Welp, this should put entirely to rest the how bare was the cupboard Mark Richt left Kirby Smart debate.
“They don’t come any finer than coach Richt,” Smart said. “I still talk to him some, and it says so much about him the way he’s continued to support the kids on this team and support Georgia. The cupboard wasn’t bare when we got here. Now, we had to go sign a quarterback, but we had players. I know a lot of new coaches talk all the time about how they don’t have enough good players when they get there, but I can tell you this place was in better shape than Alabama was when we got there in 2007.”
That quarterback he signed was recruited by Richt, as well.
For some of you, the horse’s mouth probably won’t be enough, though, amirite?
