Beginning of the show: Georgia players are dealing with the challenge of managing an unprecedented offseason. Never before have players been asked to ready themselves for the upcoming season in isolation to the degree that they’ve been forced to this year because the of the coronavirus. However, I’ll explain on today’s show why even during the widespread lockdown some UGA players — such as offensive lineman Jamaree Salyer and running back James Cook — have probably established an advantage for themselves because of their well-known workout partners.

10-minute mark: I share audio from Auburn president Jay Gogue which is arguably the boldest statement yet from a key SEC figure regarding plans to play the upcoming season.

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