Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart has destroyed his critics’ favorite narrative

Beginning of the show: Many college football fans and media members have frequently tossed a “backhanded” compliment in the direction of Georgia coach Kirby Smart. In their eyes, Smart’s a great recruiter, but that prowess in acquiring talent has covered up what they see as a deficiency in his in-game coaching ability. If that was ever true, it’s arguably true no longer now that the Bulldogs are the reigning national champions. I’ll discuss on today’s show why that win is apparently causing some to reconsider their assessment of Smart.

10-minute mark: I address tight end Brock Bowers shoulder injury that will reportedly keep him out of spring practice.

20-minute mark: DawgNation’s Connor Riley joins the show to discuss the latest news with the Bulldogs -- including some thoughts on former UGA quarterback Matthew Stafford winning the Super Bowl and the Bulldogs’ ongoing pursuit of a defensive backs coach.

40-minute mark: I take a look at other SEC headlines including some interesting comments recently shared by the league’s commissioner, Greg Sankey.

End of show: I award a Golden Shoe winner and share the Gator Hater Updater and the Gator Hater Countdown.
