Kirby, at last night’s Macon Touchdown Club, jokes about a (slight) decline in enthusiasm.
Last year, Smart enjoyed the fruits of being on the so-called coaching honeymoon, considering he was a new hire who had yet to appear in a college game as a head coach. This time, however, Smart had a full football season to reflect on when speaking to the crowd.
“It means a lot for me to come back and speak at the Macon Touchdown Club,” Smart said. “I do notice a few less people than last year. Last year we had them up in the (track overlooking the gym). We have to win some more games to bring them all back.”
As long as the checks keep rolling in, Butts-Mehre will chuckle along. But how will McGarity sell this year’s G-Day game? I’m thinking #QBR.
