Man, what a difference a year makes. Last preseason, it seemed like all we heard about from Georgia’s head coach were the talent deficiencies with which he was stuck. Compare then to now:
The Georgia football coach took it a step further on Wednesday morning during an interview with Atlanta’s “Front Row” on 680 The Fan when asked if there was a game-changer at wide receiver.
“I think as a whole, it’s a great unit,” Smart said. “It’s now one of the more deeper positions on our team, where last year I didn’t feel like it was that way, especially from a special teams standpoint.”
Seven wideouts are starters on special teams, Smart said.
“Is there going to be that open, mind-blowing game-changer, I don’t know,” he said. “Terry has certainly shown some ability to do that. It would be helpful if he could. The young kids are coming along well, Mark Webb, Matt Landers, Trey Blount. All of those are really pushing.”
He said he doesn’t really consider early enrollee J.J. Holloman as a freshman anymore.
“He’s one of the most physical receivers I’ve been around,” Smart said. “It’s been a good group.”
Well, shee-it. I wonder who gets the blame if this group doesn’t produce this season.
