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 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. 448 (May 17, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear a discussion about why UGA’s sack total will be a key statistic in determining the winner of the SEC East.

Georgia football podcast: One stat could determine SEC East winner

Beginning of the show: In three of the last four seasons the winner of the SEC East has collected more than 40 sacks as a team. Can Georgia accomplish that feat this season? It might need to if it wants to represent the division in the SEC Championship game, and it could have the players in place to do just that.

10 minute mark: SEC Country’s Josh Ward joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • UGA’s national championship odds
  • Expectations for sophomore quarterback Jacob Eason
  • Outlook for the SEC East
  • Whether Tennessee fans are enjoying an offseason with less hype than the year before

20 minute mark: I take a look at some other headlines from around the SEC including a suggestion from one writer that tough schedules could doom Auburn’s Gus Malzahn, Tennessee’s Butch Jones, and Texas A&M’s Kevin Sumlin. Plus I talk about an ESPN analyst who’s adding his name to the growing list of those expecting big things from Malzahn’s Tigers this year, and a look at why UGA running back Nick Chubb isn’t getting more Heisman attention.

End of show: I talk about the investigation involving UGA’s tennis program.
