On episode No. 1,305 (Oct. 20, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about what ESPN writer Bill Connelly recently wrote about UGA’s quarterback situation and the comparison between current starter Stetson Bennett and previously injured backup JT Daniels.

Georgia football podcast: ESPN gives Kirby Smart advice about QB situation

Beginning of the show: Questions persist about Georgia’s quarterback situation after Stetson Bennett’s struggles at Alabama last Saturday. ESPN writer Bill Connelly recently suggested a change at starter might be a remedy for the Bulldogs’ offensive woes, but that change remains unlikely until more is known about the health status of JT Daniels — who has been cleared to play after recovering from a knee injury, but hasn’t yet taken the field for UGA.
