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 DawgNation experts as they break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news and discuss coach Kirby Smart’s quest to return the Bulldogs to the top of the SEC. On episode No. 1,184 (April 29, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about the five players that could determine UGA’s national championship fate.

Georgia football podcast: 5 players that could determine UGA’s national championship fate

Beginning of the show: There are a few givens on Georgia’s roster for the upcoming season. The Bulldogs almost certainly will be paced by an impressive crop of freshmen and sophomores, and a number of upperclassmen have arguably already drawn the attention of NFL scouts. However, there are a few other players who are draft eligible for the upcoming season that could dramatically improve UGA’s chances of winning a national championship if they’re able to take the next step with their development. I’ll discuss who those players are on today’s show, and address what the realistic expectations are for them this season.

10-minute mark: DawgNation’s Mike Griffith joins the show to share his thoughts on my list including…

  • Running back Zamir White, who could emerge as the Bulldogs’ leading rusher
  • Wide receiver Demetris Robertson, who hopes to find the spark that allowed him to become a freshman All-American at Cal in 2016
  • Defensive tackle Jordan Davis, who could join the list of recent dominant defensive linemen in the SEC
  • And outside linebackers Azeez Ojulari and Jermaine Johnson, who could help the Bulldogs improve their pass rush

30-minute mark: I take a look at the movement to allow players to profit off their name, image and likeness. I also address the recent positive signs that suggest college football could return this fall.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
