Beginning of the show: Freshman running back Zamir White’s ACL tear was disappointing news for Georgia fans last Saturday, but the aftermath of the injury speaks well of the environment around the UGA program. I’ll talk on today’s show about how former UGA running backs apparently reached out to White according to UGA coach Kirby Smart. I’ll also discuss Smart’s compelling reasoning for using elite athletes — like White, who was injured practicing punt coverage — on special teams.
