Beginning of the show: Georgia’s two games with Auburn were among the most crucial contests in college football for 2017. One ESPN writer said matchup will be crucial again this season. I’ll explain on the show why UGA’s game vs. the Tigers could be pivotal.

10-minute mark: I talk more about the upcoming DawgNation Appreciation and address what could be an important issue in the upcoming quarterback competition between Jake Fromm and Justin Fields. 

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Seth Emerson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • D’Andre Swift preparing to replace Nick Chubb and Sony Michel
  • Previewing UGA’s wide receivers
  • Comparing Kirby Smart to Mark Richt
  • With coaching staff turnover inevitable, is it more important to keep the offensive coaches because of Smart’s background?
  • Will Mark Fox return to UGA?
  • How does Ashton Hagans figure into the Mark Fox decision?

30-minute mark: I look at some other SEC headlines, including graduate transfer quarterback Gardner Minshew reportedly picking Alabama, Tennessee possibly needing its own graduate transfer quarterback, LSU’s offensive coordinator already being in the spotlight, and Jimbo Fisher being given a national championship plaque.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and remind DawgNation Daily listeners and viewers about the brand new DawgNation Daily Double posted at the DawgNation Forum.
