For three sentences, there’s a lot to unpack in this quote:
“George practiced last week,” coach Kirby Smart said Monday. “I think he is going to be able to play. Thought he was going to be able to play last week.”
If he’d said “assume” instead of “thought”, I could have come back with the snark about what happens when you assume. Instead, we’ll just note that Kirbs sounds a mite bit frustrated there.
I don’t know what the story is there, but there’s little doubt this team could have used George’s services against Florida, assuming there was a quarterback who was able to throw something in his general vicinity.
Oops, there’s that “assume” again.
