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. 561 (Oct. 23, 2017) of the podcast, UGA fans can hear a discussion about Georgia rivalry with Florida.

Georgia football podcast: A reminder why Florida should be considered UGA’s biggest rival

Beginning of the show: Florida is the game for Georgia that should matter more than any other. That’s been a common theme on DawgNation Daily for the last year, but on the Monday show it seems appropriate to revisit this topic as a reminder of why the game vs. the Gators is so important.

10-minute mark: We hear a call back to last December when then-UGA commit Richard LeCounte revealed his desire to see a turnaround in the series vs. Florida.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Chip Towers joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • A description of the scene around 5-star quarterback — and UGA commit — Justin Fields on Thursday in what turned out to be Fields’ final high school game
  • Chip’s opinion of where Florida ranks on UGA’s list of rivals
  • Chip’s assertion that this series will never leave its longtime neutral site home in Jacksonville, Fla.
  • The role that Bulldogs seniors — including running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel — could play in ending UGA’s losing streak vs. Florida
  • And an update on two of UGA’s injured players — defensive tackle Trent Thompson and wide receiver Terry Godwin

30-minute mark: I discuss some of the most important SEC games from last Saturday, including another blowout for Alabama vs. Tennessee, LSU’s winning streak — which grew again Saturday, and a look at whether convincing wins for Notre Dame and Mississippi State provided a boost to Georgia’s College Football Playoff resume.

35-minute mark: I add some more names of DawgNation Daily listeners and viewers to our Gator Hater Roll Call.

End of show: I discuss the historic significance of UGA’s two-touchdown point spread vs. Florida.
