GA coach Kirby Smart throws freshman under the bus for yesterday's loss...and the final 4 prediction
Kirby Smart was obviously disappointed in the Bulldog loss yesterday, BUT...the following quote from him shows how shallow a man he is, placing blame and singling out ONE player...how about the other bonehead plays that may well have cost or severely impacted the outcome? Like the off sides on the FG attempt and losing the ball inside the red zone...crickets. What a PATHETIC man to paint this young man with such a burden, maybe a teenager, who was eager to play and contribute. Smart made him a marked man on campus. Geez, he was 2nd or 3rd stringer...how bush league of a coach to do such a thing!!!
“We busted a coverage with a freshman linebacker in there that they ran a wheel route on. Kid’s in the game because the other two are down and they hit a wheel route for a free touchdown," Smart said. "And then we gave them the field goal off the turnover … that was 10 points."
Smart may not have mentioned Wilson by name, but he pointed to the freshman linebacker’s blunder as the difference in his team’s loss. That’s tough.
Smart was on local Atlanta tv this AM pleading his case about making the final four. Claiming GA was the best of the best and the committee should have an easy decision to make. He was pathetic, almost like begging a dad for forgiveness for not getting his daughter home before the agreed curfew. Had your team played better, you'd be 13-0 and have a better shot, but, you're 12-1, suck it up.
NO SEC team
Michigan - Texas - Washington - FSU
Michigan will win the National Championship
All this with due respect to Eric, who I think would want us all to remember him and simply march on. RIP my friend.
