Georgia football podcast: ESPN warns UGA about Appalachian State

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. 522 (Aug. 29, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear a discussion about Georgia’s upcoming game vs. Appalachian State.

Georgia football podcast: ESPN warns UGA about Appalachian State

Beginning of the show: ESPN writer Alex Scarbrough recently wrote that a winning September for Georgia means not overlooking its season opener vs. Appalachian State. Based on UGA coach Kirby Smart’s comments from Monday, UGA looking past the Mountaineers seems unlikely. I’ll talk more about this subject on today’s show.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics discussed include:

  • Why 5-star quarterback Justin Fields was in Athens, Ga., over the weekend
  • UGA’s decision to extend a preferred walk-on offer to Fields’ high school teammate, wide receiver Stephen Peterson
  • Four-star linebacker Adam Anderson’s 3 1/2-sack performance for Rome High School against Fields and Harrison High School on Friday
  • The chances UGA takes another recruiting look at two of Anderson’s teammates — defensive ends Jamarcus Chatman and Jaquon Griffin
  • The upcoming visit by 5-star offensive guard Jamaree Salyer to Athens to see the Bulldogs in action against Appalachian State

35-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including the move of the LSU-BYU game to New Orleans,  the gamesmanship between Florida coach Jim McElwain and Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh ahead of the showdown between the Gators and Wolverines on Saturday, and questions about whether some recruiting losses from Florida could hurt the team this season.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
