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. 1,156 (March 19, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about how the upcoming change to UGA’s schedule could impact the way some fans view its rivalries.

Georgia football podcast: UGA’s relationship with some of its rivals could soon change

Beginning of the show: Georgia will play two of its biggest rivals at a different point in the season starting in 2020. The Auburn game will be moved to October, and the Tennessee series will shift to November. I’ll discuss on today’s show how that schedule change could impact the way those rivalries will be viewed in the future. I’ll also discuss an SEC rivalry that might be about to become less intense than it’s been, and another that seems to be turning up the intensity.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Mike Griffith joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • The sadness associated with the cancelation of UGA’s spring sports
  • How the football program will respond to the altered schedule caused by the coronavirus pandemic
  • And thoughts on SEC commissioner Greg Sankey’s statement about possibly conducting some spring practices at some point

30-minute mark: I discuss ESPN’s fictitious football tournament — which slotted UGA as a three seed and then had the Bulldogs advancing to the “national championship game,” where it “lost” to Ohio State.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
