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 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. 1,248 (July 30, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about why the proposed 10-game conference-only schedule the SEC could adopt could possibly be disastrous for Florida.

Georgia football podcast: 10-game conference schedule could be disastrous for UGA rival

Beginning of the show: The SEC is considering adopting a 10-game conference-only schedule according to reports, and I’ll explain on today’s show why that plan could prove to be bad news for Georgia’s biggest rival, the Florida Gators.

10-minute mark: I’ll discuss why — if the extra conference games are added as expected — UGA coach Kirby Smart might not have the same view of the scenario as many fans.

15-minute mark: Mr. College Football Tony Barnhart joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • The battle seemingly being waged by the SEC and ACC over scheduling models and the timing of their announcements
  • The possible fate of UGA’s in-state rivalry with Georgia Tech
  • And the likely timing of an announcement from the SEC

30-minute mark: I discuss some comments from LSU coach Ed Orgeron defending his offensive coordinator, Steve Ensminger, and downplaying the departure of former passing game coordinator Joe Brady — who became Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator during the offseason.

35-minute mark: I discuss the possibility the proposed SEC schedule changes could become permanent.

End of show: I invite DawgNation Daily listeners and viewers to check out the return of Cover Four Live — featuring Mike Griffith, Jeff Sentell, Connor Riley and myself — at its new time, 6:00 pm ET on Thursday night, on the DawgNation video channels. I also share the Gator Hater Updater.
