Ludacris paid ludicrous sum to perform at Georgia spring game

College football head coaches will do just about anything to get a recruiting advantage — from hosting a star-studded National Signing Day event to sleepovers or even the good old-fashioned hand-out (we assume). New Georgia head coach Kirby Smart decided to get one of Atlanta’s favorite sons involved in his first spring game. He pulled out the Ludacris card, getting the ATL...
