Beginning of the show: Georgia tight end Darnell Washington — a five-star recruit from the 2020 class — is a rising star in the Bulldogs offense according to a writer for 247Sports. I’ll discuss the outlook for Washington on today’s show — including a comparison of how he could be used by UGA in a similar fashion to the way Florida has used Kyle Pitts.

Eight-minute mark: I discuss the fallout from the secret recordings of Valdosta High School coach Rush Propst — including the strong denial of improper payment by former UGA running back Nick Chubb and an update on how UGA’s compliance department is handling the situation.

10-minute mark: I share audio of Arkansas coach Sam Pittman’s appearance on the DawgNation video channels Friday night.

20-minute mark: DawgNation’s Mike Griffith joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Mike’s interviews with Pittman and former UGA offensive lineman Ben Cleveland
  • Reaction to the comments from Propst
  • And more

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including a former Tennessee signee heading to Tennessee, Kansas firing Les Miles after allegations emerged dating back to his time at LSU and more.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Roll Call, award a Golden Shoe winner and update the Gator Hater Countdown.
