Brandon Adams

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. 528 (Sept. 6, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear a discussion about Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm and coach Kirby Smart and Saturday’s game vs. Notre Dame.

Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart cautions Notre Dame game not ‘Jake Fromm Show’

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart said Tuesday that Saturday’s game plan against Notre Dame won’t rest solely on the shoulders of UGA freshman quarterback Jake Fromm. Smart said Fromm would have to also rely on the other 10 offensive players on the field. I’ll share audio from Smart talking about Fromm on today’s show, and suggest a name who could be among the Bulldogs players to lead UGA to a win.

10-minute mark: Is a quarterback controversy for UGA unavoidable? Some fans have suggested it is, but there’s something Jacob Eason could do this week to prevent that. I’ll explain more about that topic on the show.

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

  • Whether Fromm’s leadership has the potential to overcome his lack of leadership
  • Thoughts on Eason’s injury revovery
  • Impressions of UGA after an easy win vs. Appalachian State
  • And whether Mike would have enjoyed playing in a historic venue like Notre Dame Stadium

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including a Florida player critical of coaches’ decisions after Saturday’s loss to Michigan, and some negative comments about Butch Jones from one writer.

35-minute mark: Former UGA quarterback David Greene joins the show to give his thoughts on Fromm and Eason, and to preview an autograph signing by former UGA stars next Saturday at Tailgate Apparel in Athens, Ga. before the Samford game.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and announce the return of the G8R H8R t-shirts to the ShopDawgNation store.
