Beginning of the show: Georgia arguably has one of the best defenses in America, but even though the overall talent level isn’t in question, there are concerns about who will emerge as leaders. One of the prime candidates to thrive in a leadership role is linebacker Monty Rice according to former UGA quarterback Jake Fromm, who appeared on a Virtual DawgNation Appreciation video broadcast on Friday.
