Georgia football is the No. 1 topic every day on DawgNation Daily — the daily podcast for Georgia Bulldogs fans.

On episode No. 1,085 (Dec. 3, 2019) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about why playing up the underdog role would be a bad thing for the Bulldogs in the SEC championship game.

Georgia football podcast: UGA should downplay underdog role in SEC championship

Beginning of the show: Georgia is the underdog in Saturday’s SEC championship. Las Vegas has installed LSU as approximately a touchdown favorite. However, the Bulldogs might be smart not to play up the underdog role too much given that favorites have dominated conference championship games in recent years. I’ll talk more about that subject on today’s show, and I’ll address what seems to be an altered evaluation of UGA running back D’Andre Swift’s shoulder injury.

10-minute mark: I’ll discuss why the prevailing narrative around LSU’s defense is similar to what’s been said about UGA’s offense.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Why 4-star defensive lineman Zykeivous Walker chose Auburn over UGA
  • What to expect when 5-star running back Zachary Evans announces his commitment Wednesday
  • 5-star cornerback Kelee Ringo apparently enjoying UGA’s win vs. Georgia Tech
  • An an update on safety Eric Reed — who recently de-committed from Ole Miss

30-minute mark: I preview Tuesday night’s release of the College Football Playoff top 25, and explain why Florida coach Dan Mullen is hoping to climb the rankings.

35-minute mark: Former UGA wide receiver Sean Bailey was scheduled to join the show, but was unable to appear due to a conflict. I hope to have him on Wednesday’s show.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Udpater.
