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. 1,262 (Aug. 19, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about why UGA is one of the rare teams that has actually played 10 SEC opponents in a single season before.

Georgia football podcast: UGA has already done what rest of SEC will attempt in 2020

Beginning of the show: SEC fans are gearing up for an unusual season as the conference’s members prepare to play 10-game schedules solely against other league foes. However, I’ll explain on today’s show why this won’t be a new concept for Georgia — which played 10 SEC opponents in 2017. I’ll also discuss why the Bulldogs’ 2017 performance indicates a major challenge awaits most of the rest of the SEC this season.

10-minute mark: I offer instant reaction to UGA’s plan for social distancing in Sanford Stadium after the news broke during the show.

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

  • UGA’s fan policy for games this fall
  • The hype surrounding the UGA defense
  • The challenge of playing a 10-game conference-only schedule
  • And an evaluation of the ongoing quarterback competition

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including a look at some Week 1 SEC point spreads, an update on Kentucky quarterback Joey Gatewood’s transfer waiver request, another recruiting win for Alabama, praise for new Crimson Tide quarterback Bryce Young and a look at some point spreads for UGA’s games with Auburn, Alabama and Florida.

40-minute mark: I share audio of UGA linebacker Nakobe Dean downplaying expectations for the Bulldogs’ defense.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
