Georgia football podcast: 3 steps to make UGA the country’s best defense

Beginning of the show: Every preseason prediction for Georgia begins with a basic stipulation. The Bulldogs are assumed to have one of the best defenses in the country.

UGA’s prodigious talent level and recent track record of success are the main reasons many analysts seem comfortable making those predictions. Yet what if those prognostications were taken a step further? What if the qualifiers are removed?

What will it take for UGA to move from being one of the nation’s best defenses to truly being tops in the sport? I’ll discuss that topic on today’s show.

10-minute mark: I look at the latest UGA recruiting news — including four-star linebacker Prince Kollie announcing his finalists and four-star cornerback Nyland Green hinting at an upcoming decision.

15-minute mark: CBS Sports’ Chip Patterson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • The national attention UGA quarterback Jamie Newman has received during the offseason
  • Whether a great quarterback is required to win a national championship
  • What happens if former USC quarterback transfer JT Daniels is ruled eligible for the upcoming season
  • And the outlook for many of the SEC’s top quarterbacks

30-minute mark: I take a look at the latest SEC headlines including Tennessee athletic director Phillip Fulmer’s thoughts on fans in Neyland Stadium this fall and some positive coronavirus test results among Florida’s football team.
