Kirby Smart isn’t known for microphone shock and awe. You get what he wants you to get for the most part, and that’s mostly coach talk. That being said, there’s almost always a take-home message for media and fans. Last year he began with a quote from historical philosopher Henry David Thoreau,
“Success comes to those who are too busy to seek it. Say it again. Success comes to those who are too busy to seek it. This is Henry David Thoreau. To me, that’s it. I’m too Busy working. I’m too busy trying to do the next thing.”
This year, the message is clear from the head coach of Georgia Football. Following a national title, they will not be chased.
“People have been asking the question, how does it feel to be hunted, we won’t be hunted at the University of Georgia, I can promise you the hunt we’re doing will be by going to the another way. It’s not something that we’re going to sit around and be passive.”
Another message Smart brings home, they have a lot of talent but what they need is experience.
People say do you have the talent? Do you have enough talent in your program? We have a lot of talent, but what we lack at the moment is experience. It’s our job as coaches to put these guys in a position to succeed and react calmly and have the experience they need to play well against Oregon.
