • Thoughts on Pittman’s departure
  • An evaluation of how much UGA coach Kirby Smart should consider changing UGA’s offense
  • And thoughts on the loss to LSU

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including South Carolina hiring Mike Bobo as offensive coordinator, Ole Miss announcing Lane Kiffin as head coach and Missouri announcing its hire as well.

35-minute mark: I discuss candid comments from Smart about his teams excitement about returning to the Sugar Bowl.

End of show: I express some condolences to one of our producers, Connor Riley, on the loss of a close friend, and share the Gator Hater Updater.
