Georgia football podcast: UGA should consider no longer playing Georgia Tech


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 keep the Bulldogs on top of the SEC. On episode No. 656 (March 6, 2018) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about whether Georgia should consider no longer playing Georgia Tech.

Georgia football podcast: UGA should consider no longer playing Georgia Tech

Beginning of the show: Georgia’s non-conference schedule is “atrocious” according to ESPN College Football Playoff reporter Heather Dinich. If that’s true, does that mean UGA should consider no longer playing Georgia Tech? I’ll discuss on today’s show whether replacing the Yellow Jackets with another regional rival like Clemson or Florida State would be a better scheduling solution for the Bulldogs.

10-minute mark: 5-star LB Owen Pappoe had some nice things to say about Auburn, but recruiting experts are suggesting those comments aren’t necessarily proof that Pappoe — a priority target for UGA — is trending away from the Bulldogs. I’ll share what’s being said about Pappoe.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s recruiting insider Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Thoughts on 5-star linebacker Owen Pappoe listing Auburn as his number 2 school
  • UGA targets keeping recruitment open
  • Latest on Derick Hunter, has he publicly committed to UGA?
  • Is UGA using the NFL Combine to help recruiting?
  • Previewing the final chapter of the Jamaree Salyer documentary

35-minute mark: I look at some other SEC headlines, including Dan Mullen talking about getting the Gators offense back in gear, Jeremy Pruitt looking to add more graduate transfers, a national writer saying that Ed Orgeron is on the hot seat, and Alabama getting more active on social media.

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.
