Georgia football podcast: UGA fans express concern about 5-star LB Owen Pappoe’s upcoming decision

Beginning of the show: Speculation continues among many Georgia fans that Auburn has emerged as a legitimate threat to UGA for 5-star linebacker Owen Pappoe — who’s scheduled to announce his commitment May 5. I’ll discuss how a pledge to the Tigers by one of Pappoe’s high school teammates could impact Pappoe’s decision.

10-minute mark: I’ll take a look at the series of events that unfolded resulting in UGA coach Kirby Smart’s decision to give offensive lineman Chris Barnes a look at defensive tackle this spring.

15-minute mark: SEC Country’s Mike Johnson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • How hard will it be for Barnes to transition from the offensive to defensive line?
  • With some UGA offensive linemen working at multiple positions, how different is the left side from the right side?
  • What does Mike think of Smart’s positive assessment of Justin Fields?
  • What are spring scrimmages like?
  • Advantages of the No. 1 offense going against the No. 1 defense?

30-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including Nick Saban recruiting from the White House, ESPN calling Auburn a “mystery” team, Florida coach Dan Mullen offering an interesting evaluation of freshman quarterback Emory Jones, an SEC Country writer suggesting Will McBride is outplaying Jarrett Guarantano, and Smart saying that he was pleased with the effort and physicality during the first scrimmage.

End of show: I congratulate the Diamond Dawgs for their win vs. Clemson, update the Gator Hater Countdown, and mention Chip Towers’ take on incoming freshman running back James Cook from DawgNation.
