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. 446 (May 15, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear a discussion about why the UGA defense might be the catalyst for success this season.

Georgia football podcast: Will ‘old school formula’ give UGA dominant defense?

Beginning of the show: Georgia struggled offensively in 2016, and there are hopes for a better outcome this season. However while much of the national media’s attention is focused on sophomore quarterback Jacob Eason and running back Nick Chubb, UGA fans are content to talk about the other side of the ball — and a defense which could draw comparisons to the units led by the legendary Erk Russell.

10 minute mark: DawgNation’s recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • The chances former UGA commit Adam Anderson would reconsider his pledge to the Bulldogs
  • The status of Georgia’s relationship with 2019 linebacker Owen Pappoe
  • An evaluation of offensive tackle Owen Condon
  • some possible good news involving UGA’s relationship with 4-star wide receiver Kearis Jackson
  • Why recruits are impressed with the pitch they’ve gotten from UGA’s newest assistant — Tray Scott
  • And the unusual story of offensive lineman Daniel Faalele

35 minute mark: I take a look at some other headlines from around the SEC including a former SEC coach who thinks Auburn and Missouri should swap divisions, a transfer wide receiver landing at LSU, and continued efforts by Florida to recruit a couple quarterbacks from Georgia

End of show: I talk about a slimmed-down Netori Johnson and his chances for competing for a starting offensive line position this summer.
