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. 1,234 (July 10, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about why the Big Ten’s decision to cancel its non-conference games might not have the impact on UGA and the SEC that some assume that it will.

Georgia football podcast: UGA fans shouldn’t panic over Big 10 cancellations

Beginning of the show: The Big Ten announced Thursday its members won’t play non-conference games in the upcoming season — a move touted as a possible harbinger for other conferences to soon do the same. Suggestions have been made that the announcement is also potentially a precursor to the full cancelation of the season. I’ll explain on today’s show why such dire predictions are premature.

10-minute mark: I’ll explain why the SEC’s non-conference schedule for the 2020 season is different from the Big Ten’s and how that could influence the leagues’ seemingly differing stances on schedule changes.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Mike Griffith joins the show to discuss what UGA athletic director Greg McGarity said about the ongoing discussions about the upcoming season Thursday.

30-minute mark: I discuss the meeting of the SEC’s athletic directors — reportedly scheduled for Monday — and a report about the possibility of the conference adding games to a revamped schedule.

35-minute mark: DawgNation’s Connor Riley briefly joins the show to recap the latest news surrounding college football and the coronavirus.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater and wish DawgNation Daily listeners and viewers a happy weekend.
