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 cast of DawgNation experts as they discuss UGA coach Kirby Smart’s quest to return the Bulldogs to the top of the SEC, and break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news. On episode No. 450 (May 19, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear a discussion about UGA’s season win total set by a sports book in Las Vegas.

Georgia football podcast: Las Vegas underrates UGA

Beginning of the show: The bookmakers at CG Technology have set Georgia’s season win total at eight. I’ll explain why that number doesn’t give enough credit to the Bulldogs. I’ll also share audio from former Alabama All-American Mike Johnson explaining why UGA’s schedule sets up well to exceed expectations this season.

10-minute mark: Former UGA LB Rennie Curran joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • The promise Rennie made to his mother to return to college and earn his degree
  • The step he took before his coursework was done that demonstrated his belief in himself
  • Rennie’s life after football — including public speaking engagements and authoring a book
  • The thought process for UGA seniors Nick Chubb, Sony Michel, Lorenzo Carter and Davin Bellamy, who passed on a chance to enter the 2017 NFL Draft in order to return to Georgia.

18-minute mark: I take a look at some of the other over/under totals for other SEC teams including Alabama, LSU, Auburn, Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina and Mississippi State.

End of show: I preview the upcoming week on DawgNation Daily.
