Beginning of the show: Five-star defensive end Brenton Cox is emerging as a prime candidate to be an impact freshman at Georgia. Hear more about why that is on the Thursday show and get some background on how hard Kirby Smart had to work to secure his signature.

10-minute mark: Georgia’s recruiting success is getting a lot of attention around the sport, and it’s apparently causing some trouble for some of its rivals. I’ll give some details about that and discuss UGA’s basketball win vs. Florida.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Seth Emerson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Dan Mullen’s comments adding fuel to the Cocktail Party rivalry
  • How does UGA compare to the other teams in the East?  Can any of the other teams take advantage?
  • Basketball coach Mark Fox needs to make drastic changes to keep his job. How does beating Florida rank on that scale?
  • Ole Miss’ Andy Kennedy is stepping down with a better résumé than Fox has, so does that hurt Fox?
  • An interesting look into UGA’s finances after an increase in ticket prices

30-minute mark: I look at some other SEC headlines, including 4-star quarterback Grant Gunnell de-committing from Texas A&M, former Heisman Trophy winner Chris Weinke reportedly joining the Tennessee staff, Volunteers athletic director Phillip Fulmer discussing a departing coach, and Jim McElwain reportedly taking a job at Michigan.
