Reading between the lines from what Smart said on yesterday’s radio show, it sounds like he’s growing pretty settled with his starting 22, but not so comfortable with the depth behind them. Yeah, that’s what regular seasons are for, but I find myself hoping that Georgia can stay reasonably healthy in the first half of the year.
Smart also touched on the injury to senior Malkom Parrish, a two-year starter at cornerback who underwent surgery on a broken bone in his foot. Parrish is not expected to be ready for the season opener on Sept. 2, and his status for Week 2 at Notre Dame is also in doubt.
“We hope to get him back as soon as possible,” Smart said. “He’s certainly got a great attitude about things … It’s really sad because he was having a great camp.”
