Beginning of the show: The degree to which Georgia’s new offense — led by first-year coordinator Todd Monken — changes from what UGA fans have seen from the Bulldogs in the past will be determined by this year’s “playmakers,” including running backs Zamir White and James Cook as well as wide receiver George Pickens according to UGA coach Kirby Smart, who made an appearance on an Atlanta sports radio station, 680 The Fan, on Thursday on the morning show known as The Front Row. I’ll share more of what Smart had to say on today’s show.
