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. 441 (May 8, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia Bulldogs fans can hear:

Beginning of the show: I talk about Georgia coach Kirby Smart’s decision to offer 18 quarterbacks for the 2018 recruiting class. I also share audio from DawgNation recruiting insider Jeff Sentell about what the best plan going forward at that position would be for UGA.

12-minute mark: DawgNation’s Seth Emerson joins the show. Some of the topics we cover include…

  • The inspiring story of former UGA DB Tra Battle
  • The NFL future for QB Jacob Eason
  • The role that freshman DB Deangelo Gibbs will fill this fall
  • The likelihood that sophomore Mecole Hardman will be considered an offensive player moving forward
  • An evaluation of UGA’s secondary
  • And whether an opportunity at NFL riches will motivate UGA LB Lorenzo Carter this season

30-minute mark: I take a look at some of the other headlines from around the SEC including criminal charges against Tennessee wide receiver Josh Smith, South Carolina’s Deebo Samuel and Skai Moore being cleared in a police investigation, the fact that Lane Kiffin was apparently close to becoming LSU offensive coordinator, LSU defensive end Arden Key’s expected return to the Tigers, and a report that suggests former Notre Dame quarterback Malik Zaire might not choose Florida when he announces his transfer decision.

End of show: I examine why 4-star LB Quay Walker eliminated UGA from his top 5.
