With all due respect, it’s not what Kirby is selling this week that matters.
“Everything we want is in front of us,” Smart said. “If we let LSU beating us physically beat us twice, then we haven’t done our job. The key for us is to move forward. We still have a good football team, and we still have an opportunity to do everything we want to do.
“Every opportunity we had before is still in front of us. The margin of error is just smaller.”
It’s what his team is buying.
“On the inside, it’s a lot in the same to me,” Georgia tight end Charlie Woerner said. “We lost to Auburn last year, then came back and did great. We’re in the same scenario and can bounce back even stronger.”
This is also different…
Woerner admitted it was slightly different, because the senior leadership of Lorenzo Carter, Nick Chubb, Isaiah Wynn and others aren’t on the roster to take upon the role. But senior center Lamont Gaillard and sophomore wide receiver have become more vocal.
“We’ve got great leaders on the team,” Georgia offensive guard Solomon Kindley said. “When (the departed leaders) left, we just filled in their place. We will follow those guys with whatever they do. It’s their team.”
Let’s hope everybody’s paying attention.
