Georgia football podcast: 3 reasons why UGA’s defense will be must-see TV this fall

Beginning of the show: Georgia’s defense should be fun to watch this season. There are a number of young players — including linebackers Nakobe Dean and Nolan Smith as well as defensive lineman Travon Walker — who could be on the verge of bursting into stardom. And some of the Bulldogs’ veterans could also be ready to take the next step in their development too. Not to mention the fact that UGA’s reputation as a physical team was bolstered by its stingy rush defense last season. I’ll discuss all those factors on today’s show and explain why the results should be entertaining for fans.

10-minute mark: I mock Alabama coach Nick Saban for comparing himself to Michael Jordan.

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

  • Jon’s thoughts on UGA’s defense
  • Reaction to media skepticism of the Bulldogs’ offense
  • And a fun behind-the-scenes look at what it was like to play on the New Orleans Saints with quarterback Drew Brees

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including an intriguing report suggesting Tennessee athletic director Phillip Fulmer isn’t on board with the league’s attempt to begin returning to campus June 1, and a discussion about the current status of Auburn’s future quarterback situation.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
