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 cast of DawgNation experts as they discuss UGA coach Kirby Smart’s quest to return the Bulldogs to the top of the SEC, and break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news. On episode No. 519 (Aug. 24, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear a discussion about what former Georgia quarterback D.J. Shockley said about UGA running back Sony Michel.

Georgia football podcast: Former UGA great raves about Sony Michel

Beginning of the show: As part of a video series with DawgNation’s Chip Towers, set to publish soon, former Georgia quarterback D.J. Shockley explained why UGA running back Sony Michel is his favorite player. I’ll share that clip on the show Thursday and discuss why Michel plays a crucial role on and off the field for the Bulldogs this season.

10-minute mark: I congratulate the Georgia players included on the Coaches’ Preseason All-SEC team.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Seth Emerson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • An update on UGA running back Nick Chubb’s health, and a perspective on his outlook for the upcoming season
  • Whether redshirt freshman offensive tackle Ben Cleveland is truly pushing freshman Andrew Thomas for the starting spot at right tackle
  • A comparison between UGA freshmen defensive backs Deangelo Gibbs and Richard LeCounte
  • The latest on freshman wide receiver J.J. Holloman
  • And the chances Rodrigo Blankenship once again emerges as UGA’s kicker.

30-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including the chances Florida plays three quarterbacks vs. Michigan; the possibility Tennessee gets injured wide receiver Josh Smith back in time to play the Gators; an Auburn coach telling CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd that this year’s team reminds him of the Tigers’ 2013 SEC championship team; and a look at the SEC players named to the AP preseason All-America team.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
