Georgia football podcast: UGA fans shouldn’t panic after recent de-commitments

Beginning of the show: It’s been a tough couple days for Georgia’s 2022 recruiting efforts. The program has recently suffered two high-profile de-commitments. Five-star defensive tackle Bear Alexander backed off his pledge on Monday, and a day later, five-star athlete Deyon Bouie did the same.

Seemingly at the center of Alexander and Bouie’s story is Texas A&M, the school the two recruits visited shortly before they exited the Bulldogs’ class.

I’ll discuss more on that topic on today’s show -- including the role former UGA staffer Nick Williams, recently hired Aggies coach Jimbo Fisher, played in convincing Alexander and Bouie to reopen their recruitment.

10-minute mark: I discuss the speculation around UGA wide receiver Arik Gilbert’s eligibility for the upcoming season.

20-minute mark: DawgNation’s Mike Griffith joins the show to discuss the looming recruiting battle between UGA and the Aggies.

40-minute mark: I take a look at other headlines including the growing likelihood of massive Playoff expansion.

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

After the show: I take questions and comments as part of the Podcast Cool Down.
