Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart says not winning division ‘sticks with all of us’

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart, quarterback JT Daniels and defensive tackle Jordan Davis were popular targets for reporters’ questions at SEC Media Days Tuesday. I’ll discuss some of what they had to say during their appearances -- including Smart’s assessment of the lingering disappointment from not winning the SEC East last season and how Daniels can change that feeling this season now that he’s fully healthy.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Mike Griffith joins the show to share the latest news from Media Days -- including updates on the status of recent transfer Arik Gilbert and wide receiver Kearis Jackson.

30-minute mark: I discuss Alabama’s SEC Media Days appearance on Wednesday and explain why Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban’s claim that his quarterback, Bryce Young, is approaching “seven figures” in name, image and likeness revenue is likely untrue.

35-minute mark: I discuss the buzz around the Bulldogs’ season opener vs. Clemson based on what was said during Media Days.

End of show: I award a Golden Shoe winner and update the Gator Hater Countdown.

NOTE: The Podcast Cool Down will return for Thursday’s show.
