WATCH: ESPN analyst shares controversial, aggressive strategy for teams returning to football

ATHENS — Georgia football has the best defense in the nation returning, and that should bode very well under the circumstances.

ESPN analyst and SEC Network sideline reporter Cole Cubelic told DawgNation how he would approach his defensive mentality with offenses having abbreviated time to prep.

“I’m going after everybody,” Cubelic said during his Ingles On The Beat appearance. “I don’t think the quarterbacks and receivers are on the same page, I don’t think my O-Line is on the same page, I don’t think they are physically ready to do it, I don’t know if they are gonna be able to survive big hits.

“I am teeing off every play, if I’m a defensive coordinator.”

On another note, coaches are growing restless with athletic directors becoming more concerned by the day as the coronavirus pandemic continues to keep sports stalled and threaten football season.

Discussions for a return to group training are ongoing, though nowhere near approved.

Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said earlier this week “the plan right now is for that to start on May 1.” 

Arkansas coach Sam Pittman said earlier this week he believes players could return for training on Aug. 1 for training without a delay to the season.

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly has said July 1 would be the right time for a return to group training.

“I think it’s going to be the most interesting case studies of people management and athlete management, as far as their bodies, their minds, and the physicality,” Cubelic said. “There is no blueprint to follow.”

 Cubelic also hared his thoughts on The Cocktail Party, as well as his favorite SEC stadium.
