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 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. 745 (July 19, 2018) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about how some comments from SEC Media Days prove Georgia fans are building a strong reputation.

Georgia football podcast: SEC Media Days prove UGA fans developing impressive reputation

Beginning of the show: I discuss comments from Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald, who praised Georgia fans for their noise during Georgia’s victory against Fitzgerald’s team last season in Athens. After Florida’s CeCe Jefferson said he would have liked to play in Athens, Fitzgerald’s perspective is further proof that Georgia fans are developing a notable reputation within the SEC. It’s nice to see Bulldogs fans receiving praise like this as Georgia becomes more of a national power.

12-minute mark: I discuss how Georgia is lucky that coach Kirby Smart appears to be a collection of the best traits of Jeremy Pruitt and Mark Richt. The recent controversy surrounding Aaron Murray’s comments about Pruitt shows how fortunate Bulldogs fans are to have someone like Smart leading the program.

15-minute mark: SEC Country Live’s Mike Johnson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Do SEC championships still matter?
  • Johnson’s thoughts on Pruitt
  • Johnson’s thoughts on Smart’s presence during SEC Media Days in Atlanta
  • Nick Saban’s comments about Alabama’s quarterback situation
  • Johnson’s thoughts about how he’s approaching his preseason SEC ballot

35-minute mark: I look at other headlines from around the SEC, including the Thursday schedule for SEC Media Days featuring Auburn, Vanderbilt and South Carolina. I also speak about Saban’s comments about the possibility of quarterback Jalen Hurts transferring and Texas coach Tom Herman addressing the chance of renewing the Longhorns’ rivalry with Texas A&M.

40-minute mark: I unveil the latest Dawg Day Q&A, which asks whether you think SEC championships still are important.

End of Show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
