Georgia football podcast: A former UGA star serves as example of importance of ‘culture’

Beginning of the show: Former Georgia linebacker Thomas Davis has signed with the Washington Redskins — a move made to provide a boost to the team’s culture according to some reporters. I’ll discuss on today’s show why the concept of culture — which can occasionally sound like a football coach’s cliche — is critically important during an odd scenario like what UGA and the rest of college football is currently dealing with in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. I also discuss the retirement of former UGA tight end Ben Watson and trade rumors involving former UGA running back Todd Gurley.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell makes a repeat appearance on the show to discuss the news of the day.

30-minute mark: I take a look at college football statistician Jeff Sagarin’s release of his top college football teams since 2000 — including the SEC teams that made the cut. I’ll also discuss how the sport’s landscape has changed over the last two decades — from a time not that long ago in which SEC teams weren’t necessarily at the top of the sport to the league’s current domination of the national championship discussion.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
