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 DawgNation experts as they break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news and discuss coach Kirby Smart’s quest to return the Bulldogs to the top of the SEC. On episode No. 1,069 (Nov. 8, 2019) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about why the 2019 defense has been better than any Kirby Smart has had as UGA coach.

Georgia football podcast: One big reason this is Kirby Smart’s best UGA defense

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart has led a number of quality defenses since becoming UGA coach — including the 2017 unit which propelled the Bulldogs to the College Football Playoff. However, I’ll explain on today’s show why the Bulldogs’ current defense is his best yet.

10-minute mark: I’ll discuss why UGA is likely to lean heavily on running back D’Andre Swift and wide receiver Lawrence Cager down the stretch.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • The latest on 5-star linebacker Noah Sewell
  • An update on 4-star defensive lineman Zykeivous Walker
  • Thoughts on new UGA commit Jared Wilson
  • A preview of which Bulldogs players might claim redshirts
  • And an early look at some early enrollees for the 2020 class

40-minute mark: I discuss the LSU-Alabama game, as well as Vanderbilt-Florida and Tennessee-Kentucky. I also react to the odd rumor from two NFL Network reporters connecting former Florida State great Deion Sanders to the Seminoles’ coaching job.

45-minute mark: I discuss UGA’s scheduled home-and-home with Ohio State, and preview the UGA-Missouri game — including a busy Saturday of broadcasts on the DawgNation video channels.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
