Kirby Smart has not minced words about Georgia’s lack of overall depth. This morning, in an interview with Atlanta radio station 680 The Fan he repeated his concerns in the wake of his first opportunity to examine his squad after national signing day.

Georgia’s head coach is telling the fanbase that he has concerns about the team’s current depth. Are we listening to a new head coach verbalize his nightmares or a savvy SEC veteran managing expectations…or a bit of both?
