Georgia football podcast: Excitement builds for JT Daniels’ possible UGA debut

Beginning of the show: Georgia fans have been waiting for their first glimpse of former five-star quarterback — and recent USC transfer — JT Daniels. And while there’s been no official indication Daniels’ debut will happen Saturday when UGA takes on Mississippi State, there’s growing buzz that Daniels could get his chance.

I’ll discuss on today’s show why — even though the excitement is understandable — UGA fans should attempt to temper their expectations if Daniels does play Saturday.

10-minute mark: I discuss the so-far-so-good vibe around UGA’s chances of playing its game with Mississippi State Saturday despite the fact MSU missed its last game with Auburn due to to a coronavirus outbreak.

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

  • Daniels’ chances of playing Saturday
  • Any potential remaining concerns for UGA-MSU
  • And a look at the impact South Carolina coach Will Muschamp’s firing could have on UGA

35-minute mark: I preview the top games of the weekend — including LSU-Arkansas and Tennessee-Auburn from the SEC and top 25 matchups such as Indiana-Ohio State and the Bedlam rivalry between Oklahoma State and Oklahoma.

End of show: I preview five-star linebacker Smael Mondon’s commitment announcement — which is scheduled to take place Wednesday morning.
