Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart perfectly explains why the SEC championship game is special

Beginning of the show: The SEC championship game has an atmosphere unrivaled by anything in football — possibly including the Super Bowl — according to Georgia coach Kirby Smart. I’ll share audio of that comment, explain why Clemson coach Dabo Swinney is jealous of the SEC’s prestige and update UGA running back D’Andre Swift’s shoulder injury on today’s show.

10-minute mark: I share audio of LSU coach Ed Orgeron  complimenting UGA’s defense, and discuss this week’s Road to Atlanta broadcasts and our special event at Marlow’s in Peachtree Corners Thursday night.

20-minute mark: Former UGA All-American Jon Stinchcomb joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Whether UGA’s defense can stop LSU’s offense
  • The negative impact high-powered offenses have seemingly had on defenses (including Alabama’s and possibly LSU’s)
  • And Jon’s thoughts on UGA wide receiver George Pickens’ ejection from the Georgia Tech game and subsequent suspension for the first half of the SEC championship game

35-minute mark: I discuss other SEC headlines including Auburn’s thrilling Iron Bowl win vs. Alabama, Missouri firing Barry Odom, Ole Miss firing Matt Luke, and Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks and South Carolina’s Jake Bentley entering the transfer portal.

40-minute mark: I share my own thoughts on Pickens’ situation.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
