The process doesn’t have time for your angst.

Can I say I’m amused by all the hand-wringing I’m seeing about the pace at which Kirby Smart is putting together a new staff?

This is a guy who’s spent years under Saban’s tutelage learning how to keep a lid on information about the program not getting out until the head coach is ready for that to happen.  You think that’s something he’s going to ditch now because the fan base isn’t getting the instant gratification it wants?  Get real.  And maybe chill out a bit.

Besides, look at the bright side.  It’s not likely we’re gonna hear about how one of the coordinators eventually hired was Smart’s fifth choice.

  1. that “fifth choice” thing kind of stings a bit.

    The least Kirby could do is offer us a beverage (for comment).

  3. I dig it. It hints at an attention to detail that Richt had been lacking the past few years.

    I agree. UGA could be in Auburn’s position. They have swung and missed on all their targets. With one guy getting offered twice and he is an Auburn alum to boot.

    I like Kirby’s methods just fine if the Auburn example is the alternative.

    Its not like we knew about Todd being switched out with Jeremy anyways. Nobody called that one. I don’t remember anyone picked Shotty either.

    Look at the other bright side too. It’s not likely we’re gonna hear about how Georgia was one of the coordinators fifth choice.

    Looks like nobody at Bama is concerned about Pruitt’s rough edges…guess thats part of the process in the re-education camp.

    Maybe we are doing a trade, Pruitt for assistants yet to be named?

    I just saw a report that Pruitt is headed to Alabama as their DC. So he’s good enough to be the DC at probably the best program in college football with probably the best college football head coach, but we don’t want him…

    • Yes, as the decision to sign Jonathan Taylor showed, Nick Saban is infallible.

      There are very legitimate reasons we did not keep Pruitt. Saban will have his thumb on him and Pruitt needs that. He is lucky Richt was too nice to fire him 6 weeks ago. He is a great coach and not a great human being. Let’s just leave it at that. Smart wants everyone rowing together. That is not CJPs way. At least not until he is a HC. The pressure will be on Pruitt to maintain the D that Saban and smart built. He wobbles and it will get interesting fast.

      • So , you want a great human being not a great coach. Why not hire Mark Richt………………..Also, Senator I believe Saban has a lot more”Long Term” complete knowledge of Pruitt than he did with Taylor. Comparing the two is pretty preposterous…………

      There is obviously alot more thats been going on behind the scenes. Apparently has nothing to do with what Pruitt has accomplished on the field in his time here.

      Bama is his alma mater. He gets to coach directly under Saban ala Kirby and try to learn how to be a head coach someday. Saban is much closer to retirement than Kirby, meaning the Bama job will come open someday soon. He may not get it, but he has a better chance at it coming from the Bama DC job than the UGA DC job. His family is in Ft Payne/Rainsville, an hour or so up I-59 from Tuscaloosa.

      All of those are reasons for him to take the Bama DC job other than “UGA didn’t want him”. People are making it sound like he definitely wants to stay but we won’t let him. That’s not necessarily true.

      • Also Pruit is such a good recruiter, we might as well lose him now before he can be so influential to bring with him an entire UGA recruiting class if he stays long enough, LOL.

        On top of that, we had 2 bad losses to UF, yes it might be due to offense, but 2014 is more defense. In 2015, I would have accepted a UGA loss if it was say 6-3. It shows Pruit’s defense at least shot down UF offense considering he knows McElwain.

          I think you misread me. My personal opinion is we should keep him, but I think he wants to go back to Bama. Simply wanting to keep him doesn’t guarantee he stays. The articles I’m reading seem to have the tone of “Is UGA making a mistake?” For all we know, Kirby wants Pruitt but he wants to go back to his alma mater.

  10. I’m ok with this. Wasn’t that thrilled to hear about the inquiry into the Hogs O-coordinator…not because I didn’t like the inquiry, its just that I didn’t like Bret sharing our business with everyone.

  14. Well, if nothing else, it looks like we got us an obese OL and an obese OC. Sorry, I can’t stand seeing fat coaches, it’s so ironic.

    I think half of America took what the Utah punter said at the awards banquet as a joke. It was a joke alright but the joke was on America.
