Georgia football podcast: The tough truth about UGA’s recent past

Beginning of the show: Georgia’s recent disappointing losses often get lumped by the national media into the pile of Atlanta sports failings — such as the Atlanta Braves’ Game 5 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday night. I’ll explain on today’s show why I possibly haven’t given that thought enough credence and how UGA can breakthrough in its so-called “big games” going forward.

15-minute mark: I discuss a stat that indicates UGA might be doing a bit better being explosive offensively, and limiting opposing offenses than some might realize.

20-minute mark: South Carolina insider David Cloninger joins the show to preview the game against the Gamecocks.

30-minute mark: I discuss the injury status for left guard Solomon Kindley, cornerback Tyson Campbell and defensive tackle Jordan Davis.

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including Florida apparently teasing the possibility of soon wearing black uniforms and I preview the Gators’ game vs. LSU this Saturday, as well as other top games for the weekend.

40-minute mark: I discuss the ways in which UGA coach Kirby Smart strikes the balance between keeping players happy enough they don’t transfer while also managing expectations for those who don’t play as much in each game as they might hope.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
