Georgia football podcast: Jamaal Jarrett’s UGA commitment stirs drama on the losing side

Beginning of the show: Georgia got some good news on the recruiting trail Tuesday when four-star defensive tackle Jamaal Jarrett committed to the Bulldogs over North Carolina and Auburn. Given the fact that it’s long been believed Jarrett was a UGA lean, his announcement brought an end to a relatively drama-free recruitment -- at least on the UGA side.

For North Carolina, the school that likely finished as the runner-up for Jarrett, the story was apparently much different. I’ll explain why on today’s show.

10-minute mark: I discuss some comments from UGA coach Kirby Smart at a Texas high school coaching convention about some fatigue he was feeling last summer related to the relentless recruiting schedule.

20-minute mark: Former UGA linebacker Rennie Curran joins the show.

30-minute mark: I recap some of the high points from UGA’s appearance at SEC Media Days -- which was ongoing during today’s show.

40-minute mark: I discuss new SEC Network analyst Takeo Spikes take that UGA will be upset by South Carolina.

End of show: I award some Golden Shoe winners and share the Gator Hater Updater and the Gator Hater Countdown.

After the show: I take questions and comments as part of the Podcast Cool Down.
