Georgia football podcast: Big reason UGA’s becoming even more impressive to recruits


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

On episode No. 655 (March 5, 2018) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about the big reason why UGA’s becoming even more impressive to recruits.

Georgia football podcast: Big reason UGA’s becoming even more impressive to recruits

Beginning of the show: Former Georgia linebacker Lorenzo Carter turned in an impressive time in the 40-yard dash at the NFL combine. Carter’s showing — along with those of his former teammates — have gotten the attention of a few future Bulldogs players, who apparently now view UGA as a great starting point to eventually land a professional career. I’ll explain more about why that is on today’s show.

10-minute mark: ESPN’s Heather Dinich called UGA’s non-conference schedule “atrocious” during an appearance  Friday  on the Paul Finebaum Show. I’ll explain why it’s unfair to criticize UGA’s schedule even if most of the non-conference games leave something to be desired.  

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Chip Towers joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Lorenzo Carter with an impressive showing at the NFL Combine
  • Former UGA players address National Championship Game
  • Will UGA’s schedule hurt their playoff chances?
  • What to expect from Natrez Patrick?
  • Should Deangelo Gibbs stay at DB?
  • Did loss at Tennessee seal Mark Fox’s fate?

30-minute mark: I look at some other SEC headlines, including Nick Saban addressing the QB competition, Calvin Ridley saying there was tension among Alabama’s wide receivers, Tennessee paying departed Athletic Director John Currie $75k a month, and Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway blaming himself for McElwain’s firing.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and remind DawgNation Daily listeners and viewers about the brand new  DawgNation Daily Double posted at the  DawgNation Forum.
