Man, what a day Kirby had! He rakes in what may turn out to be Georgia’s greatest recruiting class of the last three decades, fills out the last two openings on his coaching staff and then receives a terrific gift from Dan Mullen.
Fresh off National Signing Day, coach Dan Mullen made his first public appearance in front of the fans themselves, hosting an hour-long chat with fans, season ticket holders, Alumni Association members and members of Gator Boosters.
It didn’t take him long to draw some loud applause from the fans.
Just one question into the Q&A portion of of the program — OK, the first guy who got the mic to ask a question asked three questions, technically — he was faced with the question on many Florida fans’ minds on Wednesday.
How will Florida keep up with Georgia, which posted a historic No. 1 recruiting class just weeks after playing for the national championship?
“Listen, winning one SEC Championship Game doesn’t make you a dominant program, you know what I’m saying?” Mullen said with a laugh. “In two of the last three years, we’ve been to the SEC Championship Game. So even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while.”
As the fans roared with applause and laughter, Mullen continued on, light-hearted and enjoying himself.
The bye week bulletin boards write themselves this season, don’t they?
