Georgia football podcast: Bigger is apparently better for Kirby Smart’s UGA

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 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. 723 (June 18, 2018) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about UGA’s two commitments from the weekend.

Georgia football podcast: Bigger is apparently better for Kirby Smart’s UGA

Beginning of the show: Georgia added two new members to its 2019 class over the weekend with quarterback John Rhys Plumlee and 4-star offensive lineman Xavier Truss — who is listed at 6-foot-7 and 350 pounds. I’ll talk on our show about why Truss’ UGA pledge is seemingly another example of Georgia coach Kirby Smart’s commitment to extra-large offensive linemen.

10-minute mark: Replacing departed linebackers is a major concern for UGA, according to a recent ESPN article. I’ll share audio of how former Bulldogs linebacker Roquan Smith feels about the candidates to step into his position.

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

  • Chip’s thoughts on the new-look UGA linebacking corps
  • Depth issues for the UGA secondary
  • An early look at why UGA might have some extra motivation vs. Georgia Tech
  • Fan expectations for the upcoming season
  • And reaction to new NCAA rules governing redshirts and transfers

30-minute mark: I look at other SEC headlines, including some apparent criticism from former LSU coach Les Miles regarding current Tigers coach Ed Orgeron, some well wishes to new LSU quarterback Joe Burrow from Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, a comment from an NFL wide receiver that new Missouri offensive coordinator Derek Dooley probably won’t like, and another suggested SEC schedule change.

35-minute mark: I unveil the latest Dawg Day Q&A.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
