Georgia football podcast: Everyone should calm down about Zamir White injury

Beginning of the show: Tensions ran high around DawgNation Saturday after Georgia freshman running back Zamir White tore his ACL working on the punt coverage team during UGA’s scrimmage. I’ll talk on today’s show about White’s injury, the strong reaction to the news and where the Bulldogs go from here.

10-minute mark: I award 5-star wide receiver Dominick Blaylock as RS Andrews’ “Cool Under Pressure” performer of the week for his three touchdowns in his senior season debut.

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

  • UGA coach Kirby Smart’s testy exchange with reporters regarding White’s injury
  • Outlook for White’s recovery
  • What the UGA running back depth looks like with White out of the picture
  • An update on the quarterback competition involving Jake Fromm and Justin Fields
  • Thoughts on the cornerback competition involving Eric Stokes, Tyson Campbell and others
  • And a look at whether presumed starter Kendall Baker is in danger of losing his left guard spot

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including a strong accusation of cheating against Nick Saban by an anonymous coach, a reportedly successful scrimmage for Crimson Tide quarterback Jalen Hurts, statistical proof that LSU’s quarterback competition apparently is a long way from being over, and an update on Tennessee signee JJ Peterson — who is yet to practice for the Vols.

35-minute mark: I profile UGA defensive end Jonathan Ledbetter.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown, discuss rumored negotiations between UGA and Oregon about a non-conference match-up and preview the Monday release of the Preseason AP Poll.
