Georgia football podcast: ESPN writer touts UGA defensive players for Heisman

Beginning of the show: The race for the Heisman Trophy seems more wide open than usual this season, and the opportunity for an unorthodox winner -- such as a defensive player -- could be more possible than ever before. I’ll discuss on today’s show why some are saying one of Georgia’s defensive stars should get consideration.

10-minute mark: I discuss the questions being asked about UGA’s quarterback situation -- including what happens when JT Daniels is fully healthy -- and how UGA coach Kirby Smart addressed that topic during his press conference Monday.

20-minute mark: DawgNation’s Connor Riley joins the show to look back on the Bulldogs’ win at Auburn and ahead to this Saturday’s game vs. Kentucky.

40-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including one writer’s explanation of Smart’s role in Alabama’s defensive demise.

45-minute mark: CBS Sports’ Brad Nessler joins the show to share thoughts on being on the call for Texas A&M’s upset of Alabama last week, and what to expect from the Bulldogs against Kentucky.

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

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