Another upside to upgrading the schedule

While we’re on the subject of trolling, you gotta like this.

Smart took over a very good program in 2016 and has both modernized and improved it. It reached the title game in his second season and took Alabama to the wire in the SEC title game last year. He’s signed’s No. 1 recruiting class in 2018 and 2019.

Now he’s shaking up the future by changing the way SEC teams generally schedule. It may even be spilling over.

Just Tuesday, Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin took to Twitter to announce, “There are a couple future home-and-home series we are getting ready to announce. Just waiting on some final contract signatures in the coming weeks.”

It’s not as flashy as social media mockery about 14000, but Georgia getting all this favorable national attention over its scheduling upgrade is being noticed by that school down south.  Kirby may not run his mouth, but he knows how to hit the mark, no?

  1. I’ve been waiting for the media to call out FU’s scheduling because it has been atrocious. Sure, they play F$U every year, but the fact it has been decades since they played an OOC outside the state of Florida is ridiculous.

    Hours of continual conversation the past couple of days about UGA’s scheduling being a model for others to follow. Many attribute it to getting ahead of the changes coming with an expected 8 team playoff, also several saying UGA has always been one of the SEC teams not afraid to schedule aggressively. Some noted it was a great move for UGA fans, even though Sanford isn’t close to being one of the stadiums getting slammed the hardest with attendance problems.
    I should add, I think Kirby ain’t skeered of anybody. Very positive move by UGA, nationally folks will remember this proactive move.
    Thanks Kirby (shame you have to show McDummy how to do everything)!

    Kirby appears to channel ole Teddy Roosevelt (Talk softly and carry a big stick). Old Mullet head down in Gainesville appears to be more like the Wizard of Oz and hopes you won’t look behind the curtain. To use a Texas phrase, he is “all hat and no cattle”.
