Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart laughs at Carson Beck’s critics

Beginning of the show: Some observers have wondered what to make of a slightly slow start for new Georgia quarterback Carson Beck on Saturday against UT-Martin, but UGA coach Kirby Smart finds any criticism of Beck -- who settled in nicely before exiting the game with the outcome well in hand in the third quarter on Saturday -- humorous based on his response to a question about Beck in Monday’s press conference.
