Podcast: Expert opinion varies about UGA’s spot in preseason Top 25
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 break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news. On episode No. 438 (May 3, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear:
Beginning of the show: I share some “way too early” top 25 rankings from the Sporting News, Fox Sports, ESPN, and CBS Sports and explain why there is such wide disagreement regarding how good Georgia will be this season. I’ll also play audio from former Alabama All-American Mike Johnson from Tuesday’s episode of SEC Country Live in which Mike makes a case for why the Bulldogs will be a top 10 team.
12 minute mark: I talk to The Sporting News’ Bill Bender. Some of the topics we cover include…
- Why Bill sees the Bulldogs as a top 10 team
- What he would say to UGA fans critical of offensive coordinator Jim Chaney
- How Georgia stacks up with the rest of the SEC East
- Whether the two SEC divisions will be more balanced this season
- And Bill previews UGA’s two biggest road games — Auburn and Notre Dame.
25 minute mark: I take a look at some of the other headlines from around the SEC including Alabama coach Nick Saban’s contract extension, Arkansas running back Rawleigh Williams II’s neck injury, an update on LSU quarteraback Danny Etling’s back injury, the assault investigation involving South Carolina players, and a Tennessee quarterback’s decision to transfer from the Vols.
End of show: I preview some special content found only on the video version of today’s show.
