Beginning of the show: Former Georgia wide receiver Terrence Edwards praised 5-star wide receiver — and UGA signee — George Pickens this week. I’ll share audio on today’s show of what Edwards said about Pickens, and talk about how Pickens could fit into the Bulldogs’ plans when he arrives this summer.

10-minute mark: I talk about why UGA defensive end David Marshall thinks freshman linebacker Nakobe Dean could be “another Roquan Smith.”

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

  • Mike’s thoughts on Pickens
  • The chances a UGA linebacker produces similar success to Smith — the 2017 Butkus Award winner
  • UGA’s unprecedented offensive line depth
  • And an opinion on UGA coach Kirby Smart’s reaction to wide receiver Tyler Simmons and defensive back Tyrique Stevenson’s disorderly conduct charges stemming from an incident in an Athens bar

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including LSU coach Ed Orgeron giving more compliments to his offense, Tennessee suspending a defensive back after an incident in Miami, Florida apparently losing a former 5-star signee, and hype already building for a high-profile week one game.

35-minute mark: I share audio of what Smart said about recent arrests.
