Georgia football podcast: Why experience will matter in UGA’s QB competition

Beginning of the show: Georgia returns 50 percent of its offensive productivity from last season according to numbers recently published by ESPN’s Bill Connelly. I’ll discuss on today’s show why that number makes graduate transfer quarterback Jamie Newman’s experience at Wake Forest important for the Bulldogs this fall.

10-minute mark: I take a look at Connor Riley’s piece about the likelihood of freshmen becoming starting offensive tackles in the SEC.

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

  • Jon’s thoughts on Tate Ratledge and Broderick Jones
  • Refections on what Newman brings to UGA
  • And a look at what the NFL scouting combine is like for the 10 former UGA players who’ll attend later this month

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including South Carolina coach Frank Martin commenting on the possibility five-star defensive line signee Jordan Burch could also play basketball, a few Gamecocks football assistants taking new jobs, and rumors about a former UGA assistant who could emerge as a replacement. I also discuss Auburn reportedly planning to build three statues to honor some of its former coaches, and Florida scheduling a home-and-home series with Cal.

35-minute mark: I discuss why one aspect of UGA’s secondary might be an underrated element in the Bulldogs’ success formula this season.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
