Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart joined ESPN analysts on the SEC Network Wednesday to recap National Signing Day, and the phrasing of one question perfectly sums up the way UGA put together the country’s No. 1 class. I’ll share the audio on the show.

  • How UGA was able to sign 26 players in its 2018 class
