Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart’s recruiting success apparently bothering some in Alabama

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart delivered a No. 1 recruiting class for 2018, a fact that has apparently been noticed by some around Smart’s former program at Alabama. I’ll talk more on today’s show about why some Crimson Tide supporters are a little unhappy seeing Smart enjoying recruiting wins that used to belong to Alabama.

10-minute mark: I’ll share some more audio from Smart on his thoughts about UGA’s 2018 class.

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

  • A discussion about which freshmen offensive linemen are most likely to contribute early
  • Some thoughts on the incoming freshmen linebackers and the likelihood that a star could emerge from that group in 2018
  • Whether a 2017 signee that didn’t breakout last season could be set up for big things this upcoming year
  • The chances that freshman running back James Cook earns early playing time
  • The reasons why UGA’s 2019 class could be better than its No. 1 ranked 2018 class
  • And an examination of why defensive tackle is probably one of UGA’s positions of needs for the 2019 class

35-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines including Ole Miss basketball coach Andy Kennedy choosing to step down at season’s end, some praise from ESPN for Tennessee, and Sports Illustrated’s Signing Day winners and losers.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
