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. 491 (July 17, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear a discussion about linebacker JD Bertrand and wide receiver Dominick Blaylock’s decision to commit to UGA.

Georgia football podcast: Reaction to LB JD Bertrand and WR Dominick Blaylock’s commitment

Beginning of the show: Georgia produced a big haul from a major recruiting weekend when a pair of highly-regarded 2019 recruits — linebacker JD Bertrand and wide receiver Dominick Blaylock — committed to UGA. What are the Bulldogs getting in these players, and what impact did their decision have on 5-star quarterback Justin Fields? I’ll discuss on our show.

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

  • Whether Georgia’s offensive line is strong enough to propel the Bulldogs to the top of the SEC East
  • UGA’s four first-team All-SEC selections — running back Nick Chubb, tight end Isaac Nauta, linebacker Roquan Smith, and defensive tackle Trent Thompson
  • The chances quarterback Jacob Eason takes a big step forward this season

25-minute mark: I look at some other SEC headlines including: the league’s media passing over Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham in the preseason All-SEC voting, Chubb beating out a strong collection of running backs for his preseason honor, and an explanation of why left tackle Martez Ivey might be Florida’s most important player.

End of show: I talk about mounting criticism of UGA athletic director Greg McGarity.
