Georgia football podcast: UGA fans should adopt the mindset of one of the all-time greats

Beginning of the show: I became aware of a letter this week written by legendary former Georgia defensive coordinator Erk Russell. Many UGA fans seemingly already knew about it, but it was new to me. I begin today’s show by discussing it and using it as an entry point for a discussion about why Bulldogs fans have plenty to be excited about for the upcoming season.

15-minute mark: I discuss three-star wide receiver Yazeed Haynes’ UGA commitment.

20-minute mark: Former UGA wide receiver Terrence Edwards joins the show to discuss Haynes’ commitment and to share thoughts on four-star wide receiver Tyler Williams, who is visiting Athens again this weekend.

40-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including an SEC coach taking some public shots at Tennessee.

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.
