Georgia football podcast: Former SEC star provides hope for George Pickens’ comeback

Beginning of the show: Georgia wide receiver George Pickens’ ACL injury is more than just a blow to UGA fans’ hopes for a national championship. It’s a loss for the rest of college football as well.

Pickens is a dynamic playmaker and must-see TV for many who care about the sport.

In fact, one former SEC player who feels that way, former Tennessee wide receiver Jayson Swain, joined the all-new SEC Country Live Wednesday to discuss why he’s a fan of Pickens and why he believes Pickens could be back playing sooner rather than later.

I’ll share what Swain had to say on today’s show.

10-minute mark: I discuss the difficulty UGA has had with injuries involving its top wide receiver signees and examine the role former five-star wide receiver recruits have played in powering the top offenses in recent seasons.

20-minute mark: Former UGA wide receiver Terrence Edwards joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Reaction to Pickens’ injury
  • An evaluation of his road to recovery
  • And a look at the receivers who could step up while Pickens is sidelined

40-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including a statement from former Alabama assistant Jay Graham regarding his decision to step away from the team.

45-minute mark: I explain why former West Virginia defensive back Tykee Smith’s decision to enter the transfer portal could impact UGA.

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