As mentioned in the comments to my previous post, one thing you couldn’t miss watching the three spring games yesterday was the size of each of the crowds. Maybe everyone was on spring break or at home getting ready to watch the Final Four, but it was not an It Just Means More Saturday.
Trend? Timing? Who knows, but maybe that explains why Kirby hasn’t been quite as pushy this year about G-Day as before.
So while there hasn’t been that much buzz to date, it doesn’t sound like Smart’s ready to relinquish the Bulldogs’ place in the battle for spring game supremacy.
“University of Georgia fans love this game,” he said after the Bulldogs’ first scrimmage in Sanford Stadium. “I certainly don’t expect anything less. I’m not sitting here proclaiming that everybody has to come to the game. I think we’ve got a really good football team coming back. I think we’ve got an exciting team.”
I agree. I’ll be there.
