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. 486 (July 10, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear a discussion about a candid description from Georgia coach Kirby Smart and why he likes a particular practice drill.

Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart reveals an intriguing aspect of his coaching philosophy

Beginning of the show: I share a clip from a recent video of Georgia coach Kirby Smart explaining why he’s fond of the evolution of the so-called “Oklahoma” practice drill. I also describe why Smart’s fondness for this drill is reflected in his recruiting priorities at UGA.

10-minute mark: SEC Country’s Alex Martin Smith joins the show to preview SEC Media Days. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Whether UGA will be the media’s pick to win the SEC East
  • How many writers will pick someone other than Alabama to win the SEC West
  • What questions Smart will face this week when he meets the media
  • A preview of Monday’s appearances — including Arkansas coach Bret Bielema, LSU coach Ed Orgeron and Tennessee coach Butch Jones
  • The possibility things get tense between Jones and the media regarding his job status with the Vols
  • And Alex’s belief that 2017 is “The Year of the Quarterback” in the SEC

25-minute mark: I look at some other SEC headlines, including Bielema’s wife giving birth to a baby daughter, the growing tension between Florida and LSU and what the SEC Country staff members covering SEC Media Days believe will be the conference’s top games this season.

End of show: I talk about Chip Towers’ recent column about whether UGA should do more to honor Herschel Walker.
