Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart’s defense description will make fans stand and cheer

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart was asked Monday if he thought the UGA defense resembled the ones he coached at Alabama. Smart’s response to that offered a comparison that will be much more to the liking of most Bulldogs fans. I’ll share audio of that exchange on the Tuesday show.

10-minute mark: I discuss the quarterback situation involving freshman Jake Fromm and sophomore Jacob Eason.

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

  • The latest on the recruitment of 5-star cornerback Tyson Campbell
  • Why Campbell and other defensive backs —including Gilbert Frierson, Tyreke Johnson and Isaac Taylor-Stuart — were tweeting about UGA Saturday
  • The work 4-star wide receiver Kearis Jackson, a UGA commit, has done recently to try to recruit other prospects to Georgia
  • Where 5-star running back Zamir White fits into the 2018 running back depth chart
  • And the chances UGA can flip defensive tackle Robert Cooper from Florida State

35-minute mark: I discuss some other SEC headlines, including Florida wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland’s injury, LSU’s plans to stick with quarterback Danny Etling, a Tennessee offensive lineman leaving the program, and an interesting statement from Alabama coach Nick Saban.

40-minute mark: I’ll update what Smart said Monday regarding the injuries to some UGA players, including the knee injury sustained by Trent Thompson.

End of show: I discuss the edge that UGA’s defense will maintain even as a big favorite vs. Vanderbilt.
