Georgia football podcast: Why UGA fans should expect big season from Nick Chubb

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. 482 (July 4, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear a discussion about recruiting news coming out of The Opening finals in Beaverton, Ore. — including what 4-star wide receiver Josh Vann said about 5-star quarterback Justin Fields.

Beginning of the show: Pro Football Focus tweeted some interesting stats regarding Georgia running back Nick Chubb that demonstrate how different Chubb’s 2016 performance was from his 2014 freshman year. These numbers should give hope to UGA fans that Chubb should have a much better senior season. I explain why.

10-minute mark: SEC Country recruiting analyst Hale McGranahan joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Why 4-star defensive end Stephon Wynn chose Alabama over UGA
  • What Wynn had to say at his commitment ceremony
  • The challenges UGA face in recruiting head-to-head with the Crimson Tide
  • Why 4-star wide receiver Josh Vann calls South Carolina his leader
  • And the impact of 5-star quarterback Justin Fields on Vann’s eventual decision

20-minute mark: I look at some other SEC headlines including what Florida quarterback Malik Zaire’s father had to say about Zaire’s future with the Gators, why one writer thinks Auburn is the SEC’s most fun team to watch, and South Carolina’s pursuit to trademark one of its popular slogans.

End of show: I wish DawgNation a happy Independence Day and remind the audience the show will be back on Facebook Live on Wednesday.
