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. 705 (May 15, 2018) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about national media expecting big things from UGA’s new-look running game.

Beginning of the show: Georgia running backs D’Andre Swift, Elijah Holyfield and Brian Herrien should be more than capable of replacing departed UGA stars Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, according to some in the national media. I’ll talk more on the show about that subject.

11-minute mark: National radio host Colin Cowherd thinks Chubb will win NFL Rookie of the Year honors this season. I’ll share audio from Cowherd explaining his thinking.

15-minute mark: DawgNation recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show for the Marlow’s Tavern Tell-All. Some of the topics include:

  • Thoughts on 5-star defensive tackle Travon Walker.
  • Why didn’t UGA recruit 5-star offensive lineman Wanya Morris more?
  • Could wide receiver Jermaine Burton’s de-commitment from Miami be good news for UGA?
  • Do Auburn fans have any reason to think they have a shot with 5-star wide receiver Jadon Haselwood?
  • Thoughts on 5-star wide receiver Dominick Blaylock shutting down recruitment.
  • Is quarterback Ryan Hilinski wavering on his commitment to South Carolina?
  • 5-star linebacker Brandon Smith is ready to announce his commitment. Does UGA have a chance?

35-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including: Jalen Hurts getting photographed training with an Iron Bowl rival; star offensive lineman Trey Smith possibly returning to Tennessee; Will Muschamp becoming a problem for Florida; and ESPN’s Chris Low saying that Nick Saban will coach into his 70s.

Dawg Day Q&A: Which former UGA star will have the most NFL success?

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and talk more about the Diamond Dawgs’ upcoming series against Arkansas.
