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. 687 (April 18, 2018) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about a UGA rival getting criticized for its spring game circus.

Georgia football podcast: UGA rival criticized for spring game ‘circus’

Beginning of the show: Florida’s spring game was a “circus” according to critics in attendance Saturday. I’ll explain why Georgia is likely to offer a stark contrast to what the Gators displayed when it competes in its G-Day scrimmage on Saturday. (Note: The quotes referenced during this portion of the show can be found here, here and here.)

10-minute mark: I share a clip of UGA kicker Rodrigo Blankenship’s new hip-hop song, and tell UGA fans in central Georgia how they can get a book signed by legendary former coach Vince Dooley courtesy of Kroger.

15-minute mark: SEC Country’s Mike Johnson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Fair to criticize Florida for spring game?
  • What should teams try to accomplish during spring scrimmages?
  • For UGA, what are you looking to see at G-Day?
  • Do teams feed off the energy from the crowd if the stadium is full for spring games?
  • Thoughts on Justin Fields making UGA debut Saturday.
  • Bookmakers expecting big season from UGA.

30-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including Kirk Herbstreit offering a blunt assessment of Jalen Hurts, quarterback Jake Allen leaving Florida, Auburn giving players rings for winning the SEC West, Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt saying offense won the Vols’ most recent scrimmage, and national writer Andy Staples addressing quarterback competitions.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown, thank DawgNation Daily listeners and viewers for attending our event at Marlow’s in Brookhaven, and congratulate the Diamond Dawgs for their win vs. Clemson.
