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 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. 1,275 (Sept. 8, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about why Georgia isn’t likely to suffer from a lack of physicality to begin the season the way Navy did vs. BYU Monday night.

Georgia football podcast: UGA likely to avoid mistake at least one program already made

Beginning of the show: BYU’s dominant win at Navy was the talk of college football Monday night — especially after Midshipmen coach Ken Niumatalolo took the blame for the humbling defeat due to his decision to avoid live tackling during practice as a way of preventing a coronavirus outbreak. I’ll explain on today’s show why Georgia isn’t likely to make the same mistake based on some recent comments from UGA coach Kirby Smart.

Five-minute mark: I discuss the latest on the Bulldogs’ quarterback competition after the second preseason scrimmage Saturday.

10-minute mark: I react to three-star wide receiver Jackson Meeks commitment and address reports UGA offensive coordinator Todd Monken could be a candidate for the Southern Mississippi head coaching opening.

15-minute mark: DawgNation analyst — and former UGA All-American — Jon Stinchcomb joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Reaction to quarterback Jamie Newman’s departure from UGA
  • The importance of physical practices
  • And a reflection on the fact UGA’s first game was originally scheduled for Monday night

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including Florida coach Dan Mullen stirring the pot with UGA once again and an update on a major recruiting weekend for LSU that was viewed by many as an attempt to copy a similar gathering in Athens, Ga. a few weeks ago.

35-minute mark: I discuss UGA’s tight end depth.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
