Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart still has challenge to overcome at UGA

Beginning of the show: Georgia’s key leaders the last two seasons were mostly players who came to UGA because of former Bulldogs coach Mark Richt. As UGA heads toward the 2019 season, there are only a few players left on the roster with ties to Richt. I’ll explain on today’s show why that presents a challenge for UGA coach Kirby Smart — who’ll see his team’s nucleus made up solely of his own recruits for the first time this season.

10-minute mark: I’ll discuss what UGA wide receiver Tyler Simmons and quarterback Jake Fromm recently had to say about the potential for a new-look UGA offense led by new offensive coordinator James Coley this seaon.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Mike Griffith joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Good news for UGA involving defensive tackle Jordan Davis
  • The differences beween Coley’s UGA offense and the one led the last three seasons by former coordinator, Jim Chaney
  • And new leaders who could emerge for UGA

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including possible video of the culprits of the alleged break-in at LSU, Alabama’s decision to schedule a non-conference home-and-home series with West Virginia, Georgia Tech scheduling a series of games at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and a UGA recruiting target turning heads at a recent event.

35-minute mark: I’ll discuss a new t-shirt I’ll be giving away over the next couple weeks, and discuss a recent photo shared by new defensive coordinator Dan Lanning.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
