Georgia football podcast: One thing that separates UGA from other championship contenders
Beginning of the show: Georgia’s recipe for winning national championships has obviously included winning plenty of battles for elite recruits since Kirby Smart became Georgia coach in 2016. But, perhaps surprisingly to some, the Bulldogs still don’t rank as the most talented team in college football according to a new piece published by Bud Elliott from 247Sports highlighting his so-called “Blue Chip Ratio,” which ranks the programs that have signed the highest percentage of former four and five-star recruits over the previous four years. I’ll explain on today’s show why UGA’s willingness to trust lesser recruits in significant roles as allowed the Bulldogs to separate itself from much of its competition -- including Alabama and Ohio State, which rank ahead of UGA in the Blue Chip Ratio according to Elliott.
