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 delivers good news regarding freshman OT Isaiah Wilson

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart talks about freshman offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson beginning the process of slimming down as he prepares for his first series of summer practices. This is good news for UGA, given Wilson’s opportunity to earn a starting spot this season. I’ll talk about that on the show and share audio of Smart describing a fun getaway he recently enjoyed with his freshmen players.

10-minute mark: SEC Country’s Mike Johnson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Why Smart’s day with his players on the lake is similar to what Alabama coach Nick Saban has done with his players in the past
  • The process Wilson is taking to get himself into the physical condition UGA coaches want for him
  • Why additions such as Ahkil Crumpton are important for the Bulldogs
  • The significance of UGA’s game this season vs. Florida
  • And the chances the SEC champion could be left out of the College Football Playoff

25-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including a couple of former SEC coaches beginning TV careers, a surprising distinction for Tennessee coach Butch Jones, a debatable comment from LSU coach Ed Orgeron, and a huge compliment for Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway.

End of show: I preview the Friday edition of the program, including a return appearance from former UGA coach Jim Donnan.
