Georgia football podcast: UGA fans should take Kirby Smart’s assessment of Tennessee seriously

Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart has repeatedly praised Tennessee’s offensive and defensive lines this week. I’ll discuss on today’s show why UGA fans who might not be ready to take the Vols seriously as a threat to the Bulldogs should consider Smart’s assessment of this week’s opponent.

10-minute mark: I discuss how UGA has performed compared to expecations in recent home games.

15-minute mark: CBS Sports’ Brad Nessler joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • Smart’s comparison of Tennessee with last week’s UGA opponent, Auburn
  • The emergence of Stetson Bennett as the Bulldogs’ starting quarterback
  • And an early preview of next Saturday’s game at Alabama

25-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including the back and forth between Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin and Alabama coach Nick Saban, and the possibility the Ole Miss-Alabama game could be moved due to expected bad weather.

30-minute mark: Former UGA wide receiver Terrence Edwards joins the show to preview this Saturday’s game against the Vols and to discuss the play of the Bulldogs wide receivers — including Kearis Jackson.

35-minute mark: I discuss an interesting description of Todd Monken’s offense from Bulldogs wide receiver Demetris Robertson.
