Georgia football podcast: UGA might have history on its side in championship pursuit

Beginning of the show: Georgia is one of the few teams with a strong claim to a national championship according to veteran college football reporter Brett McMurphy. I’ll talk about what that means on today’s show, and what UGA coach Kirby Smart’s likely response to the chatter would be.

10-minute mark: I talk about some of the “explosive plays” that apparently took place at UGA’s scrimmage this past Saturday.

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

  • Jeff’s thoughts on 4-star offensive lineman Sedrick Van Pran’s commitment
  • An examination of how UGA’s collection of 2020 offensive line recruits stack up with some of the best of all time
  • A review of the clever video UGA shared this week of sprinter Matthew Boling running with some Bulldogs football players
  • And an interesting tweet from UGA tight ends coach Todd Hartley that seemed to send a message about the Bulldogs’ effort at building a so-called “super team” with its 2020 class.

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including reaction to the Preseason AP Top 25, some interesting comments from Florida coach Dan Mullen regarding quarterback Feleipe Franks and some possible skepticism for Alabama as a national championship favorite.

40-minute mark: I share audio of UGA coach Kirby Smart addressing some key injury scenarios — including linebacker Nakobe Dean, and defensive linemen Julian Rochester and David Marshall.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
