Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart gets salty with media over couple issues

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart got testy with reporters regarding a couple issues  Saturday  — including linebacker Natrez Patrick’s late arrival to practice due to attending a funeral and persistent questions about UGA’s tight end usage. I’ll share the audio and discuss what it all means on today’s show.

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

  • Positive assessment of defense from Saturday’s scrimmage?
  • Has Richard LeCounte responded well to criticism?
  • Update on Natrez Patrick – not seen at practice
  • D’Andre Swift’s status uncertain for G-Day game
  • Expectations for G-Day scrimmage?
  • Kirby Smart pushes back against tight end questions
  • Former UGA great expecting big season from Terry Godwin

30-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including reactions to the Florida’s spring game, Alabama announcing a setback for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, Jalen Hurts impressing this Spring, Ross Tucker criticizing Nick Saban over Reuben Foster, Tommy Tuberville calling Jeremy Pruitt ‘head coach in training’, and Kirby Smart saying that G-Day could be a showcase for Elijah Holyfield.

Show close: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and discuss the Diamond Dawgs’ series loss to Kentucky.
