On episode No. 1,009 (Aug. 116, 2019) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about how UGA’s key leaders will respond after being called out by Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart after a disappointing performance in the first summer scrimmage last Saturday.

Georgia football podcast: UGA’s starters have chance to correct ‘lethargic’ effort in first scrimmage

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart wasn’t pleased with some of the effort he saw in the first scrimmage of summer practices last Saturday. I’ll explain on today’s show why some of the offenders — including UGA’s offensive line — have a chance at retribution this Saturday. I’ll also share some audio of Smart discussing some of the most buzzed-about freshmen on the Bulldogs roster.

10-minute mark: I discuss the confidence UGA players and Smart seem to have regarding the Bulldogs’ secondary.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • An update on 4-star linebacker B.J. Ojulari — who’s set to announce his college decision Friday
  • The latest on 4-star offensive lineman Sedrick Van Pran
  • Reaction to some online chatter regarding 5-star cornerback Elias Ricks
  • The latest on UGA’s running back recruiting efforts — including a discussion about 5-star prospect Zachary Evans
  • And a defense of my seeming fixation on 2020 tight end targets

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including Florida losing another member of its 2019 class, a potentially serious injury to a key LSU offensive lineman, the slow process the NCAA is following regarding Tennessee transfer Aubrey Solomon and an early preview of Florida-Miami — which is on tap for next Saturday.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
