Dawgs Set to Tangle with Tide: A National Championship Preview

Dawgs Set to Tangle with Tide: A National Championship Preview

IT'S NATIONAL CHAMPIOSNHIP WEEK!! And in honor of such a momentous week, it's a MONSTER preview show. H.G. and Boss are joined a number of outstanding guests to get Dawgs fans prepped and ready for the tussle with the Tide on Monday night in the Circle City. DGD Aaron Davis leads off the show, followed by DGDs Aaron Murray and Ty Frix from The Players' Lounge, and ESPN College GameDay's closes everything out. It's the preview episode to end all preview episodes. H.G. and Boss bark with Aaron, Ty, Aaron, and Bear about:

Aaron Davis (10:02 - 45:34)

  • If he was surprised at the outcome in the SEC Championship Game against Alabama
  • Whether the loss was driven more by what Georgia didn't do, or if they were just overcome by a singular performance by Alabama quarterback Bryce Young
  • His experience from the 2017 run, and what the week between the win in the Rose Bowl and the Dawgs appearance in the CFP title game looked like
  • What the loss of John Metchie does to Alabama's offense and how it alters Georgia's defensive gameplan
  • Aaron's thoughts on the pending matchup in Indianapolis, an Alabama weakness Georgia should look to exploit, and his pick ATS for Monday night's game

The Players' Lounge: Aaron Murray and Ty Frix (49:13 - 66:14)

  • the origin story of The Players' Lounge and how buying a DGD NFT creates positive NIL opportunities for current players 
  • The perks and benefits of being a member of the DGD Mafia by purchasing a DGD NFT
  • How a DGD NFT is like a ticket to access a one-of-a-kind community centered around a love and passion for Georgia
  • Their gratitude for all of the opportunities and support that the University of Georgia, Georgia fans, and the Athens community gave to them, and their hope that The Players' Lounge will build a bridge between current and former players, and Dawgs supporters and fans
  • Ty and Aaron's thoughts on the national championship game and their picks for Monday's title bout

College GameDay's Chris Fallica (69:39 - 85:45)

  • If he could have envisioned the SEC Championship Game playing out like it did
  • The importance of Georgia playing complementary football and using the formula that brought so much success during the regular season and in the Orange Bowl
  • John Metchie's absence and the effect it will have on Alabama's offensive gameplan and ability to stretch the field
  • The matchup he's looking forward to most on Monday night
  • His pick to hoist the CFP trophy at Lucas Oil Stadium on Monday night

Go Dawgs, Sic 'Em!!
