Georgia football fans are celebrating UGA’s third-consecutive trip to the SEC championship game, and DawgNation is providing unparalleled coverage each day on video in a series called Road to Atlanta — presented by Kroger. Each day host Brandon Adams will cover all the latest news and key storylines as the Bulldogs prepare for LSU. The latest edition of Road to Atlanta addresses what UGA fans had to say about UGA coach Kirby Smart’s update Monday on running back D’Andre Swift’s injured shoulder.
Watch: UGA fans react to Kirby Smart’s update on D’Andre Swift
Georgia coach Kirby Smart seemingly downgraded the status of running back D’Andre Swift’s injured shoulder Monday when Smart said he’s “hopeful” Swift will play in Saturday’s SEC championship game after repeatedly saying over the weekend he believed Swift will be “fine.”
Is this because Swift is more hurt that Smart initially let on? Is this an example of gamesmanship from Smart knowing LSU is as curious about Swift’s status as UGA fans are, or is this just a terse response to a question Smart was tired of answering?
Obviously, no one knows, but that didn’t stop Bulldogs fans from speculating and raising their own questions about key issues that could impact Saturday’s SEC championship Monday night on Road to Atlanta — DawgNation’s SEC championship game preview show (Video linked below).
In addition to the topic on Swift, UGA fans can also hear from…
- Smart on two aspects of LSU’s roster that don’t get as much attention as quarterback Joe Burrow, but that Smart believes could be major factors Saturday — The Tigers’ defense and running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire
- Linebacker Azeez Ojulari on playing in his first SEC championship game
- And wide receiver Tyler Simmons on his message to George Pickens — who’s suspended for the first half against LSU
Tune into Road to Atlanta — presented by Kroger and Georgia United Credit Union — each night this week at 6:00 pm to preview the SEC championship showdown between Georgia and LSU, and join DawgNation Thursday night at Marlow’s in Peachtree Corners for a special event and live broadcast featuring Brandon Adams, Jeff Sentell and former UGA All-American Jon Stinchcomb.
