Georgia football podcast: National Signing Day success is the only way to build national champions

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. 1,127 (Feb. 7, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about the relationship between success on National Signing Day and eventually winning national championships.

Georgia football podcast: National Signing Day success is the only way to build national champions

Beginning of the show: Georgia fans celebrated another No. 1 recruiting class this week, but that success only leaves some wondering when it will result in UGA also winning a long-awaited national championship. I’ll discuss on today’s show why the recruiting wins the Bulldogs have recently collected are typically the precursor to wins on the field, and I’ll explain why I believe UGA fans’ patience will eventually be rewarded.

10-minute mark: I’ll share audio of what UGA coach Kirby Smart had to say about new quarterback Jamie Newman and new offensive coordinator Todd Monken.

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

  • The impact five-star tackle Broderick Jones and four-star center Sedrick Van Pran-Granger should be able to make as freshmen
  • A description of what the Bulldogs are getting in three-star wide receiver signee Ladd McConkey
  • Why 2021 offensive line prospect Jared Wilson de-c0mmitted from UGA this week
  • And an early preview of the key dates and names to know for the upcoming cycle

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including five-star defensive lineman Jordan Burch officially signing with South Carolina, Florida reportedly hiring Tim Brewster (most recently at North Carolina) as tight ends coach, Tennessee athletic director Phillip Fulmer proclaiming the “Vols are back” and the weird saga of an apparently-fake Ole Miss commit.

40-minute mark: I share audio of a funny National Signing Day rant from Alabama coach Nick Saban that UGA fans will enjoy, and preview a busy weekend for the Bulldogs in sports other than football.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
