Beginning of the show: Two of the former five-star signees on Georgia’s roster could be set for breakout seasons. Sophomore outside linebacker Nolan Smith and defensive lineman Travon Walker were impressive last season in their first year on campus, but the best truly could still be yet to come for both players.

UGA defensive coordinator Dan Lanning addressed the outlook for Smith and Walker when he spoke to the media Friday, and I’ll share on today’s show some of what Lanning about to say about them — including a unique description Lanning gave about what makes them potentially special for the Bulldogs defense this season.

10-minute mark: I’ll share a clip of an amazing statement UGA running back Zamir White made about his motivation for this season from a video the Bulldogs official account shared on Twitter.

15-minute mark: Former UGA All-American — and DawgNation analyst — Jon Stinchcomb joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • The outlook for White this upcoming season
  • The value of quickness for a pass rusher
  • The need for UGA’s defense to produce more negative plays this season
  • And reaction to the ongoing controversy surrounding former UGA offensive lineman Cade Mays’ Tennessee transfer

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including a preview of the Preseason Associated Press Top 25.

40-minute mark: I react to the impressive collection of elite recruits that visited Athens over the weekend.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
