Georgia football podcast: UGA hasn’t gotten enough credit for a major defensive improvement

Beginning of the show: Georgia greatly improved its rush defense last season. I’ll explain on today’s show why that upgraded performance could also be a harbinger for better play from other aspects of the Bulldogs defense this upcoming season.

10-minute mark: I discuss how pre-draft evaluations of former UGA quarterback Jake Fromm’s fundamentals and footwork provide a possible hint at how the Bulldogs should coach quarterbacks in the future.

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

  • The 2021 season opener vs. Clemson, and memories of Jon’s win vs. Clemson in 2002
  • Other non-conference series UGA should explore
  • The common narratives forming around former Bulldogs offensive linemen Andrew Thomas, Isaiah Wilson and Solomon Kindley as the trio prepares for the upcoming NFL draft

30-minute mark: I preview the start of the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis and explain why contract details for new Auburn offensive coordinator Chad Morris might indicate Tigers coach Gus Malzahn might not truly relinquish control of Auburn’s offense the way he’s promised.

35-minute mark: I discuss a fun basketball win for UGA vs. Vanderbilt.

End of show: I caution UGA fans regarding wild offseason rumors and share the Gator Hater Updater.
