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.

Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart embraces championship expectations

Beginning of the show: Many critics have suggested Georgia has fallen short of expectations in recent years. On Tuesday, Kirby Smart gave voice to the concerns of restless fans when he acknowledged at SEC Media Days that the goal for UGA should be to win championships. I’ll discuss that point on the show Wednesday.

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

  • Smart’s remarks about Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason
  • An update on defensive lineman Trent Thompson
  • The outlook for Mecole Hardman on offense
  • The latest on the two incoming freshmen who have yet to enroll in classes — defensive tackle Devonte Wyatt and outside linebacker Robert Beal
  • And what the potential presence of another 5-star quarterback in Georgia’s 2018 class could mean for Jake Fromm’s chances of redshirting this season

25-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including a high price tag for a chance to meet Nick Saban, a humorless response from Florida coach Jim McElwain when asked again about the infamous shark photo, and a surprising criticism from one SEC Network analyst regarding Kentucky defensive tackle Matt Elam.

End of show: I address Fromm’s chances of redshirting.
