Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart, Nick Saban on opposite sides of Playoff debate

Beginning of the show: Reports abound that the College Football Playoff could be expanding and two of the biggest names in coaching are seemingly on opposite sides of the discussion. Georgia coach Kirby Smart appeared on the Paul Finebaum Show Wednesday, and showed support for an expanded Playoff. Alabama’s Nick Saban recently expressed a contrary point of view. I’ll discuss more on that topic on today’s show.

10-minute mark: I’ll share audio of Smart discussing his excitement for the Bulldogs’ season opener vs. Clemson.

20-minute mark: Former UGA wide receiver Terrence Edwards joins the show to discuss possible Playoff expansion and to preview the NFL draft.

35-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including the league announcing the return of Media Days in July.

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

After the show: I take questions and comments as part of the Podcast Cool Down.
