This is what happens when you take trolling seriously.
Aside from that, does anyone really believe Smart will be under the slightest bit of pressure if his second year goes as well as Richt’s second season did?
Kirby Smart, the Georgia man, walked into the head coaching job with way more good will than Mark Richt did. (Initially, Richt wasn’t even the unanimous choice of the men making the hiring decisions then. If that doesn’t convince you, compare their compensation.) Richt built his good will with the results he achieved in his first five seasons. Eventually, he overdrew at the good will bank, as Towers points out, but to the extent he was pressure-free, it was due to his own efforts.
Smart has an obvious path to eliminating pressure on himself. The reason he’s facing more right now is because (1) the fan base has those first five years of Richt’s career to point to as a baseline; (2) it’s been promised results by the man who hired Smart; and (3) the 2016 season was a disappointment. Duh.
Rocket science, this isn’t. I suspect John Kincade knows that as well as the rest of us do.
