Georgia football podcast: UGA’s championship path might be different than some fans assume

Beginning of the show: Many UGA fans have noticed the hype around new UGA quarterback Jamie Newman, and that’s led some to assume that the Bulldogs’ best chance at a national championship requires a great season from the Wake Forest grad transfer. However, I’ll explain on today’s show why Newman might not necessarily need to achieve the lofty predictions that exist for him in order for UGA to enjoy team success.

10-minute mark: I discuss the most recent video from UGA involving players going through voluntary workouts, and I’ll share some audio from UGA coach Kirby Smart on the measures the Bulldogs are taking to protect players.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Mike Griffith joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • How Newman and USC transfer JT Daniels could coexist this season
  • Reaction to some of UGA’s biggest offseason questions — including the health of wide receiver Dominick Blaylock
  • And a preview of how July could look as Georgia gets back to practice.

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including five-star safety James Williams’ recent tweet that suggests he could be nearing a commitment decision and an Alabama pledge who committed to the Crimson Tide apparently without ever visiting Tuscaloosa.

35-minute mark: I discuss former UGA great Champ Bailey earning consideration for the College Football Hall of Fame.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
