Georgia football podcast: Despite postponements, the college football season can still be saved

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. 1,256 (Aug. 11, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about why the folks fighting to save the college football season could still win the battle even after the Big Ten and PAC-12 chose to postpone their seasons.

Georgia football podcast: Despite postponements, the college football season can still be saved

Beginning of the show: The college football season seemed doomed to be canceled Sunday night, and the Big Ten and PAC-12 have followed through and validated some of the initial reports by choosing to postpone their seasons with the hopes of playing this spring. However, I’ll explain on today’s show why the college football season — at least for Georgia and the rest of the SEC — could still be saved.

NOTE: This show was recorded Tuesday morning prior to the official announcements from the Big Ten and PAC-12.

10-minute mark: I take a look at a potentially serious heart condition that’s possibly at the center of the discussion for why the Big Ten and PAC-12 won’t be playing at this fall.

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

  • Whether the season can still be saved
  • The opinion of experts within the SEC
  • And reaction to four-star tight end Brock Bowers’ UGA commitment

35-minute mark: I take a look at the latest headlines around the fight to save the college football season, and I mention another recruiting win for Florida.

40-minute mark: I discuss the symbolic value of Bowers’ commitment.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
