… well, I wouldn’t say Kirby Smart rested at the ceremony dedicating the $80 million expansion of the Butts-Mehre football complex, but he did make a surprising admission.
“Today is giving thanks for the facilities we’ve been able to get,” Smart told a crowd that featured fans, donors, state legislators and various dignitaries. “But we can’t be done yet. We will not be complacent. We will not sit idly and let others pass us by. It’s been a catch-up game for us for quite a long time. We feel like we have caught up, but now we have to maintain and continue to grow.”
Georgia’s “caught up” in the facilities race? Damn, Kirby. Maintain and continue doesn’t have the same edge when it comes to pushing donors, does it?
