Loran Smith, playing the “stay the course” card for Kirby Smart’s benefit, totally loses me with this nugget:
It is an old story, a latent trend which has plagued the Georgia program in recent years. There often has been no killer instinct. Putting teams away has been an issue for some time. The Nichols State game was not exactly an anomaly. The Colonels were simply better than Georgia in many areas with regard to personnel.
If that’s not the result of poor editing, that is the most delusional thing I’ve seen all season. Nicholls didn’t finish its season with a winning record and we’re supposed to believe a 5-6 FCS squad was competitive from a talent standpoint with Georgia? Oh, puh-leeze.
If that’s the case, Kirby Smart is the SEC coach of the year, hands down.
