Georgia football podcast: ESPN praises UGA’s legacy of great linebackers

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. 1,495 (Aug. 2, 2021) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about ESPN ranking Georgia as its so-called “Linebacker University,” and thoughts on what that legacy could mean for the Bulldogs this season.

Georgia football podcast: ESPN praises UGA’s legacy of great linebackers

Beginning of the show: Georgia has produced a number of great players in recent seasons, but according to ESPN, no position group has been better represented by the Bulldogs in the NFL than at linebacker. I’ll discuss more on that topic on today’s show and explain how UGA’s legacy at that position could serve to foreshadow how the Bulldogs could perform this season.

10-minute mark: I recap key details from a busy weekend for UGA recruiting.

15-minute mark: Former UGA All-American Jon Stinchcomb joins the show to preview the start of UGA’s summer practices -- which begin later this week.

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including the continued fallout from Texas and Oklahoma joining the SEC.

End of show: I award Florida coach Dan Mullen a Golden Shoe and mock him for the ridiculous video of him dancing with recruits that came to light over the weekend, and I update the Gator Hater Countdown.

After the show: I take questions and comments as part of the Podcast Cool Down.
