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.

Georgia football podcast: Greg McElroy gives huge compliment to UGA RB D’Andre Swift Beginning of the show: I discuss comments from McElroy about Swift possibly making enough noise this season to stage a legitimate Heisman Trophy campaign.  UGA owns a deep backfield, but it’s interesting to hear what some Georgia staffers apparently thought about Swift a year ago. I share audio from Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart about his opinion on Swift and how the player impressed Smart in 2017. 12-minute mark: I discuss how wide receiver Terry Godwin might be overlooked despite his breakout moments last season. I also share the Kroger Click List Checklist. 15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell joins the show. Some of the topics covered include: Sentell’s thoughts on Deangelo Gibbs Sentell’s thoughts on Jordan Davis Sentell’s thoughts on DJ Daniel Sentell’s observations about the relationship between Nathan Pickering and Nolan Smith Georgia’s west end zone reveal 35-minute mark: I look at other headlines from around the SEC, including Lane Kiffin giving his opinion on Alabama’s quarterback situation, how Florida’s de-commit list outranks its commit list, whispers in Knoxville about early tension between Vols coach Jeremy Pruitt and Tennessee athletic director Phillip Fulmer, plus Auburn quarterback Jarrett Stidham speaking about former interest in Texas A&M. 40-minute mark: I unveil the latest Dawg Day Q&A, which asks which Georgia game is the most fun to rewatch.

Sagan takes 3rd win at Tour, Thomas keeps lead on Stage 13

Sagan takes 3rd win at Tour, Thomas keeps lead on Stage 13

Peter Sagan won his third stage of this Tour de France, while Geraint Thomas kept the overall lead over teammate Chris Froome on Friday. World champion Sagan won a sprint finish by a wheel length to claim Stage 13, a 169.5-kilometer (105-mile) leg from Bourg d'Oisans to Valence in less than four hours. After overzealous fans marred Thomas' win on Thursday atop the Alpe d'Huez, the otherwise complete calm of Friday's leg was briefly disturbed by a man on the roadside who tossed a smoke bomb into the center of the peloton as it passed by with 16 kilometers left. Besides spitting out yellow smoke, the bomb appeared to do no harm. Thomas took charge of the race with impressive wins atop summit finishes on the previous two days. The Welsh rider for Sky had no trouble maintaining his advantage of 1 minute, 39 second over defending champion Froome on the flat ride that came after three grueling days in the Alps. Both Team Sky riders finished safely in the pack with their top rivals. Tom Dumoulin stayed third overall at 1:50 behind. Primoz Roglic was fourth at 2:46, and Romain Bardet was fifth at 3:07 back. Sagan timed his move perfectly, charging forward to overtake runner-up Alexander Kristoff and Arnaud Demare, who finished third, at the finish line. The Slovakian's 12th career Tour victory came after he dominated sprints at the end of Stages 2 and 5. This time, Sagan was racing against a field of top sprinters who had been greatly depleted by the mountains. Fernando Gaviria and Dylan Groenewegen, who both won two stages on this Tour, along with Andre Greipel all abandoned the race on Thursday, while 30-stage winner Mark Cavendish and Marcel Kittel failed to make the time cut on Wednesday. On Thursday's action-packed ascent up Alpe d'Huez, contender Vincenzo Nibali was forced to abandon the race after he broke a vertebra when knocked to the ground by a police motorbike tasked with keeping back the pressing fans. Froome also was pushed hard in the back by a spectator, and Thomas was booed on the podium by fans who are skeptical of Froome's clearance from doping allegation just before the Tour's start. Michael Schaer of BMC was the last rider of a four-man breakaway to be reeled in with 6K left. Saturday's Stage 14 is a hilly 188-kilometer trek from Saint-Paul-Trois-Chateaux to Mende as the race makes its way to the Pyrenees Mountains. ___ Associated Press writers Andrew Dampf and Ciaran Fahey contributed ___ More Tour de France coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/TourdeFrance

Georgia football picked in East, but Alabama heavy favorite for SEC title

Georgia football picked in East, but Alabama heavy favorite for SEC title

ATLANTA — Georgia football is back to being the hunter, after all. The Bulldogs were a distant second to Alabama in the preseason SEC Championship voting from the media contingent attending the league’s media days at the College Football Hall of Fame this week. RELATED: Georgia fails to land first-team All-SEC preseason pick The Crimson Tide garnered two-thirds of the first-place votes available — 193 of the 284 (.679), while Georgia received less than one-fourth (69. .242) despite its status as defending league champion. Bulldogs defensive end Jonathan Ledbetter said the Bulldogs don’t concern themselves with perception. “You always have your doubters and naysayers, but you have to keep the main thing the main thing,” Ledbetter said at SEC Media Days. “There’s a lot of outside noise in college football, but you just worry about your team and how you can get better rather than what everyone is saying, because they’re not in there doing it with you.” The Bulldogs were a heavy favorite to win the SEC Eastern Division, however, receiving 271 of 285 first-place votes.
