Georgia football podcast: Hardworking UGA players deserve a season

Beginning of the show: The status of the upcoming season remains in doubt as the country battles the coronavirus. Unfortunately, many of the factors surrounding whether college football will be played this fall could ultimately be out of coaches and administrators’ hands. However, I’ll explain on today’s show why it would be a shame if UGA is sidelined — especially considering some of the players who’ve reportedly put it hard working training during the offseason, such as wide receiver George Pickens, whom UGA coach Kirby Smart recently praised during an ESPN podcast interview.

10-minute mark: I discuss some dire comments from Saturday from SEC commissioner Greg Sankey regarding the likelihood games will be played this fall.

15-minute mark: Former UGA All-American — and DawgNation analyst — Jon Stinchcomb joins the show. Some of the topics covered include..

  • Jon’s thoughts on Pickens
  • college football’s battle vs. coronavirus
  • And reaction to UGA offensive lineman Broderick Jones recent bike accident

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including the reported meeting Monday involving the league’s athletic directors in Birmingham, Ala. and the fun some fans have had imagining what a conference-only schedule might look like.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
