Georgia football podcast: Identifying the ‘emerging stars’ on UGA’s defense

Beginning of the show: Georgia lost five first-round picks from its 2021 defense, and there are plenty of questions about how the Bulldogs might replace the departed talent. Among those inquiring are a pair of ESPN writers who recently addressed the topic in a post-spring writeup about the Bulldogs and its competition in the SEC East.

I’ll begin a conversation on today’s show that attempts to identify who could be next to emerge for UGA -- beginning with the linebackers.

15-minute mark: I discuss the latest on five-star quarterback Arch Manning, who addressed the current state of his recruitment this week as he begins spring practice with his high school, Isidore Newman in New Orleans.

20-minute mark: DawgNation’s Connor Riley joins the show.

45-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including some strong comments from the league’s commissioner, Greg Sankey.

50-minute mark: I share a fun update on two former Bulldogs teammates, running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel.

End of show: I award some Golden Shoe winners 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.
