Georgia football podcast: UGA puts finishing touches on Orange Bowl preparations

Today’s show was recorded live on Thursday on the scene at the Orange Bowl and features a look at the final preparations for Georgia and Michigan ahead of Friday’s game. As part of the show you’ll hear...

  • Some extended comments from Georgia coach Kirby Smart, offensive tackle Jamaree Salyer and defensive end Travon Walker about the challenge posed by the Wolverines. I’ll also discuss why it seems UGA is being discussed amongst the national media less frequently than Michigan
  • I’ll share audio of Smart addressing how his team is handling some possible COVID issues while in Miami
  • And, of course, there will be a little bit of the obligatory quarterback talk as well

DawgNation will also have live coverage from the stadium throughout the day Friday, and then after the game, we’ll be on the field for the DawgNation postgame show.

I’ll also look forward to being back in studio Monday at our normal time and in our normal format to (hopefully) begin previewing the Bulldogs trip to the national championship game.

Happy new year to all of you!
