Podcast: CBS makes interesting comparison between Jacob Eason and former UGA QB
Georgia football is the No. 1 topic today and 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 breakdown the latest Georgia football recruiting news. On episode No. 419 (April 6, 2017) of the podcast Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear:
Beginning of the show: CBS sports’ Ben Kercheval wrote an interesting article ranking returning starters at quarterback around the country into different tiers. There is some debate to be had about where Jacob Eason falls on this list, and also an interesting comparison emerges between the career Eason is projected to have at UGA and the one Aaron Murray had with the Bulldogs from 2010-13.
10 minute mark: Georgia coach Kirby Smart talked about redshirt freshman offensive lineman Ben Cleveland this week complimenting his recent work at offensive tackle. However, I’m not so sure Smart’s assessment of Cleveland is good news for fans who are hoping to see the former 5-star recruit on the field this season.
15 minute mark: DawgNation’s Seth Emerson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…
- How Eason is handling the extra scrutiny he’s receiving this spring
- The impact former Minnesota offensive coordinator Jay Johnson is making as an analyst with UGA
- The apparent advantage Georgia’s offensive line has had over the defense during spring practice
- The latest on junior college transfer offensive lineman D’Marcus Hayes
- And more details on the role sophomore wide receiver/defensive back Mecole Hardman is filling during practice
30 minute mark: I take a look at some of the headlines around the rest of the SEC including Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts spending time with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, the crticism Florida is receiving from an in-state rival regarding a cancelled baseball game, and a look at why Chip Kelly is hanging around Texas A&M.
End of show: ESPN published a recent statistic indicating one area in which the UGA defense excelled last year. I’ll explain what that number could mean for the upcoming season.
