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. 708 (May 18, 2018) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about how Georgia seemingly is avoiding quarterback drama at the moment, while Alabama possibly is on the verge of controversy.

Georgia football podcast: Unlike Alabama, UGA avoiding QB drama

Beginning of the show: At first glance, many seem to think Georgia’s quarterback competition involving sophomore Jake Fromm and freshman Justin Fields is similar to the tandem battling at Alabama — Jalen Hurts and Tua Tagovailoa. However, the latest developments in Alabama make that scenario quite different from what’s currently taking place at UGA. I’ll explain why on the show.

10-minute mark: I share some new details on some key offseason storylines — including the possible transfer of quarterback Stetson Bennett, the uncertain status of incoming freshman defensive tackle Tramel Walthour and Fromm’s chances of joining the Heisman conversation.

15-minute mark: DawgNation recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include …

  • A report from IMG Academy after the Ascenders’ spring game Thursday night
  • The latest on UGA’s 2019 running back recruiting efforts — including details on Trey Sanders and John Emery Jr.
  • Whether UGA should consider offering Bennett a scholarship
  • UGA’s chances with 5-star tackle Darnell Wright

40-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines including Bet Online’s release of predicted win totals for some of the league’s teams, and some growing tension among Alabama, Auburn and Tennessee over graduate transfer offensive lineman Brandon Kennedy.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and discuss an interesting tidbit from Jeff regarding UGA being more involved in former Florida State great Deion Sanders’ recruitment than many realized at the time.
