Beginning of the show: 5-star offensive lineman Clay Webb committed to Georgia Monday, and some Alabama fans think the timing of the decision was part of a plan by UGA coach Kirby Smart to demonstrate recruiting momentum for his program. I’ll explain on today’s show why UGA’s so-called momentum is about more than just perception.
