Georgia football podcast: 5 reasons UGA’s still a major Playoff contender

Beginning of the show: Georgia is still a Playoff contender despite its loss to LSU, and on today’s show I’ll lay out the evidence why this is true.

10-minute mark: UGA coach Kirby Smart spoke about quarterbacks again Tuesday, and I’ll share the audio of what he had to say regarding the ways in which he thinks both Jake Fromm and Justin Fields can improve.

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

  • Mike’s thoughts on Fromm and Fields
  • Why UGA seemingly abandoned the running game Saturday
  • Whether running back Elijah Holfyield is due to receive more carries in upcoming games
  • And an update running back D’Andre Swift — who wasn’t seen at practice Tuesday reportedly due to an injured ankle

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including the possibility Auburn coach Gus Malzahn has landed on the so-called “hot seat” just months after signing a $49 million contract extension, a look at how Alabama defensive lineman Raekwon Davis was caught on film throwing punches vs. Missouri Saturday night, reaction to Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa’s return to practice after injuring his knee and bad news for Tennessee involving defensive lineman Jonathan Kongbo’s ACL tear — which will end his season for the Vols.

40-minute mark: I profile a new movie featuring two former UGA players in cameo roles, and share audio from Smart touting the performance of a couple UGA defensive players — including outside linebacker Robert Beal, defensive lineman Malik Herring and defensive lineman Jordan Davis.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
