Georgia football podcast: Steve Spurrier forced to admit Kirby Smart building something ‘pretty formidable’

Beginning of the show: Georgia is building something “pretty formidable” according to former Florida and South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier on the Paul Finebaum show Monday. I’ll have some fun on today’s show with Spurrier’s remarks. I’ll also talk about why UGA’s lack of sacks is currently being offset by an area in which the Bulldogs defense is excelling.

10-minute mark: I go Around the DawgHouse — presented by Brasstown Valley Resort and Spa in Towns County, Ga. — with a look at UGA wide receiver Mecole Hardman and a discussion of whether he should be considered for the Heisman Trophy if his fast start to the season continues.

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

  • Freshmen who made contributions for UGA Saturday — including outside linebacker Azeez Ojulari, safety Otis Reese and defensive lineman Jordan Davis
  • Freshman left tackle Cade Mays’ first UGA start
  • Whether LSU’s win vs. Auburn might make 5-star running back John Emery Jr. reconsider the Tigers
  • An impressive showing for 5-star wide receiver — and UGA commit — Dominick Blaylock on national TV Friday
  • And a discussion of why 4-star defensive back DJ Daniel was spotted at UGA Saturday despite being committed to South Carolina

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including praise for LSU after the Auburn win, Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt being asked about athletic director Phillip Fulmer’s presence at Vols’ practices and reaction to a humorous video of Florida coach Dan Mullen dancing after the Gators win vs. Colorado State.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and preview some of the top SEC Week 4 match-ups.
