Corso, talking to Uga (mascot): “Georgia is the No. 1 team in the nation, that makes you the No. 1 mascot in the nation. Uga, you and I picked Georgia to win the SEC title. Uga, you and I picked Georgia to win the national championship. Uga, you and I picked Kentucky to win the basketball tournament. But this isn’t basketball, sweetheart.”
