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. 554 (Oct. 12, 2017) of the podcast, UGA fans can hear a discussion about how the UGA offense could find another gear before the end of the season.

Georgia football podcast: The best may be yet to come for UGA offense

Beginning of the show: Georgia’s offense can take another step forward before the end of the season if it fully utilizes its talent  including two former 5-star recruits, tight end Isaac Nauta and wide receiver Mecole Hardman. I’ll share audio of what Nauta said Wednesday about his lack of involvement in UGA’s offense so far this year, and I’ll explain why it’s too soon to give up on Nauta or Hardman.

10-minute mark: I’ll have some fun with Nauta comparing himself to another UGA player — freshman offensive lineman Netori Johnson — who, like Nauta, enjoys a colorful hairstyle.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Seth Emerson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Seth’s thoughts on how UGA has used tight ends this season
  • Whether UGA coach Kirby Smart’s compliments about his team’s practices is a good sign for the game against Missouri on Saturday
  • An update on defensive tackle Trent Thompson and linebacker Reggie Carter
  • The latest on freshman safety Richard LeCounte, who has been absent from the stat sheet for the last two games
  • Whether Missouri’s offense is good enough to challenge UGA
  • Thoughts on UGA’s drug policy based on linebacker Natrez Patrick’s likely four-game suspension for his marijuana-related arrest
  • And how adding the dynamic of 5-star quarterback Justin Fields will impact UGA’s crowded quarterback situation

30-minute mark: I update some other stories around the SEC, including ESPN’s allegations of academic misconduct at Auburn, and two of Florida’s most important players being listed as questionable for the Gators’ meeting on Saturday with Texas A&M.

35-minute mark: DawgNation’s Roxie Jackson joins the show to preview the Kroger giveaway Saturday in Athens, Ga.

End of show: I discuss Miami coach Mark Richt’s complimentary words about UGA’s 6-0 start.
