Sound Off: Chip and Seth share details on how UGA’s first scrimmage went down

ATHENS — Thanks for tuning in to the Zaxby’s Sound Off, with beat writers Seth Emerson and Chip Towers offering their thoughts on the Georgia football team. Each week your DawgNation beat writers offer up some thoughts on the Bulldogs. Here is a short preview of this week’s show:

It is now the mid-point of preseason practice for the Georgia football team. So your faithful DawgNation beat writers are here to share their thoughts … and down some Zaxby’s birthday cake shakes in the process.

There is plenty to discuss, and not all of it food-related:

– What we heard about Georgia’s first preseason scrimmage last Saturday. How did Jacob Eason look, and were there any concerns that emerged about the sophomore quarterback? Did the defense again look like it was getting the better of the offense? Chip dishes on what he heard.

– The takeaways so far in preseason practice, especially on the offensive line. How many freshmen, true and redshirt, could start? Seth discusses what he has seen and heard, and how many offensive linemen look like they are real contenders for a starting job.

– The emergence of several under-the-radar transfers as potential starters, including J.R. Reed at safety, Cameron Nizialek at punter, David Marvin at kicker, and Ahkil Crumpton at punt return.

– And also the fact that you can pencil in Terry Godwin as the team’s top receiver. Now the question is who falls in behind him.

For some background on what we were talking about in the video:

– Here is a story that Seth Emerson posted about Terry Godwin.

– Chip Towers’ report on the scrimmage, based on intel from people who were allowed in.

–  The lineup on the offensive line, at least this week, with Isaiah Wynn back from injury, but freshman Andrew Thomas still on the first team.

– And the latest from Georgia football practice, including an injury to an upcoming freshman.
