Kirby Smart recruits via helicopter.
Is it the best look when your players aren't getting paid?
No, but whatever. There is recruiting that needs to be done.
Here's a look into the budget:
Arcade games at a cost of $8,880......is that not an NCAA violation?
Georgia staff members traveled on some 140 charter flights that totaled $850,610 through Georgia Jet and Atlanta Air Charter.
Another mode of transportation, The Kirby Copter as it’s become known, accounted for $83,260 in expenses.
Five Bar ($98,153), Saucehouse Barbecue ($48,154), Classic City Café ($26,621), Outback ($17,937), Champy’s Famous Fried Chicken (12,705), Carraba’s ($7,383) , Chickfil-A ($6,340) and LRG Provisions ($4,190)......Georgia loves Outback. Surprised not to see any
$79,616 in charges for stays at Springhill Suites....sounds like a Spa where you'd get a rub & tug.
Overall, Georgia paid around 150k per recruit in the 2019 class and that's not including all the money spent on duffel bags if you know what I mean.
Amateurism doesn't exist. Just pay the kids.
