Enough about Jimbo Fisher. The more important rivalry is Nick Saban-Kirby Smart
Play • 42 min

For a guy whose team went 8-4 last season, Jimbo Fisher sure is receiving a bright spotlight. Fisher got a boost by signing the nation’s No. 1-ranked recruiting class for Texas A&M. The headlines really poured in when Fisher called Nick Saban a narcissist and a false god after Saban’s unproven allegation that the Aggies bought every player on their roster.

Focusing on the Fisher-Saban rivalry ignores the top clash brewing in the SEC: Saban vs. another former assistant, Kirby Smart. After Alabama and Georgia split two matchups last season, they’re again primed to tussle over SEC supremacy. On this episode, hosts Blake Toppmeyer and John Adams evaluate Georgia’s staying power and how Smart emerged from Saban’s shadow to take a prominent place of his own.
