Chip Towers from Dawgnation joined Jon Chuckery and Robb Tribble to talk about the latest with the Georgia Bulldogs. Towers on Terry Godwin’s legacy at Georgia, “I think a lot of people may have forgotten he was a five star recruit who could have had a baseball career as well because the Braves drafted him. He was the MVP of the Gator Bowl his freshman year but the one moment that will stick out is his catch at Notre Dame. He will always be remembered for that. He was hurt this year so we have to cut him some slack for that. He reminds me a little bit of Hines Ward in the sense that he isn’t the biggest guy in the world and not the fastest guy in the world but he is tough and always catches the ball when it’s thrown to him.”

Towers on all the coaching changes that Kirby Smart has had to deal with on his staff this off-season, “Well you got to remember that Kirby was that assistant coach at Alabama that would walk into Nick Saban’s office every year and say I got this offer and that offer but he held out for the right job and obviously things have worked out for him at Georgia.”

Towers then spoke about the way recruiting has changed with the growing use of the transfer portal.

Towers on Georgia’s new coaching hire Charlton Warren, “The two things we know about him is that he is well respected and recruits the Atlanta area well.”

Towers on Georgia potentially hiring a new defensive coordinator, “I think it has taken awhile because so many other pieces have had to fall into place. They have talked to the Raiders defensive back Derrick Ansley but there has been no mention that Charlton Warren will be the new defensive coordinator.”

Towers wrapped up the interview by speaking about the pro prospects of Elijah Holyfield.
