Georgia football podcast: SEC should lead way in fight to save college football season

Beginning of the show: Rumors have swirled that the Big Ten wants to cancel the upcoming season, and the PAC-12 could follow its lead. These reports have motivated a growing number of players to unite on social media around the hashtag — #WeWantToPlay. I’ll discuss on today’s show why the SEC is the conference that should lead the way in the efforts to preserve the season.

10-minute mark: I discuss the specific measures Georgia is taking to care for its players and manage the coronavirus — as explained by UGA’s director of sports science, Ron Courson.

15-minute mark: DawgNation analyst — and former UGA All-American — Jon Stinchcomb joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • A discussion about whether the season can still be saved and whether it should
  • UGA’s newly-added games with Arkansas and Mississippi State
  • And reaction to allegations racial insensitivity against former UGA quarterback and offensive coordinator Mike Bobo

35-minute mark: I discuss other SEC headlines including the two new games the conference announced Friday for each of the league’s teams, more reaction to the accusation against Bobo, the strong showing of support Bobo has received from those who know him well and a mention of Florida after the Gators picked up a commitment from five-star cornerback Jason Marshall over the weekend.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
