Good luck, man. It’s been a pleasure watching you develop into one of the best defensive backs in college football.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch…
Georgia football coach Kirby Smart talks a good game, but he’ll be the first to tell you, it doesn’t matter if the players aren’t listening.
“When you’re a competitor and you go on the field, your intention is to win the game,” Smart said, explaining why he doesn’t expect the No. 9-ranked Bulldogs to take the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl matchup with No. 9 Cincinnati lightly when the teams meet at 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 1.
“At the end of the day it takes the leaders on the team to buy into that and import it to those guys,” Smart said. “Coaches, it’s always important to us, it’s our livelihood. But is it going to be important to the players? That’s the key ingredient.”
Is this Smart’s toughest sales job since he convinced the four rising seniors to come back in 2017?
