Brandon Adams

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. 1,201 (May 24, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about why not all the hype growing around new UGA quarterback Jamie Newman is a bad thing – even for Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart, who usually goes out of his way to downplay excessive media attention.

Georgia football podcast: An example of Jamie Newman hype that Kirby Smart probably likes

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart typically goes out of his way to downplay hype for his team, his players and himself. He seemingly views excessive media attention as an unnecessary distraction that could detract from the goals UGA sets for itself. However, when it comes to battling programs such as Alabama and Clemson on the recruiting trail and their substantial national brands it seems safe to say not all hype is a bad thing. I’ll share an example of some good hype for new UGA quarterback Jamie Newman on today’s show.

10-minute mark: I discuss another interesting compliment for Newman given by a well-known quarterback coach this week on the Paul Finebaum Show.

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

  • The latest on four-star tight end Brock Bowers
  • An update on four-star pass rusher Dallas Turner
  • An update on the nation’s No. 1 player, defensive end Korey Foreman
  • And the latest on five-star cornerback Tony Grimes

35-minute mark: I share other headlines from around the SEC including the SEC’s vote to allow players to begin voluntarily returning to campus and a PSA featuring Alabama coach Nick Saban that went viral this week.

40-minute mark: I mock the growing number of analysts who’ve made their case for Florida winning the SEC East.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
