Georgia football podcast: One way in which UGA is building itself to topple Alabama

Beginning of the show: Alabama is unquestionably a formidable SEC foe for Georgia, and one of the things that makes the Crimson Tide tough to beat is its crop of “super fast” wide receivers. However, I’ll explain on today’s show why UGA is seemingly building a secondary that could match up well with Alabama. I’ll also discuss how that mindset is impacting the kinds of players UGA’s recruiting for its 2020 class.

10-minute mark: I discuss UGA’s 2020 schedule — including a new date for Auburn and a return to Tuscaloosa, Ala. for the first time since 2007.

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

  • Barrett picking UGA to win the national championship
  • The possibility the SEC can get two teams in the Playoff again — matching its feat from 2017
  • And reaction to how changes to UGA’s 2020 schedule impacts the rest of the SEC

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including Florida coach Dan Mullen stepping into a controversy over the way his program has handled some domestic violence issues, a key member of Tennessee’s defensive line sustaining an injury, another Vols player leaving the program and Clemson coach Dabo Swinney intensifying the Tigers war of words with Alabama.

35-minute mark: I share my conversation with former UGA great Jon Stinchcomb regarding the Bulldogs’ backup quarterback situation.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
