Georgia football podcast: SEC Network analyst puts UGA on upset alert vs. surprising foe

Beginning of the show: Georgia could lose to Missouri this season according to SEC Network analyst Greg McElroy. I’ll talk on today’s show about McElroy’s likely reasoning and why I think UGA will avoid the upset vs. the Tigers.

15-minute mark: SEC Country’s Mike Johnson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Should UGA be on upset alert vs. Missouri?
