Roll over Beethoven and tell Jeff Dantzler the news: this ain’t no throwaway year.
Smart said Wednesday on “The Paul Finebaum Show” from the Regions Tradition Pro-Am in Hoover, Alabama that he thinks it’s best to embrace such outlooks.
“At the University of Georgia, that is the expectation. We should be a team that is favored to win the East each year. We should recruit the best players in our state, which is a very productive state, and develop those guys into really good players.”
“We’re still a young team in my mind,” Smart said. “Because over half of our roster will be freshmen or sophomores. But we’ve got some good football players coming back and I’m excited about our team. So I know the expectations are there; that comes with being the head coach at the University of Georgia.”
All I can say in response is hells to the yeah. Coach without fear, coach with confidence, coach however you want to describe it… just accept what they brought you here to do, and do it. That’s what I want out of the head coach.
If only we could hold everyone else associated with Georgia athletics to the same standard and have them hold themselves accountable to us for that.
