Today, in Kirby gets it

Geez, this is good.

Kirby Smart stood before his Georgia football team, as he usually does at team meetings, and took a poll: Everyone in here who has beaten Florida, Smart asked them, please stand up.

There were a few awkward moments.

Nobody stood.

“It was sobering,” senior tight end Jeb Blazevich said. “With so much praise going on, on the outside, it’s like, Guys this is where we’re at. Nobody has beaten these guys.”

Take the field with the heat of a thousand suns, boys.  No prisoners.

Aannnd… hate week is off and running.

Holy crap!  Smack talk from Gainesville. (h/t)

Bless your little blue and orange hearts, fellas.


UPDATE:  Gardner’s full quote is even more enjoyable.

“You say they have a great quarterback – I get it. He’s throwing simple passes – I get it. Anybody can throw a slant – I get it,” Gardner said. “But I mean, we’re just playing football. If you call him the best quarterback, so be it, but he has to play Saturday. We’re going to see what his best attribute is.

“If he can beat us with his arm, whoopty do.”

I swear, he sounds like Reggie Ball.


UPDATE #2:  I had to check to make sure I wasn’t missing something.  Florida is seventh in the conference in defensive passer rating, behind the likes of Mississippi State and Vanderbilt.

No more nooners

The Georgia-South Carolina game is set for 3:30PM, on CBS.

I’m guessing that’s a doubleheader day for the network, as I strongly doubt it would pass up Alabama-LSU.

It’s always something at a UT presser.

Booch has now gone third person.  Awesome.

And that was the moment when everything changed for Tennessee football.

Today, in long snappahs

Kirby, bringing the inner Vince Dooley:

The Gators are currently eleventh in the conference in passing offense.

If somebody asks you why the SEC is down, just say…

… it’s the coaching, stupid.

Three SEC coaches out of seven on that list, and Stoops is the lowest paid of the three at just under $4 million a year.

It’s not the journey, but the destination that matters.

Jim Delany asks, “what’s your point?”.
