Georgia football podcast: ESPN personalities take note of Kirby Smart’s aggressive scheduling

Beginning of the show: Georgia’s tough non-conference games — like the series recently scheduled with Oklahoma — is good for college football and should help UGA possibly earn its way into the College Football Playoff according to ESPN’s Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon. I’ll share audio on today’s show of what the Pardon the Interruption duo said about the Bulldogs on their show this week. I’ll also share some comments from UGA coach Kirby Smart regarding why Georgia has to wait until 2031 to get a return trip from the Sooners.

10-minute mark: I’ll update the situation involving 4-star offensive tackle Tate Ratledge — who announced this week he’ll choose Monday between the Bulldogs and Tennessee.

15-minute mark: Former UGA linebacker Rennie Curran joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Curran’s recent induction into the Gwinnett County Sports Hall of Fame
  • Curran’s thoughts on Nakobe Dean and UGA’s other freshman linebackers
  • And a description of why linebacker can be a challenging position for a freshman
