Georgia football is the No. 1 topic every day on DawgNation Daily — the daily podcast for Georgia Bulldogs fans.

On episode No. 1,215 (June 12, 2020) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about why the ongoing debate regarding whether Kirby Smart or Dan Mullen is the better coach will soon have a decisive answer. 

Georgia football podcast: The Kirby Smart-Dan Mullen debate will have decisive winner soon

Beginning of the show: Various writers and sports talkers have weighed in during the offseason regarding who will win the SEC East this upcoming season, and invariably the conversation quickly spins into a debate about how Florida coach Dan Mullen compares with UGA’s Kirby Smart.

The general thought among many is that while Smart is certainly the better recruiter between the two and thus far UGA has been a better program under his watch than Florida, Mullen and the Gators will eventually overtake the Bulldogs because of Mullen’s coaching ability — specifically his skill at developing lesser recruits.

I’ll explain on today’s show why that talking point could soon be rendered obsolete.

10-minute mark: I discuss four-star wide receiver Romello Brinson committing to Miami, and address what could be next for the Bulldogs 2021 class at wide receiver.

15-minute mark: DawgNation analyst — and former UGA All-American — Jon Stinchcomb joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Jon’s thoughts on UGA-Florida
  • A preview of the Bulldogs’ trip to Alabama in September
  • Some recent comments from an ESPN writer on UGA’s so-called “embarrassing” national title drought
  • And a discussion on how the newly adopted name, image and likeness law in Florida could allow players to soon profit from endorsement opportunities and what that could mean in the future for UGA

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including a top Tennessee commit’s high-profile split with his high school.

35-minute mark: I discuss a funny tweet from a DawgNation Daily listener and viewer regarding a viral moment last year for UGA wide receiver signee Jermaine Burton.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
