If you’re looking for a shot of optimism this morning, MaconDawg serves one up for you in this post.
I am more confident in Kirby Smart than I was when he was hired because he has demonstrated to me that he is willing to forego results in the short term in order to build a team that should be better in 2017, and could be really, really, really good in 2018 if all goes according to plan. Because he clearly has a plan, it is a good plan, and I think that it is really the only plan capable of getting Georgia where it wants to go, even if I am less than sure that it will work.
I do think that’s Kirby Smart’s strongest point right now. I also think that the short term is painful because Georgia has chosen to take its lumps with a guy who’s learning on the job. It wouldn’t have been my way of doing things, but that’s water under the bridge right now.
