Georgia football podcast: National Championship Game loss a problem, opportunity for UGA

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. 675 (April 2, 2018) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about why the National Championship Game loss is both a problem and an opportunity for UGA. 

Georgia football podcast: National Championship Game loss both problem, opportunity for UGA

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart said Saturday he sees problems with using UGA’s National Championship Game loss to Alabama as a source of motivation. I’ll explain on the show — despite Smart’s comments — why focusing on that disappointment also provides a potential benefit for the Bulldogs.

10-minute mark: I react to 5-star defensive end Nolan Smith’s April Fool’s prank — where he pretended to de-commit from UGA.

15-minute mark: SEC analyst Tony Barnhart joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • How will UGA replace departed stars?
  • Thoughts on the Fromm vs. Fields competition
  • Predicting Alabama’s starting QB
  • Is Auburn a threat to UGA this season?
  • Who looks to be Georgia’s competition in the East?
  • Thoughts on South Carolina’s spring game

30-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including recapping the South Carolina spring game, Gus Malzahn staying mum regarding Jarrett Stidham, a breakout season for Big Kat Bryant looking likely, and Florida quarterbacks stinking up the Gators scrimmage.

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