I bet Barnhart wishes he’d come up with that phrase first.
His post is worth reading, if only because Pruitt opens up a fair bit assessing last year’s defensive effort. (If Barnhart has a real strength, it’s getting football folks to talk to him.) And it’s hard not to like this quote:
Given the progress that Georgia made in year one under Pruitt, there is a strong belief here—and elsewhere–that things will be significantly better in year two.
“Jeremy Pruitt got more out of his talent at Georgia than just about anybody else in the conference,” another SEC defensive coordinator told me. “Everybody who has to play Georgia noticed.”
Ah, I love the smell of promise in the offseason.
