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 break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news and discuss UGA coach Kirby Smart’s quest to return the Bulldogs to the top of the SEC. On episode No. 577 (Nov. 14, 2017) of the podcast, UGA fans can hear a discussion about what Georgia coach Kirby Smart wants from UGA fans.

Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart has a challenge for UGA fans

Beginning of the show: Saturday is the final home game for Georgia’s seniors, and UGA coach Kirby Smart is challenging fans to make it a special day for a group ― led by running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, as well as linebackers Lorenzo Carter and Davin Bellamy ― that will be fondly remembered for years to come. I’ll share audio of what Smart said, and talk about what that means for fans on the Tuesday show.

10-minute mark: I’ll announce our latest Own The East T-shirt winner and describe why Smart’s response to Auburn coach Gus Malzahn’s on-field boast was worth noticing.

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

  • 4-star defensive end Caleb Tannor’s de-commitment from UGA
  • 4-star offensive lineman Trey Hill’s comments about Auburn beating the Bulldogs
  • What 4-star tight end Ryland Goede would mean to UGA’s 2019 class
  • The chances UGA could earn a commitment from 4-star athlete ― and former Tennessee pledge ― Alontae Taylor
  • And why the Auburn game proved how important recruiting is along the lines of scrimmage

35-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines including more rumors of Chip Kelly being the choice for the Florida job, the ongoing discussion of Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen being in the mix for Tennessee, and an assessment of Auburn’s chances of making the College Football Playoff as a two-loss team.

40-minute mark: ESPN’s Mark Schlabach published an interesting stat demonstrating how UGA’s passing offense isn’t keeping pace with recent national championship teams. I’ll discuss what this means for the Bulldogs.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and invite DawgNation Daily listeners and viewers to participate in our Own The East T-shirt giveaway.
