Georgia’s post-spring 2-deep

Anyone who follows this blog daily — and I thank you all — will know we’ve spent the last few weeks breaking down Georgia’s projected 2018 post-spring depth chart position by position, player by player. We wrapped up the series with a look at special teams Friday, but we aren’t finished with Georgia’s depth chart quite yet.

It dawned on me that in the thousands of words I’ve written about Georgia’s depth chart during the last few weeks, I never bothered to actually provide a depth chart. So, I figured I’d resolve that oversight Monday with simple two-deeps for Georgia’s offense, defense and special teams. And if you missed any posts in the series, you can catch up with these links.

Details of Kirby Smart’s contract released

We finally know the details of Kirby Smart’s massive new seven-year contract, provided here by Chip Towers of DawgNation. It’s all pretty basic stuff, but his buyout is potentially interesting.

Typically in college football, a coach’s buyout decreases with each year of the contract. But Smart’s contract doesn’t have a diminishing buyout. If he’s ever fired by Georgia, he’ll be owed 65 percent of his remaining contract.

If you’re interested in a deeper look at the implications of such a buyout, check out this post from Seth Emerson of The Athletic.

Deangelo Gibbs enrolled in summer classes

Deangelo Gibbs is reportedly back at Georgia after missing the spring semester. A university official confirmed to Jason Butt of the Macon Telegraph that Gibbs is enrolled in classes for the summer term.

Georgia softball to host NCAA Regional

Georgia softball suffered an upset to Arkansas in the SEC Tournament, but with the NCAA Tournament around the corner, it will have to bounce back quickly. Luckily, the Bulldogs will hold home-field advantage in their regional.

Georgia was selected as one of 16 host sites for NCAA Regionals, which will be played at Jack Turner Stadium this weekend, May 18 to May 20. The Dawgs will host California, Harvard and Northwestern in the four-team, double-elimination regional round. They open with Harvard on Friday at 2:30 p.m. (TV: SEC Network).

This is the 17th overall — and 17th consecutive — NCAA postseason appearance for Georgia softball.
