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. 1,142 (Feb. 28, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about how new UGA quarterback Jamie Newman should be expected to perform in the bright spotlight that his predecessor, Jake Fromm, lived with these past three years.

Georgia football podcast: We’re about to find out if Jamie Newman’s ready for ‘limelight’ at UGA

Beginning of the show: Former Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm performed this week at the NFL scouting combine, and received a ton of attention while doing so — a feeling he almost certainly had grown familiar with during his time at UGA. I’ll discuss on today’s show something that Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said about Fromm this week that reminds us of the spotlight Bulldogs quarterbacks have to be comfortable with — including newcomer to the position, Jamie Newman.

10-minute mark: I share a portion of a fun interview with former UGA running back D’Andre Swift about his time with the Bulldogs.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Connor Riley joins the show to discuss his time in Indianapolis for the combine.

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including some high-profile names entering the transfer portal and a strong statement from Tennessee athletic director Phillip Fulmer against the proposed change to the transfer portal.

End of show: I thank the Atlanta International Auto Show for hosting us, preview the weekend for UGA athletics — including the three-game baseball series vs. Georgia Tech — and share the Gator Hater Updater.
