Now you may think this is a contradiction in terms…
While Smart described his first season as Georgia’s coach as “disappointing,” the first paragraph of Smart’s bio states that “after one season, he has not disappointed.”
… but that’s only because you lack perspective.
Sure, from Smart’s standpoint — and the fans’, for that matter — 2016 was not all it should have been on the field. But from Butts-Mehre’s point of view, it was a huge year, largely because of what they were able to leverage from Smart’s honeymoon: passage of a Open Records law that keeps a lid on information, #93K, increased ticket charges, the continuing health of the reserve fund while embarking on large scale capital projects, targeted fund raising opportunities, etc.
So, hells yeah, he hasn’t disappointed. Them, anyway.
