Georgia football podcast: Jamie Newman could possibly give UGA what it needs most

Beginning of the show: Georgia’s offense wasn’t explosive enough in 2019 — either on deep throws or long runs. However, throws of 20 or more yards down the field is an area in which new UGA quarterback Jamie Newman excelled in while playing for Wake Forest last season. I’ll explain on today’s show why Newman’s previous experience could provide a major boost for the Bulldogs in the area in which they need it most.
