On episode No. 1,189 (May 6, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about Georgia linebacker signee Mekhail Sherman’s push to get five-star defensive tackle Maason Smith and five-star defensive end Korey Foreman to join him at UGA.

Georgia football podcast: Mekhail Sherman pushes five-star recruits to join him at UGA

Beginning of the show: I discuss why recent UGA signee Mekhail Sherman belongs on the list of Bulldogs players who’ve proven to be good recruiters for the program, and I discuss why UGA players who are seemingly proud of their school become popular with fans.

10-minute mark: I discuss the fact that UGA coach Kirby Smart chooses not to cast his team as an underdog even though the Bulldogs are still viewed that way in comparison to Alabama.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Connor Riley joins the show. Some of the topics discussed include…

  • Thoughts on Sherman and other UGA players who’ve contributed to the Bulldogs’ recruiting efforts on social media
  • Why SEC programs — including UGA — don’t seem to want to tout themselves as underdogs
  • The possibility that UGA wide receivers coach Cortez Hankton could soon be a coach on the rise
  • And an explanation of why incoming freshman wide receiver Marcus Rosemy could have a similar impact to what former UGA offensive tackle Andrew Thomas had during his freshman season in 2017

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including the back and forth between Texas and Texas A&M about possibly renewing their rivalry and I look at a basketball graduate transfer from Arizona State drawing interest from a number of SEC programs — including UGA.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
