Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart has been clear that replacing the leadership provided by departed seniors such as Nick Chubb and Sony Michel is crucial for UGA. However, there’s another aspect of replacing these running backs that probably doesn’t get enough attention, and I’ll address it on the show.
