Georgia football podcast: Don’t lump UGA into group of ‘grumpy’ SEC teams

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. 539 (Sept. 21, 2017) of the podcast, UGA fans can hear a discussion about why one analyst thinks a lot of SEC fans are “grumpy,” and why UGA doesn’t belong in that group.

Georgia football podcast: Don’t lump UGA into group of ‘grumpy’ SEC teams

Beginning of the show: On the Wednesday episode of the Paul Finebaum Show, CBS Sports analyst Gary Danielson said he believed most SEC fans are “grumpy” right now. FOX Sports’ Colin Cowherd also suggested most SEC teams are heading for disappointing seasons. However, on this show, I’ll explain why it’s way too soon to include Georgia in those conversations.

10-minute mark: I’ll share audio of Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald talking about why he wasn’t recruited by UGA.

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

  • How Georgia’s defense matches up against Fitzgerald
  • Whether UGA quarterback Jake Fromm is ready for his first SEC start
  • What happens when UGA’s original starting quarterback — Jacob Eason — returns from injury
  • The timeline for Eason’s return
  • What to expect from UGA running back Nick Chubb vs. Mississippi State
  • Whether fans should expect more “Wild Dawg” plays Saturday
  • Kirby Smart’s defense of his offensive line earlier in the week
  • Tight end Isaac Nauta’s apparent absence from UGA’s game plan
  • And the chances Malkom Parrish returns from injury Saturday

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines, including love for Kentucky from a couple of SEC coaches, more fallout from Tennessee’s loss to Florida, and more bad news for LSU.

35-minute mark: Mississippi State radio analyst — and former Bulldogs quarterback — Matt Wyatt joins the show to preview the Saturday game.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
