Podcast: Former UGA great says time for status as ‘underachieving program’ to change

Brandon Adams

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. 429 (April 20, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear:

Beginning of the show: Former UGA tight end Randy McMichael addresses possible pressure facing Georgia coach Kirby Smart this season, and explains why he thinks the Bulldogs need to shed a label that he believes has been attached to UGA too frequently.

10 minute mark: 4-star defensive end Brenton Cox has postponed his college announcement originally scheduled for Sunday. I’ll talk about why he might be waiting, and I’ll explain why Jeff Sentell thinks it would be a “gut punch” for UGA if Cox chooses Ohio State over the Bulldogs.

15 minute mark: DawgNation’s Seth Emerson joins the show to preview Saturday’s G-Day game. Some of the topics we cover include…

  • The ongoing quarterback competition between Jacob Eason and Jake Fromm
  • The possible improvement from UGA’s offensive line
  • The emergence of Georgia running back Nick Chubb as a pass catching option
  • And the latest news on running back Elijah Holyfield

30 minute mark: I take a look at some of the other headlines from around the SEC including an interesting column from CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd on a possible rule change that could negatively impact Alabama coach Nick Saban, and I share some recruiting news about a dual-threat quarterback with a UGA offer that committed to an SEC foe.

35 minute mark: SEC Network analyst Matt Stinchcomb joins the show to preview this Saturday’s G-Day telecast.

End of show: Matt challenges UGA fans in attendance on Saturday to contribute to a fund for Devon Gales.
