Georgia football podcast: Possibility of Kirby Smart as ‘coach for life’ sparks debate

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart has had an impressive run of success through his first three years at UGA. However, former UGA coach Mark Richt’s record was impressive after three seasons too. I’ll discuss on today’s show a topic first introduced by the AJC’s Mark Bradley regarding whether Smart could be UGA coach “for life.”

10-minute mark: I share audio of DawgNation’s Mike Griffith’s recent conversation with incoming freshman running back Kenny McIntosh and an enticing possibility from DawgNation recruiting insider Jeff Sentell about the chances UGA might be trending with 5-star defensive lineman Jordan Burch.

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

  • The Board of Regents giving official approval to Dooley Field at Sanford Stadium
  • Mike’s thoughts on McIntosh
  • A discussion of how grad transfer wide receiver Lawrence Cager could fit into the Bulldogs’ offense
  • And a look at whether Smart could be UGA coach for life

30-minute mark: I take a look at SEC headlines including a new home for 2019 Florida defensive back signee Chris Steele, Miami quarterback Tate Martell’s description of the blunt message he apparently received from Ohio State coaches at the end of last season, and a stern statement from Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt about what he hopes to see from his team this summer.

End of show: I share the Summer Q&A and the Gator Hater Updater.
