Georgia football podcast: An important area where Kirby Smart seemingly outperforms some of his peers

Beginning of the show: One of the underrated aspects of building a winning program is hiring quality assistants, and acting quickly when those coaches need to be replaced. I’ll explain on today’s show why that’s an area in which Georgia coach Kirby Smart has quietly excelled at (for the most part) during his first four years on the job.

10-minute mark: I’ll discuss ESPN’s belief that 2020 wide receiver signee Arian Smith could be a breakout performer, and address why early enrollee Justin Robinson, could have something to say about which freshmen emerges from the talented crop of receivers.

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

  • A look at whether incoming freshmen offensive tackle prospects Broderick Jones and Tate Ratledge should be expected to make major contributions this season
  • ESPN’s claim’s about Smith
  • And other possible breakout performers — including five-star tight end Darnell Washington, four-star running back Kendall Milton and five-star defensive lineman Jalen Carter

30-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including LSU hiring former NFL coach Scott Linehan as Joe Brady’s replacement, the increasing number of coaching openings at Tennessee and former UGA assistant and Colorado head coach Mel Tucker turning down the Michigan State job.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
