UGA fans should brace for the possibility that some of the Bulldogs' rivalry games could be played on unusual dates this season.

Georgia football podcast: Buckle up for UGA schedule that could be different than expected

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. 1,252 (Aug. 5, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about why the Big 10’s announcement about how its conference-only schedule will look in 2020 potentially foreshadows what the SEC could do as well.

Georgia football podcast: Buckle up for UGA schedule that could be different than expected

Beginning of the show: The Big 10 announced just before our show began today the details of its conference-only schedule for this season. The most notable declaration was that Ohio State and Michigan — the rivalry typically played on the final Saturday of the regular season — will be Oct. 24 this year. I’ll explain on today’s show why the Big 10’s announcement could possibly be a preview of what the SEC will eventually do — including moving some traditional games to unusual spots on calendar.

10-minute mark: I share some funny audio from former UGA offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson — who made an appearance on a Barstool Sports show and shared some humorous tales involving his recruitment.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Mike Griffith joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • The upcoming exclusive DawgNation event, Inside The Huddle, which takes place Aug. 11
  • Whether some of UGA’s most important games could be played on different dates that we assumed they would be
  • And a recap of the SEC’s announcement about when preseason practices will officially begin

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including a Florida commit who says he’s reclassifying as a 2020 recruit, a four-star cornerback who is set to skip his senior season due to the coronavirus and Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons’ announcement to opt out of the upcoming season and prepare for the NFL draft.

35-minute mark: I revisit some remarks from Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley from earlier in the spring that were critical of the SEC in light of some recent announcements about how the league’s return to football differs from Riley’s home conference, The Big 12.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
