Georgia football podcast: ESPN’s Marcus Spears explains how UGA could blow out Oklahoma


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 break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news and discuss UGA coach Kirby Smart’s quest to return the Bulldogs to the top of the SEC. On episode No. 593 (Dec. 6, 2017) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about why ESPN analyst Marcus Spears thinks Georgia could blow out Oklahoma.

Beginning of the show: ESPN analyst Marcus Spears thinks that Georgia could coast to an easy win vs. Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl if UGA’s running backs can become a big part of the story. I’ll share audio on today’s show of what Spears said that explains his reasoning for being high on the Bulldogs.

10-minute mark: I talk a about the latest rumors involving UGA defensive coordinator Mel Tucker’s candidacy for the Tennessee job, and UGA wide receivers coach James Coley being in the mix for the offensive coordinator position at Texas A&M.

15-minute mark: SEC Country’s Mike Johnson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Mike’s trip to the Rose Bowl in 2009
  • The chances UGA can limit possessions for the Oklahoma offense and limit the impact of Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield
  • And Mike’s thoughts on coaching rumors involving UGA assistants

30-minute mark: I discuss some other SEC headlines including why Arkansas hiring Chad Morris is probably bad news for Tennessee, and where the Vols go now after losing out on another candidate.

35-minute mark: I discuss why national media attention came too late for UGA linebacker Roquan Smith who — despite an outstanding season — missed out on a invite to New York City as a Heisman finalist.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and congratulate the UGA basketball team for its win vs. Winthrop.
