Georgia football podcast: ESPN analyst explains why UGA’s different than other championship contenders

Beginning of the show: Georgia’s lack of transfers and overall track record for success makes for an easier projection for the upcoming season according to ESPN analytics expert Bill Connelly, who appeared this week on a podcast called The Solid Verbal. I’ll dive into that topic more on today’s show -- including whether its good that the Bulldogs have fewer transfers than many other national championship contenders.

15-minute mark: I’ll share some high praise for UGA defensive tackle Jalen Carter and share why the outlook for the Bulldogs defense might be better than some assume.

20-minute mark: DawgNation’s Mike Griffith joins the show to discuss the latest news with the Bulldogs.

40-minute mark: I take a look at other headlines including Ohio State adding another five-star wide receiver recruit and Florida picking up a commitment from a four-star edge rusher.

End of show: I award a Golden Shoe winner and share the Gator Hater Updater and the Gator Hater Countdown.

After the show: I take questions and comments as part of the Podcast Cool Down.
