Beginning of the show: An Alabama reporter made an appearance on a Baton Rouge, La. radio station this week and suggested that UGA coach Kirby Smart might’ve delayed the hiring of former Crimson Tide strength and conditioning coach Scott Cochran as a way of sabotaging Alabama’s offseason workout program.
