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. 1,192 (May 11, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about how the aftermath of five-star running back Zach Evans’ decision to choose TCU shines a negative light on Florida and Tennessee.

Georgia football podcast: Zach Evans’ TCU commitment is a PR disaster for UGA rivals

Beginning of the show: At one one it seemed five-star running back Zach Evans was destined to play for Georgia. In fact, it was reported that he signed with UGA only to be released from his letter of intent allegedly for discipline reasons. After the Bulldogs moved on, a number of UGA rivals — including Tennessee and Florida — got involved in Evans recruitment. I’ll explain on today’s show why the Vols and Gators getting rejected by a player that UGA reportedly passed on taking amounts to a public relations fail for Tennessee and Florida.

10-minute mark: I take a look at SEC Network analyst Cole Cubelic’s skepticism of the UGA offense and new quarterback Jamie Newman.

15-minute mark: Former UGA All-American — and DawgNation analyst — Jon Stinchcomb joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Jon’s thoughts on Newman and the UGA offense
  • The growing number of Bulldogs players who’ve taken to social media to help recruit for UGA
  • And Jon’s reaction to Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh’s suggestion for allowing players to leave for the NFL before their junior seasons

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including another busy recruiting weekend for Tennessee, a former Florida player’s Twitter diatribe against his school, a listener take on a quarterback on the move and former Alabama quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa’s reported decision to enter the transfer portal.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
