Georgia football podcast: UGA should embrace underdog role vs. Alabama

Beginning of the show: Georgia is a big underdog to Alabama Saturday, and that’s potentially a good source of motivation for the Bulldogs. I’ll talk about that subject on today’s show and explain why UGA has a better chance of beating the Crimson Tide than the experts think.

10-minute mark: I’ll share audio of UGA coach Kirby Smart and Alabama coach Nick Saban discussing their upcoming game against each other.

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

  • Chip’s thoughts on UGA as an underdog
  • Smart and Saban’s hesitation to discuss what many observers viewed as an inevitable rematch between the Bulldogs and Alabama
  • Whether UGA could have some new offensive or defensive wrinkles that could possibly surprise the Crimson Tide
  • And a look at why Alabama hasn’t dominated its opponents as much lately as it was earlier in the season, and whether that should make UGA fans more optimistic about Saturday

30-minute mark: I’ll preview the huge week for DawgNation — including special Road to Atlanta broadcasts, a fun night at Marlow’s Tavern in Brookhaven Thursday night and DawgNation’s huge Road to Atlanta tailgate on Saturday. I’ll also address why I believe Alabama should be disqualified from Playoff contention if it loses to UGA, and I’ll look at the wild, seven-overtime thriller between LSU and Texas A&M.

35-minute mark: I’ll share more audio from Smart on the challenge of blocking Alabama’s talented group of defensive linemen and linebackers.

End of show: I’ll share the Gator Hater Updater.
