Catch up on everything happening with UGA athletics with host Brandon Adams and the DawgNation experts as they break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news and discuss coach Kirby Smart's quest to return the Bulldogs to the top of the SEC. On episode No. 1,056 (Oct. 22, 2019) of the podcast, Georgia fans can hear a discussion about what's at stake when Georgia takes on Florida next Saturday. Georgia football podcast: UGA-Florida rivalry showdown has massive implications for Bulldogs Beginning of the show: Georgia's Playoff odds will greatly improve if it beats Florida next Saturday according to FiveThirtyEight.

  • ATHENS Kirby Smart says the Georgia football defense is 'not close' to playing as well as the numbers might indicates. The Bulldogs rank in the Top 10 in the nation in total defense, run defense, pass efficiency defense and scoring defense. Georgia is coming off its second shutout of the season, a 21-0 victory over Kentucky last Saturday. But just as Smart said his offense shouldn't be judged on its performance in the rainy, cold and windy weather, neither should the Bulldogs' defense. 'You can't judge (UGA defense) based on, number one, statistics,' Smart said following Georgia practice on Tuesday night. 'You can't judge it based on a kid playing in the pouring down rain that's not a quarterback (UK's Lynn Bowden), so, we haven't been tested in that regard. 'And we've got to get better, and that's what we're doing this week.' Smart said his defense was 'extremely sloppy in the last game.' Upon further review, Smart said his Georgia defense was 'atrocious.' 'When you watch that tape, there's a lot more concern,' Smart said. 'Tackling, gap fits, if you went to a coach and said watch this game,' they would come in and say, that is atrocious, tackling, fits, eye discipline, leverage, blockers.' 'But walking around, whistling by the graveyard that everything is fine and we're just OK, and we've got good defensive numbers, and that's not the case when you watch the true integrity of it.' To Smart's point, the meat of the Bulldogs schedule is still ahead of them starting with the neutral site game in Jacksonville, Fla., against the No. 7-ranked Florida Gators on Nov. 2. Here's a look at the total offense rankings of the teams Georgia has played, compared to the total offense rankings of the team's still ahead: Vanderbilt (30-6 win)..109th Murray St. (63-17 win)..FCS, 46th Arkansas St. (55-0 win)44th Notre Dame (23-17 win).. 30th Tennessee (43-17 win)108th S.

  • Want to attack every day with the latest UGA football recruiting info? That's what the Intel brings. The play sheet today calls for an introduction to a big UGA target that's been hiding in plain sight. That would be Oklahoma commit Mikey Henderson Jr. out of Texas. There's a line lifted from the 2012 film 'Django Unchained' which is now immortal. That's because there is now a GIF of said dialogue available on every smartphone. That Quentin Tarantino line goes: 'Gentlemen, you had my curiosity. But now you have my attention.' It serves as a fitting introduction for DawgNation regarding Georgia's chances to flip Oklahoma commitment Mikey Henderson Jr. in the 2020 class. The transplanted Texan was once a QB on the 247Sports Composite, but he now aligns on those rankings as the nation's No. 10 ATH and No. 263 overall prospect. The 6-foot-2.5, 238-pounder was in Athens last weekend on an official visit. He took his official to Norman late last month. Those are the only two schools he is considering. At all. He feels he can still chuck a pigskin about 60 or 70 yards. This is his first year playing in the slot and at wide receiver and tight end for Ranchview High. The senior missed most of 2018 (all but three games) with an injury. Henderson plays all over but has developed into a red-zone specialist. This explosive athlete can really elevate for jump balls.Recent clips on social media have also shown him to be a ready and willing blocker. He can erase his assignments from the play. I've been thinking about this clip of OU athlete commit Michael Henderson for the last 48 hours. (via @JLMcCuistion) pic.twitter.com/bzBom02FNB Eddie Radosevich (@Eddie_Rado) October 19, 2019 Check out his senior film first below. His junior tape is embedded after that. The thought of Henderson attached to the edge or flexed out intrigues in the Georgia offense. He can hammer away in multiple sets in the Bulldog rushing attack. And yet when it is time to go deep and race downfield, he has that, too. It, as we shall finally say, tugs at our curiosity. That attention-grabbing part: Mikey Henderson Jr. There's a 540-pound squat to Henderson to unpack here. Plus his mid-4.6 times in the 40. Maybe it is his 350-pound bench press. The eyebrows raise when he shares he broke his school's record in the power clean as a sophomore. They arch like a volcano peak after learning he can now explode off the ground with 370 pounds. (For those that don't know, that is a serious power clean. Nick Chubb stuff.) 'I'm coming for Saquon [Barkley] and his 405 [pound power clean] and I'm trying to get that my freshman year,' he said. @RanchviewPTR Jr QB & @OU_Football commit @nolimitmikey7 Power Cleans 365lbs! #PTR #CODE pic.twitter.com/sEt75x48uk Coach Whitaker (@coach_whitaker) February 28, 2019 While scanning around the Sanford Stadium crowd on Saturday, there were maybe 10-12 recruits left in the West End Zone bleachers by halftime. Henderson, Oklahoma commit and all, was one of those. His parents had opted to go inside, but he was proud to note his recruiting ambassador was there with him, too. 'She was there,' Henderson told DawgNation. 'She was a soldier, too. It was me and her. Everyone else was inside.' The dots begin to connect. Why would an out-of-state prospect sit amid conditions fit for a reenactment of that 'Forrest Gump' upside-down and the sideways-rain scene if he wasn't seriously interested? As it turns out, he clearly is. If this was a match race between the schools in a 40, Oklahoma still leads. Let's put them on the 35. He is still committed to the Sooners. But what about Georgia? 'Georgia is in there,' he said. 'It is a close race. Georgia is on the 34. It is close.' 5 interesting things from Mikey Henderson Jr. Henderson also said several more thingsthat grab the attention. Pretty much like Mikey Henderson did that 25-yard touchdown in overtime to beat Alabama in Tuscaloosa back in 2007. Georgia got into the picture with Henderson when tight ends coach Todd Hartley came to the staff. Hartley is recruiting him. The most simple way to say things is that Georgia views him as a tight end. Oklahoma is recruiting him to be an athletic H-Back in Lincoln Riley's points-a-palooza. 'Georgia and Hartley really started recruiting me heavily in the summer,' Henderson said. 'I'd say that was when Georgia began to have a serious shot. From talking to coach [Kirby] Smart and coach Hartley over the summer.' He plans to major in communications. Sports broadcasting could be his 40-year plan. He has the tools for it. When he speaks, he conveys his points clearly. ' I'm done,' he said on the subject of taking any more officials other than Oklahoma and Georgia. 'I've got three left but I'm not taking anymore, though. Those are really the only two schools. I'm committed to OU, well, but I'm still looking at Georgia like this is a school I am heavily talking to. It is between those two schools so there's really no point in taking them. I know that one of those two schools is where I want to be at.' ' That's something right there with my situation at Oklahoma,' answering a question on how much he likes to block. 'They want me to play H-back and I don't feel that's what I am. I don't feel like I can showcase my talent enough playing that position. I feel like they block a little too much for my liking at Oklahoma. I feel like on their route concepts and pass plays they do a lot of blocking. If they do run a route, it is like a late check-down route. That's not my game.' 'I just like how they are real,' when asked what he likes most about UGA. 'I talked to coach Smart and I don't feel like they are going to BS' you. I feel like whatever they have to say is real. Georgia, a top program like that, I don't feel like they have a reason to lie to recruits. Because they don't need anybody. They already are elite. They are just real with that and they are down-to-earth people.' 'I've already talked to OU about my concerns with the offense and they know how I feel about Georgia,' Henderson added. 'I was talking to them about it. So they want me to come up there again and sit in the film room and talk about it. So I probably have another visit up to Oklahoma. Do one more and then a decision will be made by the end of the month of November.' 'Just when I was sitting own in that film room with Coach Smart,' he said on the biggest reason why Georgia might flip him. 'He was telling me just how much of a priority I am to them. Just the situation in their tight end room next year. I know the situation. It would be a great opportunity to get on the field early. There's a lot of positions where you can't come to Georgia now and get on the field early. But I feel like the tight end is one of them. They told me that. They pulled the depth chart up and that was the stuff to back it up.' He would like to make his final decision known at the All-American Bowl in Texas. If he gets a late invite to that game, then he will share it there. That was his first trip to Georgia, too. It kind of shocked some members of his family they were in Athens at all. He said they kind of felt that he was all Oklahoma. What is this starting to sound like? Is Oklahoma is the stone-cold fox he's always wanted to be with? But maybe Georgia might just be the better choice for a long-lasting relationship? 'That's exactly like a perfect comparison,' he said. 'I would say that. That's spot-on right there.' It seems that UGA has Henderson's attention, too. OU and UGA: The position fits for Mikey Henderson Jr. His favorite route is the corner post. That is a tell to what position he thinks would be his best Saturday fit. 'I'm not necessarily like a tight end,' he said. 'I'm definitely not an H-back. I would say I'm more like a bigger slot receiver. Because if you look at my film, I can line up in the slot. I can line up outside. I'm just like a bigger receiver and I can run every route in the route tree. I know it well because I played quarterback. Then I've got my hands.' 'I would say I'm like a bigger receiver.' When that discussion continued, the January enrollee said the term 'Flex End' fits his toolbox. Henderson shared his view on what the Bulldogs have at tight end. 'They have a lot of tight ends in that room that would be the traditional tight end,' he said. 'They block and they are good. But they don't have that yards-after-catches thing to them. That's what I feel like. That's what I feel like Georgia is looking for. If you watch my film, that's what I bring. I feel like Georgia is a good opportunity for me to showcase what I do in that offense.' Check that film. Henderson is making plays on balls in the air. Jump balls especially. 'I love going up in the air to get that ball,' Henderson said. 'I feel like when that ball is in the air, I expect to come down with it every time. I like going deep and coming down with it to catch those jump balls. I just like catching the ball, getting it in space, taking that deep shot with my quarterback and going up over somebody.' Can he block? That 370-pound power clean shows he can lift Jordan Davis-sized men off the ground. 'I don't mind blocking at all,' he said. 'That's something that I take pride in. That is all part of being a complete player.' Mikey Henderson Jr. compares Georgia and Oklahoma He likes the winning tradition at both schools. 'I just like the people at Oklahoma,' he said. 'That was my first offer. So like obviously that's the school that I have the best relationship with the coaches. I've done been down there ten times so I know it. In my heart, I would say that it is OU. They show gratitude and love towards my family. But it is not just about the relationship with the people.' Henderson knows Smart can get testy. There are plenty of viral 'GIFs' about that, too. But he views it as a positive. 'I just like how he doesn't sugarcoat anything,' he said. 'He is going to tell you that once you get there when you do something wrong and something goes wrong he is going to get on you. He is going to coach you hard. You can tell it. You can tell it in the locker room after the games. I bet at halftime, too. He's going to coach his players hard. That's what you want. He isn't going to lie about it. He is going to tell you that when you are sitting in his office with your parents and your family.' 'He is going to tell you if something goes wrong, he is going to get into you. But it is only to make you better. If you can say something to a recruit like that and let them know that you are going to rip into them when they mess up, that's something that I liked about him.' Do some film scouring of your own. Check those reels. There's an Easter Egg that has nothing to do with blocking or route running or catching. He was given the ball on a jet sweep. There were 7-8 defenders with a chance to bring him down. He took that one to the crib. 'When folks see a guy do something like that, then they can tell he a man is a big-time ballplayer' he said. 'I should have been tackled like 10 times on that play. That's when you see a guy is really a ballplayer. You can't coach stuff like that.' Here's a lasting image of Henderson's official: He's out. Real late. His player host, D'Wan Mathis, is leading him around the most expensive nightclub in Athens. That was the William Porter Payne and Porter Otis Payne Indoor Athletic facility. 'We went to the indoor at like 3 a.m. and he was throwing me routes,' Henderson said. 'Had cleats on and everything. All strapped up.' That's another thing about Henderson that screams potential. He doesn't believe in rankings or stars. 'I'm at the field every day,' he said. 'Every chance I get. I trust my preparation and I don't believe the hype. I believe in my preparation and I know me. That way I know I'm going to do what I have to do when the challenges come.' Miss any Intel?

  • A woman is recounting a terrifying and vicious dog attack at a park in Pineville, North Carolina, Monday and when police tried to seize that dog, the owner took off, leading police on a slow-speed chase for miles.  >> Read more trending news  Abryana Heggins said she remembers all the thoughts that were rushing through her mind as a huge dog attacked her at a Pineville dog park.  'I just kept thinking 'What's happening? Why is this happening? How am I gonna get this dog off of me,'' Heggins said.  She said it all started when a very large dog owned by Terilyn Jackson started attacking a husky in the park.  'At first, he grabbed the husky by the back of its neck and then, grabbed its tail and started shaking its head aggressively,' Heggins said. 'The woman got a whistle and blowing at him.' She and her friend Jaylen rushed to get their dogs out of the park, but suddenly, she said she felt pressure on her arm.  'I just ended up being dragged across the ground by the dog, and he started shaking and locked onto my arm and there's people yelling, and she's yelling and Jaylen is trying to rip the dog off my arm,' Heggins said.  Her friend jumped on top of the dog and fought it until Pineville police arrived. Officers told Jackson they needed to take her dog into custody, but they said she took her dog and drove off.  Officers turned on their lights and sirens and followed her. They said she drove the speed limit the entire time, but refused to stop.  At one point, they said she tried to hit their patrol car. Six miles later, she arrived at an animal hospital on Archdale Drive in Charlotte.  Eventually, police arrested Jackson.  'I could have been an 8-year-old or a child and that would be worse than what I got or Jaylen,' Heggins said. Her friend Jaylen suffered several bites and broke a finger during all of this.  The dog is under what is called a 'rabies quarantine.' Animal control officials are monitoring it while police look into its background and decide if it should be put down. 
  • Pete Burdon received a call from his daughter about a post circulating on Facebook that was getting a lot of attention.  >> Read more trending news  Gunnery Sgt. John Guglielmino, a Marine Corps veteran from Clay County, Florida was sick in the hospital and his daughter’s final plea was to get as many visitors as she could to say goodbye to her dad.  “I contacted her right away and I said would this be a good time to go over there,” said Pete Burdon, a retired Navy civilian who spent 37 years working with the Navy. Burdon said he responded to the call because it felt like it was important to say goodbye to a fellow veteran, even if he didn’t know him personally. Last week he gave him a hat and a hero’s salute. “When I joked with him you can see that he tried to smile and then he tried to salute after he put that hat on, that was really a touching moment for me,” Burdon said.  His daughter Katherine Boccanelli told me her father served three tours in Vietnam. She said he suffered a stroke back in April and he was diagnosed with cancer from exposure to Agent Orange. She didn’t want him to feel alone with his last few days on earth so she put the post out on social media.  What she didn’t expect was to see the outpour from the community.  “For her it was a step she didn’t know was going to happen when she put it out there, about a 100 people showed up in that short time,” Burdon said.  Burdon says he said goodbye to Guglielmino in the hospital and he’ll be there tomorrow to say his final farewell at the funeral.  The funeral will be Wednesday at 11 a.m. at Crossroads to Victory Church in Raiford, Florida.  Guglielmino’s family says any veterans who visited who wanted to come out and pay their respects are welcome to attend.

  • Within the past month, residents in Virginia-Highland have told police there were a dozen sightings of a peeping Tom in their neighborhood. Police have now released a photo of a person of interest, Channel 2 Action News reported. Neighbors who live on Greenwood Avenue have called police to report sightings of the man peeping into windows since September, Channel 2 reported. In some cases, he’s allegedly climbed on top of air conditioning units to try to look into bathroom windows. “There was a man standing and looking directly at me through the cracks in my blinds,” a woman, who asked the news station to remain anonymous, said. “We came face to face in the window. It’s very, very violating.” Last Thursday about midnight, another neighbor’s Ring doorbell camera spotted the man near her home, Channel 2 reported. The 12 sightings happened along the same street but at three different buildings. The most recent sighting was Saturday about 11 p.m., when a resident chased the man off while holding a screwdriver, the news station reported. “My fear is that eventually he’s going to get bored with just peeping into people’s windows,” the woman said. Anyone with information on the person of interest is asked to contact CrimeStoppers at 404-577-8477 or online at www.StopCrimeATL.com. Tips can be sent anonymously and information that leads to an arrest and indictment in this investigation can earn tipsters up to $2,000. In other news:

  • Update 7 p.m. EDT Oct 22:  Police in Sumter, South Carolina found the remains of missing 5-year-old Nevaeh Adams in a landfill after searching for over two months. >> Read more trending news According to WIS-TV, police discovered the remains on Friday, and through DNA testing, determined that they belonged to Adams.
