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. 514 (Aug. 17, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear a discussion about what SEC Network analyst Marcus Spears thinks about Georgia’s defense.

Georgia football podcast: SEC Network analyst says UGA defense has ‘more knowns’ than Alabama

Beginning of the show: SEC Network analyst Marcus Spears said this week that although he still thinks Alabama has the SEC’s best defense, Georgia has made it close and probably has “more knowns” than the Crimson Tide. I’ll share audio from Spears on today’s show and talk about what the implications of Spears’ statement are for UGA this season.

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

  • The role athletic director Greg McGarity played in securing more night games for UGA
  • The chances sophomore quarterback Jacob Eason improves his accuracy
  • Freshman running back D’Andre Swift’s absence from UGA practice
  • The evolution of wide receiver Terry Godwin
  • And Mecole Hardman’s role in the Bulldogs offense

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines, including: former Auburn basketball great Charles Barkley speaking to Alabama’s football team; the chances Crimson Tide safety Minkah Fitzpatrick — or any defensive player — could be a Heisman contender; Auburn quarterback Sean White’s apparent satisfaction with the backup role; new details in the Hugh Freeze scandal; and former UGA defensive back Shaq Wiggins’ slow start at Tennessee.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
