Beginning of the show: Georgia held it’s first preseason scrimmage Saturday at Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart met with reporters at its conclusion. One of the topics that came up for discussion was whether this season’s national champion will have an asterisk. I’ll explain on today’s show why Smart’s answer to that question is similar to a narrative that’s surrounded Los Angeles Lakers star Lebron James during the NBA season.

10-minute mark: I discuss Smart’s compliments for a couple offensive linemen battling to be starting right tackle.

15-minute mark: DawgNation analyst — and former UGA All-American — Jon Stinchcomb joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • A behind-the-scenes look at what UGA scrimmages are like from a player who once played in them
  • Thoughts on the right tackle competition between Owen Condon, Warren McClendon and Tate Ratledge
  • And some thoughts on former UGA quarterback Justin Fields — who observed practice Saturday

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including LSU wide receiver Ja-Marr Chase opting out of the upcoming season, Auburn dealing with a coronavirus outbreak, three-star defensive tackle Tim Keenan committing to Alabama and former UGA defensive back — turned Tennessee wide receiver — Deangelo Gibbs opting out of the season as well.
