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 cast of DawgNation experts as they discuss UGA coach Kirby Smart’s quest to return the Bulldogs to the top of the SEC and break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news. On episode No. 570 (Nov. 3, 2017) of the podcast, UGA fans can hear a discussion about why some may hope Georgia doesn’t stay at No. 1.

Georgia football podcast: Analyst says CFP committee could root against UGA

Beginning of the show: The College Football Playoff selection committee hopes UGA will eventually lose? CBS Sports analyst Gary Danielson says the answer is potentially yes. He doesn’t see any kind of bias against UGA though. His reasoning is based more on the committee’s desire to get multiple conferences in the playoff discussion. I’ll talk more about UGA’s playoff scenarios on the show.

10-minute mark: I’ll play audio of UGA coach Kirby Smart previewing the Saturday game vs. South Carolina and discuss UGA’s path to “own the East,” which could unfold this weekend.

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

  • The visitors list expected for the South Carolina game
  • The chances Georgia could flip 5-star offensive tackle Cade Mays from Tennessee
  • Another Tennessee commit ― 4-star WR Alontae Taylor ― planning an official visit to UGA
  • Five-star linebacker Owen Pappoe including Georgia in his top three
  • And a preview of the Dixie Vodka Post Game Show immediately after the game Saturday from the UGA bookstore on the DawgNation Facebook page

35-minute mark: I preview other top SEC games on the Saturday schedule, including Auburn-Texas A&M, Florida-Missouri, Ole Miss-Kentucky and LSU-Alabama. I also take a look at some games from other conferences that impact the College Football Playoff rankings.

40-minute mark: I explain why Georgia running back Elijah Holyfield is the perfect example of why the Bulldogs’ practices have been so much tougher this season and have prepared the team for success.

End of show: I invite DawgNation to enjoy a wonderful weekend and give some final thoughts on the South Carolina game.
