Georgia football podcast: One stat makes UGA’s win vs. Missouri look more impressive

Beginning of the show: Georgia won another road game Saturday by two touchdowns — something the program hasn’t done much over the last three decades. I’ll share a stat on today’s show that demonstrates how rare that feat has been. I’ll also talk about the huge point spread for the Tennessee game and why some of UGA’s other games suddenly look tougher than many would’ve predicted before the season began.

10-minute mark: I share audio from UGA coach Kirby Smart on the state of the Bulldogs’ running game — including running backs D’Andre Swift and Elijah Holyfield.

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

  • Freshmen offensive linemen who could step up while starting right guard Ben Cleveland is out with an injury
  • The outlook for freshman running back James Cook — who played sparingly vs. Missouri
  • Whether Tennessee recruits are turned off by the Vols’ recent blowout losses
  • And a look at the impressive collection of recruiting visitors expected Saturday at Sanford Stadium

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including Dan Mullen returning to Mississippi State as Florida coach for the first time Saturday, criticism of the maroon Bulldogs after losing to Kentucky last week, the beginnings of a Heisman campaign for Wildcats running back Benny Snell and an Arkansas wide receiver’s decision to transfer.

35-minute mark: I’ll talk more about Smart’s reaction to wide receiver JJ Holloman dropping the ball near the goal line while scoring a touchdown vs. Missouri.

End of show: I’ll update the Gator Hater Countdown.
