Beginning of the show: Georgia’s Kirby Smart will soon join the fraternity of coaches who’ve won national championships according to CBS Sports’ Tom Fornelli — who recently explained why it’s “only a matter of time” until Smart accomplishes the feat. Other CBS writers had their own opinions — including one who touted Florida’s Dan Mullen. I’ll explain on today’s show why I think Smart is a safer bet that Mullen and other coaches who’ve found the national championship elusive thus far in their careers.

10-minute mark: I highlight a fun video showcasing the motivational skills of UGA wide receivers coach Cortez Hankton, and explain why Hankton could prove to be a coaching star on the rise over the next couple years.

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

  • Thoughts on four-star offensive lineman Noah Josey
  • An update on five-star offensive tackle Amarius Mims
  • An update on UGA’s running back recruiting
  • A description of why five-star safety James Williams is such a intriguing prospect
  • And a discussion involving four-star defensive end Dallas Turner

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including a four-star Florida signee reportedly entering the transfer portal, a 2021 Gators commit’s plea for his fellow Florida pledges to stop de-committing, another three-star commitment for Tennessee and some hopeful talk from Arkansas about plans to begin the season on time.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
