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. 980 (July 8, 2019) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about why impressing 5-star tight end Arik Gilbert might also provide a pathway that could lead UGA to a national championship as well.

Beginning of the show: 5-star tight end Arik Gilbert will be watching UGA and other potential suitors for his services closely during the early weeks of the upcoming season to see how they’re using his position according to comments from Gilbert to DawgNation last week at the recruiting event known as The Opening. I’ll explain on today’s show why involving tight ends more in UGA’s offense — in addition to impressing Gilbert — might also be a formula for success for the Bulldogs.

10-minute mark: I’ll share audio from 5-star running back Kendall Milton which some have suggested might provide a hint about his eventual college destination.

15-minute mark: Former UGA All-American tight end Troy Sadowski joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • How UGA uses its tight ends
  • Sadowski’s thoughts on Gilbert
  • How UGA handles the pressure of expectations this season
  • And thoughts on former UGA coach and athletic director Vince Dooley, who’ll have the field at Sanford Stadium re-named in his honor during a ceremony before the home opener Sept. 7.

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including an update on national championship odds from Brett McMurphy.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
