Georgia football podcast: Don’t blame UGA for Georgia Tech game cancellation

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. 1,249 (July 31, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about what happened that led the SEC to adopt a 10-game conference-only schedule for this season, and how those deliberations resulted in the cancellation of UGA’s longstanding rivalry with Georgia Tech in 2020.

Georgia football podcast: Don’t blame UGA for Georgia Tech game cancellation

Beginning of the show: Georgia won’t play Georgia Tech in 2020 for the first time since 1924. A lot of UGA fans are disappointed by the news, and some voices outside the bubble of DawgNation are blaming the Bulldogs and the SEC for the cancellation. I’ll explain on today’s show why that opinion is too simplistic.

12-minute mark: I discuss the mystery surrounding who UGA’s two new SEC opponents will be.

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

  • The latest on five-star offensive tackle Amarius Mims
  • UGA’s creative approach towards its linbacker recruitment — including five-star prospect Smael Mondon
  • An explanation of how five-star athlete James Williams came to choose Miami over the Bulldogs
  • And a discussion about whether UGA fans should be concerned about the current state of the 2020 class

40-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including reports that South Carolina was the only school to vote against the 10-game conference-only schedule, and I share more thoughts on how the league’s scheduling announcement could impact the fall.

End of show: I discuss UGA-Florida remaining in Jacksonville and share the Gator Hater Updater.
