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. 1,007 (Aug. 14, 2019) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about how UGA is silencing potential opportunities for its rivals to negatively recruit against the Bulldogs.

Georgia football podcast: One way in which UGA is silencing negative recruiting

Beginning of the show: Negative recruiting is a fact of life at the top level of college football — the SEC included. However, some of the strides Georgia has taken in recent years with Kirby Smart as coach have seemingly made it more difficult for rival programs to criticize UGA. I’ll discuss an example of that on today’s show.

10-minute mark: I’ll address D’Andre Swift’s reported absence from the media viewing period at UGA practice Tuesday.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Mike Griffith joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • The latest on Swift
  • An update on UGA running back Zamir White
  • Reaction to the Bulldogs’ “lethargic” effort in last Saturday’s scrimmage
  • And a discussion about UGA quarterback Jake Fromm after a couple national publications released preseason profiles of him this week

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including a cryptic tweet from former UGA linebacker Brenton Cox seemingly related to his decision to transfer to Florida, Alabama reportedly agreeing to be part of a Hard Knocks-style show on HBO and evolving opinions regarding LSU quarterback Joe Burrow.

35-minute mark: I share why UGA winning a national championship in 2019 is arguably made more special due to the fact Fromm — and other Bulldogs players — grew up rooting for the team.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
