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 keep the Bulldogs on top of the SEC. On episode No. 822 (Nov. 9, 2018) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about what ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit thinks will happen between Georgia and Auburn.

Georgia football podcast: Kirk Herbstreit thinks UGA fans could make the difference vs. Auburn

Beginning of the show: The home-field advantage and quarterback Jake Fromm should be enough to lead Georgia to victory over Auburn according to ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit. I’ll talk about what Herbstreit said on today’s show and why a raucous crowd could also benefit UGA’s recruiting efforts as well.

10-minute mark: Despite the fact that Herbstreit seems to have high expectations for Fromm Saturday, other national media members have paid extra attention to UGA running backs D’Andre Swift this week. I’ll discuss whether the Bulldogs’ tandem of running backs can pick up where they left off last week — when they both eclipsed 100 yards rushing at Kentucky.

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

  • The long list of four and 5-star recruits expected to be hosted by UGA Saturday
  • Another high-profile game for 5-star wide receiver — and UGA commit — Dominick Blaylock, whose game vs. Camden County will be televised in Georgia Friday night
  • Reaction to 4-star defensive back D.J. Daniel’s commitment
  • And an update on 4-star running back Noah Cain — who told DawgNation he plans on attending UGA’s game next Saturday vs. UMASS

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including a funny story about how Florida quarterback Kyle Trask’s father might’ve accidentally revealed the Gators’ plans to spring a trick play on South Carolina, as well as Gamecocks coach Will Muschamp’s candid comments about how his career could have turned out differently if quarterback Will Grier hadn’t gotten injured as a freshman when both were at Florida in 2014.

40-minute mark: I discuss the response from Auburn fans to the Tigers’ record — which is well-below preseason expectations.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater and send well wishes to the UGA basketball teams — which begin their seasons Friday night.
