Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart’s prediction about Alabama, SEC appears to be coming true

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart once said he thought the rest of the SEC might be closing the gap on Alabama. Recent statistical projections suggest Smart’s prediction might be coming true. I’ll talk more about that on today’s show — including an explanation of why the rise of other  conference programs could not only make things a little tougher for the Crimson Tide, but also UGA.

10-minute mark: I’ll discuss recently released national championship odds for UGA courtesy of the Las Vegas SuperBook.

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

  • How top basketball commit, Anthony Edwards might increase UGA’s brand
  • What UGA is getting from grad transfer wide receiver Lawrence Cager
  • The upcoming head-to-head battle between UGA and Clemson for 2020 recruits
  • How Tennessee’s reported hiring of Derrick Ansley as defensive backs coach could impact the Bulldogs’ recruiting efforts
  • And a look at 4-star defensive end Jacolbe Cowan and what will influence his commitment decision

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including more thoughts on the Vols’ hiring of Ansley, more reports connecting Florida defensive coordinator Todd Grantham to the Cincinnati Bengals, and another former 5-star signee apparently contemplating leaving Auburn.
