Georgia football podcast: Taking stock of UGA’s quarterback competition

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart insists there are five quarterbacks involved in the competition to become Bulldogs starter despite Wake Forest grad transfer Jamie Newman and recent USC transfer JT Daniels receiving the majority of the attention from fans and media during the offseason. I’ll discuss the state of that competition on today’s show and share audio of what UGA players have said on the topic.

10-minute mark: I discuss UGA defensive back commit Javon Bullard’s appearance on Before the Hedges, and share audio that explains why so many Bulldogs fans have celebrated his commitment.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Thoughts on Bullard
  • Reaction to five-star quarterback Gunner Stockton’s South Carolina commitment
  • A preview of what’s next for the Bulldogs at that position in the 2022 cycle now that Stockton is presumably off the board
  • Thoughts on four-star 2022 quarterback MJ Morris
  • The latest on four-star defensive back Nyland Green
  • And a preview of four-star defensive tackle Tim Keenan’s upcoming commitment decision

40-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including South Carolina running back Marshawn Lloyd’s ACL injury, Florida coach Dan Mullen’s praise for former UGA linebacker Brenton Cox, the latest on 2021 defensive back Kamar Wilcoxson, Mullen’s feelings on playing against his former starting quarterback Feleipe Franks, LSU coach Ed Orgeron’s response to allegations from USA Today that he mishandled a sexual assault allegation against former running back Derrius Guice and Tennessee running back Eric Gray’s interesting take on a statistical goal.
