Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart’s praise of Lorenzo Carter suggests good things for UGA defense

Beginning of the show: I discuss some recent compliments Georgia coach Kirby Smart gave to his senior outside linebacker Lorenzo Carter. I’ll explain why Smart’s praise could predict success for more than just Carter.

10-minute mark: I address whether the UGA offense is likely to have a better season than it had in 2016.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Seth Emerson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • Whether Georgia needs a convincing win vs. Appalachian State
  • Wide receiver Ahkil Crumpton’s role this season
  • Why Bulldogs quarterback Jacob Eason thinks sophomore wide receiver Mecole Hardman adds “spice” to UGA’s offense
  • Seth’s prediction about the starting right guard
  • And the likelihood Rodrigo Blankenship’s scholarship status becomes a distraction

30-minute mark: I discuss other SEC headlines, including Florida’s 10 suspended players for Saturday’s game vs. Michigan, the Gators announcing Felipe Franks as starting quarterback, Tennessee coach Butch Jones’ statement that he wasn’t yet naming a starting quarterback, LSU running back Derrius Guice being cleared to play vs. BYU, and a preview of the Thursday night Arkansas-Florida A&M game.

35-minute mark: CBS Sports’ Barrett Sallee joins the show to explain why he picked UGA to make the College Football Playoff.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
