Many in the college football world are seeking "the next Joe Burrow." Candidates include UGA's Jamie Newman.

Georgia football podcast: Assessing Jamie Newman’s chances of being ‘the next Joe Burrow’

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. 1,175 (April 15, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about whether new Georgia quarterback Jamie Newman has a chance to match the performance former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow put together last season.

Georgia football podcast: Assessing Jamie Newman’s chances of being ‘the next Joe Burrow’

Beginning of the show: Former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow put together an amazing career at LSU, and it was seemingly made more extraordinary by the fact he arrived with the Tigers after transferring from Ohio State due to the fact he wasn’t in line to be the Buckeyes’ starting signal caller. With transfers now even more fashionable than they were when Burrow made the move, there’s a natural tendency to wonder which of the new quarterbacks could have a similar impact with their new programs. Undoubtedly, Georgia’s Jamie Newman is one of the candidates to thrive. However, I’ll explain on today’s show why Newman’s chances of success — based on what happened with Burrow at LSU — are closely tied to the Bulldogs’ new offensive coordinator, Todd Monken.

10-minute mark: I follow up on a topic first introduced Monday regarding the arguments in favor of picking Florida over UGA in the SEC this season by sharing a point about the Gators that even I begrudgingly have to admit possibly holds some merit.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Connor Riley joins the show to discuss Newman, Monken and what Bulldogs fans would’ve been able to enjoy if G-Day took place as originally scheduled this Saturday.

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including why Auburn fans will probably be watching another high-profile transfer quarterback’s performance closely.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
