Chip Towers joined Dukes and Bell to talk about the Dawgs and gave us some insight on where freshman OL Cade Mays has been lining up "It's one of those things you don't know what to make of it, but there was no mistaking it that Cade Mays was out there with the number one unit at left guard. We may be at the point where they are trying to build depth so they're moving guys around and he's worked at every position on the line but center so far this year."

 Chip talked about the depth Kirby has built on the roster "I don't want to overcook it, but there's no denying Kirby Smart's recruiting, right now you have 21 5 star recruits on the roster, and next year it'll rise to 25 which will be more than Alabama. He's stockpiling talent, and these guys are out here fighting tooth and nail, the guys are hungry at proving they can play three years and go to the NFL."

 The guys asked Towers if Demtris Robertson is a guy who can take the top off of the defense? Chip said "That's what he is here for, that's what he did at Cal, he's a real speed demon and is supposed to be a guy to take the top off of the defense."

 When asked the million dollar question on how much we will see of Justin Fields this season "You have to get him in games early, he's your only other quarterback and I'm expecting him to play against an Austin Peay even in the first half, the real answer will be in the SEC and road opener over in Columbia against South Carolina if he's in that game then you know they think highly of him."
