UGA has won the SEC East three-straight years, but is picked second by the media ahead of the season's start.

Georgia football podcast: Let’s laugh at the media for picking Florida to win the SEC East

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. 1,287 (Sept. 24, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about why it should be humorous to UGA fans that the media has officially tabbed Florida to win the SEC East.

Beginning of the show: One of the key dates on the typical SEC calendar was skipped this year. There was no SEC Media Days in July due to the coronavirus, but one of the most anticipated aspects of the event has continued again in 2020 despite the absence of an in-person gathering.

The media has voted on the order of finish for the conference, and Georgia fans are left to hope reporters are as wrong on this prediction as they’ve been on most of their prognostications in the past. I’ll discuss more on that topic on today’s show, including why it’s okay if UGA fans want to laugh at the suggestion the Gators are ready to surpass the Bulldogs.

Eight-minute mark: I discuss more comments from former UGA great David Pollack regarding his belief that D’Wan Mathis should be the Bulldogs’ starting quarterback.

10-minute mark: I discuss sophomore linebacker Nakobe Dean’s role in UGA’s defense.

15-minute mark: Former UGA wide receiver Terrence Edwards joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Terrence’s thoughts on the Bulldogs defense
  • The outlook for Mathis and UGA’s quarterbacks
  • The transfer drama involving Otis Reese and Cade Mays
  • And a preview of UGA-Arkansas

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including a former Tennessee quarterback forced to retreat on a wild accusation made against UGA.

35-minute mark: I discuss how the offensive line depth, once cultivated by former position coach Sam Pittman, will be put to the test against Pittman in his head coaching debut for the Razorbacks.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
