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. 752 (Aug. 2, 2018) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about how Urban Meyer’s situation at Ohio State could impact UGA recruiting.
Georgia football podcast: Allegations against Urban Meyer could impact UGA recruiting
Beginning of the show: I discuss Meyer’s situation at Ohio State and how the controversy in Columbus could have an impact on the Bulldogs’ recruiting efforts. I share audio from Meyer, reporter Brett McMurphy and Courtney Smith to give background information about Meyer’s shaky position at the moment. If something like this had happened years ago, it might’ve had minimal impact on UGA. But the Dawgs are a national program now, and trouble at Ohio State is something that will affect Georgia now.
10-minute mark: I discuss the holdout situation involving former UGA star Roquan Smith. I also share news about former Georgia star John Theus retiring from the NFL.
15-minute mark: Former UGA great Matt Stinchcomb joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:
- How does UGA bounce back from the good and bad of last season?
- How difficult is it to replace departed leaders?
- How would Stinchcomb handle quarterbacks Jake Fromm and Justin Fields?
- How fun is it for Stinchcomb to see UGA establishing such an impressive offensive line?
- Stinchcomb shares information about the Dawgs for Kids event Saturday night in Atlanta
40-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including Meyer’s tenure at Florida being revisited, Greg Schiano not being named Buckeyes interim coach after his experience almost becoming Tennessee’s coach, plus Lane Kiffin and Joe Moorhead being listed as among the betting options for possible Meyer replacements at Ohio State. I also provide an update on the DawgNation Season Preview and the return of Before the Hedges.
45-minute mark: I share the latest Dawg Day Q&A, which asks, “What do you want to see as part of the new Before the Hedges?”
End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
