Georgia football podcast: SEC rival pulling out all stops to combat UGA’s recruiting success

Beginning of the show: Georgia defensive analyst Nick Williams is leaving the program to take a similar job at Texas A&M. The move provides a chance at professional development for Williams, but it also potentially impacts the 2022 recruiting cycle as Williams was a key factor in the recruitment of several of the Bulldogs top prospects -- including five-star defensive tackle commit Bear Alexander.

I’ll examine the ramifications of Williams’ departure on today’s show.

20-minute mark: DawgNation’s Connor Riley joins the show. Some of the topics covered include...

  • Some offseason praise being earned by some of UGA’s offensive linemen
  • Williams’ decision to leave UGA
  • And how the transfer portal will impact the remainder of the Bulldogs’ offseason

40-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher not backing down from a recent boast about Alabama coach Nick Saban.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and award a Golden Shoe winner.

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