On Tuesday’s episode of the Aaron Torres Sports Podcast, Brian Murphy of the Idaho Statesman was nice enough to stop by and break down all things Boise State football, in the lead-up to their big, opening week showdown with Georgia. Well it only seemed fair then, I follow up with someone from Athens to give the Bulldogs point of view, right?
Well today I’m doing just that, as I welcome Seth Emerson, who covers Georgia for the Macon Telegraph and Columbus Ledger-Enquirer to the podcast.

Seth has been on the Georgia beat for over a year now, and knows this program inside and out, as Mark Richt enters the biggest season of his career. Amongst the topics Seth and I discussed included the following:
- Why he doesn’t believe that this is necessarily a “make or break,” year for Richt. At the same time, why even if he survives, Richt could still be in trouble for 2012.
- The arrest of Caleb King. Does it make Isaiah Crowell the most important freshman in the country? Why King’s departure from the program is significantly different from Washaun Ealey’s and others.
- Why are so many players leaving the program? Is it something Mark Richt is doing wrong? Is it simply house keeping?
- What to expect in year two of Todd Grantham’s reign as defensive coordinator? Why depth is much less an issue on that side of the ball, than it is on offense.
- In a year where the SEC East is down, why Seth doesn’t necessarily believe that it’s Georgia’s to take.
And much, much more.
It’s no secret that entering the season, Georgia and their head coach have as much on the line as anyone else. And with that, Seth gives us the inside scoop of what it’s like to follow a program with so much on the line.
