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. 567 (Oct. 31, 2017) of the podcast, UGA fans can hear a discussion about why one national radio host is wrong about UGA’s playoff chances.

Georgia football podcast: Here’s why one outspoken critic of UGA is wrong

Beginning of the show: Georgia doesn’t belong in the College Football Playoff, according to FOX Sports Radio host Colin Cowherd. I’ll explain why he’s wrong on the show Tuesday. I’ll discuss how UGA compares to other national contenders and explain why the perceived gap between the Bulldogs and Alabama is closing.

10-minute mark: I share some audio from UGA coach Kirby Smart discussing linebackers Roquan Smith and Lorenzo Carter, as well as running back Sony Michel.

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

  • 2019 cornerback Jalen Perry’s commitment to UGA
  • The possibility 4-star safety Tyreke Johnson is no longer on UGA’s radar
  • A prediction about a 5-star linebacker in the class of 2019 ― Owen Pappoe ― who is expected to release a list of finalists Tuesday
  • UGA earning a finalist spot for 4-star defensive tackle Trevor Trout
  • 4-star tight end Luke Ford’s plans to visit UGA on Saturday

30-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including some strange comments from LSU running back Derrius Guice about Alabama’s defense, some rumors about possible replacements for Jim McElwain at Florida, and a reaction to Tennessee athletic director John Currie’s comments about the Volunteers’ still-employed-for-now coach, Butch Jones.

35-minute mark: Cox Media’s senior football analyst Oliver Connolly joins the show to discuss his recent article examining UGA quarterback Jake Fromm.

End of show: I preview the possibility UGA is named No. 1 team in the country by the College Football Playoff selection committee Tuesday night.
