Beginning of the show: Georgia coach Kirby Smart joined ESPN analysts on the SEC Network Wednesday to recap National Signing Day and the phrasing of one question perfectly sums up the way UGA put together the country’s No. 1 class. I’ll share the audio on today’s show.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Seth Emerson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • How UGA was able to sign 26 in its 2018 class
  • The outlook for freshman cornerback Tyson Campbell
  • The differences between Smart and former UGA coach Mark Richt on the recruiting trail
  • The addition of Scott Fountain (returning to UGA after serving in analyst role in 2017) and former Vanderbilt wide receivers coach Cortez Hankton to Smart’s staff
  • An update on Deangelo Gibbs
  • And an assessment of fan reaction to the UGA ticket price increase

30-minute mark: I take a look at the Signing Day performances of some of UGA’s SEC rivals.
