Georgia football is the No. 1 topic every day on DawgNation Daily — the daily podcast for Georgia Bulldogs fans.

Georgia football podcast: The gap between UGA-Florida isn’t as close as Dan Mullen thinks

Beginning of the show: Florida coach Dan Mullen said after last season’s loss to Georgia that the gap between the two teams was just seven points — the margin of victory from the Bulldogs’ win. I’ll explain on today’s show why the chasm is actually far lager than that. I’ll also discuss an analystics site’s skepticism of the Gators for the upcoming season.

10-minute mark: I discuss the future of UGA athletic director Greg McGarity after last week’s meeting of the UGA Athletic Association’s board of directors.

15-minute mark: Former UGA All-American — and athletic board of directors member — Jon Stinchcomb joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Thoughts on McGarity
  • An update on the upcoming football facilities improvements
  • And a preview of UGA’s toughest SEC East competition foe the upcoming season

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including four-star wide receiver Jayden Thomas’ top 11, LSU coach Ed Orgeron’s ceremonial first pitch at the Tigers’ baseball opener, Tennessee quarterback Jarrett Guarantano’s comments about having “unfinished business” this season and Auburn coach Gus Malzahn reportedly getting close to naming a new recruiting coordinator.

35-minute mark: I congratulate the Diamond Dawgs for a sweep to start the season vs. Richmond.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
