Brandon Adams

Georgia football is the No. 1 topic every day on DawgNation Daily — the daily podcast for Georgia Bulldogs fans. Catch up on everything happening with UGA athletics with host Brandon Adams and the cast of DawgNation experts as they break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news and discuss UGA coach Kirby Smart’s quest to keep the Bulldogs on top of the SEC. On episode No. 673 (March 29, 2018) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about an anonymous coach giving a huge compliment to D’Andre Swift.

Georgia football podcast: Anonymous coach gives D’Andre Swift huge compliment

Beginning of the show: D’Andre Swift will be able to step in for departed running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel with little drop-off, according to an anonymous coach quoted by ESPN. I’ll talk on the show about Swift’s likely emergence as Georgia’s featured back and what that could mean for the Bulldogs offense in the years ahead.

10-minute mark: New UGA left tackle Andrew Thomas is generating positive reviews for how he’s handled the position switch from right tackle, where Thomas started in 2017 as a freshman. I’ll talk about why Thomas’ value at left tackle shouldn’t be overlooked, why offensive line coach Sam Pittman deserves some of the credit for the smooth transition, and where UGA coach Kirby Smart still sees room for improvement with Thomas.

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

  • How big of a loss is Divaad Wilson for UGA?
  • What are the impressions of new wide receivers coach Cortez Hankton?
  • With Jim Chaney coaching the tight ends, will that lead to more targets?
  • Does the praise for third-string quarterback Stetson Bennett have substance to to it?
  • Is the defense really ahead of where it was last year, as coach Kirby Smart says it is?
  • Can D’Andre Walker be an every-down player?

30-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including Alabama linebacker Mack Wilson challenging Elijah Holyfield, Alabama adding JUCO defensive lineman Tevita Musika, a former Florida defensive lineman praising Gators strength coach Nick Savage, and former Tennessee quarterback Casey Clausen wanting the Vols to recruit nationally again.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and invite the audience to check out the DawgNation Daily Double.
