Georgia football podcast: One thing UGA fans won’t worry about with Kirby Smart

Beginning of the show: It’s commonly assumed that anything can happen in rivalry matchups -- even when the game appears lopsided, such as Saturday’s renewal of Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate between Georgia and Georgia Tech. It’s been said more than once that you can “throw the records out the window” when familiar foes such as the Bulldogs and Yellow Jackets compete against each other.

It might be true in some instances that the heavy favorite could overlook the less talented -- but highly motivated -- underdog. Yet that’s not likely to be true for this UGA team as long as Kirby Smart is coach. I’ll explain more about why on today’s show.

10-minute mark: I discuss UGA linebacker Nakobe Dean’s case for the Butkus Award as the nation’s top linebacker.

20-minute mark: DawgNation’s Connor Riley joins the show.

40-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including the leading name to become Florida’s next coach.

45-minute mark: I discuss Missouri coach Eli Drinkwitz unmercifully trolling former Florida coach Dan Mullen in what turned out to be Mullen’s last game.

End of show: I 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.
