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. 1,170 (April 8, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about a mistake that some well-known coaches have recently made that UGA coach Kirby Smart will probably always find a way to avoid.

Georgia football podcast: One mistake Kirby Smart won’t ever make

Beginning of the show: Some college football coaches have recently spoken out and shared their opinions on the coronavirus — including how and when the shutdowns will eventually end. The coaches — such as Clemson’s Dabo Swinney and Oklahoma State’s Mike Gundy — certainly have a right to express themselves, but their rights arguably conflict with their best interests when it comes to creating unnecessary distractions around their programs. I’ll explain on today’s show why Georgia coach Kirby Smart doesn’t seem to have a problem avoiding the temptation to wade into controversy.

10-minute mark: I’ll discuss the UGA players Smart singled out as having impressed during the offseason workouts prior to the coronavirus shutdown.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Mike Griffith joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • The ways in which UGA’s athletic department can make use of its substantial reserve fund
  • Why UGA defensive lineman Malik Herring fits the profile of one of the Bulldogs’ most underrated players
  • And a discussion about former UGA quarterback Jake Fromm

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including the continued fallout from Mississippi State coach Mike Leach’s controversial tweet which referenced a noose, a strong NFL draft take regarding former Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and an odd comment from Tagovailoa regarding his relationship with Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
