Georgia football podcast: Candid comments from anonymous coaches reveal UGA’s concerns

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. 510 (Aug. 11, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear a discussion about what some anonymous coaches told Sports Illustrated about what to expect from Georgia this season.

Georgia football podcast: Candid comments from anonymous coaches reveal UGA’s concerns

Beginning of the show: Georgia was ranked No. 16 in Sports Illustrated’s Preseason Top 25, and in a follow-up article, SI gathered quotes from coaches speaking anonymously about the Bulldogs’ biggest concerns for the upcoming season. I’ll talk Friday about what the coaches mentioned and what Kirby Smart said about those issues earlier this week.

15-minute mark: DawgNation recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Jeff’s recent conversation with 4-star defensive back Tyreke Johnson
  • Johnson’s thoughts on 5-star quarterback Justin Fields
  • The chances UGA can get involved with 4-star cornerback Nadab Joseph, who de-committed from LSU on Thursday.
  • The early practice performances of freshmen D’Andre Swift, Mark Webb and Andrew Thomas

35-minute mark: I talk about some other SEC headlines, including an NFL scout calling some Tennessee players “soft,” what the coaches told SI about the other SEC teams ranked in the preseason Top 25, and the embarrassing blunder involving Texas A&M earlier this week.

40-minute mark: I play audio of UGA coach Kirby Smart chastising the media for over-hyping freshmen based on some of Smart’s previous comments.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
