Golf with Kirby

Eighteen holes must bring out the optimism in Kirby Smart, based on this ESPN clip.

  • Eason’s “gotten a lot better”.
  • Offensive line is bigger and moving the defense.
  • Chaney is opening the offense up a little.
  • Fromm is competing with Eason “in the meeting room”.

I don’t know about Kirby’s golf game, but his preseason happy talk game is strong.

    Maybe it’s not just happy talk, at least compared with what he said about the red zone defense posted yesterday. As fans we just need to keep the perspective that for now, it’s still just talk, happy or otherwise.

    This is going to be a better team. He knows it. With this much returning talent it better be.

    Eason’s “gotten a lot better”. One can only hope that he has improved his field vision and accuracy.
    Offensive line is bigger and moving the defense. I will believe when I see it. Not holding my breath on this one.
    Chaney is opening the offense up a little. If this is true then there might, just maybe, be hope for this offense.
    Fromm is competing with Eason “in the meeting room”. Fromm is a solid addition to the team but he should pose zero threat of stealing the starting QB spot. If he does, we are in deep trouble.

    I do not find the preseason talk to be happy when he says Chaney is “opening up the offense a little”. Last year’s offense was bad.

    If there is not significant improvement this year Chaney should be replaced.

    If we do no win 11 out of 13 games McGarity should go too. Everybody was upset with the 10 wins Richt produced but if there is no betterment the people in charge need to be held accountable

      Reality, I understand your point of view 100%. The team showed zero progress last season and that was tough to stomach. However, this team is not setup to win 11 games this year. I think that their ceiling is 8 or 9. Week over week improvement is a must this year without question. And it all starts in the trenches…protect the QB and hit the QB. Will it happen? Who knows for sure.

      • 8 wins will not be improvement. 9 will be improvement in results only. This team should have double digit wins if the team (coaches and players) has improved.

        Thanks Skeptic. You may be right about ceilings. In fact, I suspect you are right. But if you are right Chaney and McGarity should go.

        We are now in an era where 10 win seasons are unacceptable and result in firings. McGarity was the one who dictated that and he should be held to the standards he set.

          Why do people continue to hammer this “10 win isn’t good enough” nonsense? CMR was fired because he ran far too loose of a ship, wasn’t fully committed, and because of his continued horrid record against ranked opponents. By the way, as I’ve said quite a few times here yet it continues to be ignored, CMR averaged 9.1 wins yearly in his final 7 years, with an overall winning % pretty much on-par with Donnan’s last 4 years (and Donnan was facing utter juggernauts in both UF and UT during his time).

        Your name certainly is fitting. IMO this easily is a 10 win team — I have them pegged at 11.

          I sure hope you are right. Given the talent level at UGA, the schedule and the improvement that usually comes in year 2 maybe they will win 11 and hopefully more.

          But last year was very disappointing. The Dawgs lost 3 games they should have won and even though that is in the past it may bode poorly for the future.

            This is precisely why CMR was fired — year after year of disappointments, including a rather pathetic record against ranked opponents. Last year Smart deserved a pass given it was his first year as a HC. Now, if the trend continues this year and especially in ’18, he’ll rightfully deserve to have a very warm seat.

    The comments scare the poop out of me. Weren’t we told during spring practices that the offensive line was really pushing around the defense? And then at the spring game — whoops.

    None of us know what all happened in past situations, or what is to come. It is great to discuss and chat in the comments about what we think, but the number of absolutes is what gets funny. Just say it your opinion, don’t act like your opinion is the end all and think you have closed the book on discussions because you have spoken.

    I think the range of opinions show how varied the feelings are, must be the off season where glass half fullers are offset by an equal number of folks who feel the sky will fall by December. Also some who feel KS must perform better this year, others who will let him stay as long as it takes to prove this was a good move. Again no one knows, but the UGA fans are rather unique in how quickly they turn on their own. Sure, all teams have their negative nellies who attack players and coaches, but the size of UGA’s vocal critics, as a percentage, is way out of proportion, especially considering UGA’s performance. This isn’t a dumpster fire, and hasn’t been for a long time, just a lot of folks who have unrealistic expectations given all the factors. Enjoy the season, my opinion is it will be a good one. Only 10+ weeks to go.
