Georgia football podcast: Florida player calls UGA predictions ‘a slap in the face’

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. 506 (Aug. 7, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear a discussion about why Florida defensive end CeCe Jefferson is unhappy many media members have picked Georgia to win the SEC East.

Georgia football podcast: Florida player calls UGA predictions ‘a slap in the face’

Beginning of the show: Florida defensive end CeCe Jefferson is complaining about what he views as a lack of respect for the Gators from many media members. On the Monday show, I discuss why Florida shouldn’t be considered the East favorite, despite winning the conference the last two seasons.

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

  • Whether UGA freshman quarterback Jake Fromm will redshirt this season
  • The entertaining side of offensive coordinator Jim Chaney that he put on display during his media session on Saturday
  • The reluctance of Georgia coaches to play running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel at the same time
  • The impressive early performance of freshman running back D’Andre Swift
  • Thoughts on sophomore wide receiver Mecole Hardman’s role in the UGA offense
  • And an assessment of freshman defensive back Ameer Speed

30-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including Tennessee athletic director John Currie’s defense of Vols coach Butch Jones, Tennessee offensive lineman Chance Hall’s knee injury, a swipe at South Carolina from an in-state program other than Clemson, and 4-star running back Dameon Pierce’s commitment to Florida

35-minute mark: ESPN’s Trevor Matich says Notre Dame is a College Football Playoff contender, and the reason why he thinks the Fighting Irish will beat UGA probably will anger some fans.

End of show: I talk about some changes around Sanford Stadium this fall.
