NCAA Football: CFP National Championship Game-Alabama vs Georgia Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Kirby Smart raked in a couple more five stars, for arguably the best signing class in UGA history. He’s also rounding out his coaching staff yesterday. Suffice it to say, there’s been a lot going on so let’s break back out the calculator! (And if I make any mistakes or fail to include anyone, please let me know in the comments.)

No, really. A team is allowed 85 players on scholarship, so in case you were curious how the math works as of today, Georgia has a few players likely to not be in Athens come August. This may be because they decide to transfer to another school, take a medical hardship, have some legal issues, or perhaps fail to make their grades to enroll, among so many other possible reasons an 18-24 yr old kid has their life circumstances change over a few months.

That leaves us at 89 as of today. So at least four of those listed above aren’t likely to have lockers in Butts-Mehre come August, and as always there could be a few more decide to depart for [reasons] leaving room for perhaps a grad transfer addition (like at say, QB) or to reward hard working walk-ons at snapper and elsewhere on the field.

And with that, we’ll end our math homework for today and give a loud GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DAWGS!
