“After one season plenty of questions remain about Smart and whether or not he can elevate Georgia in the national conversation.” Athlon Sports Steven Lassan ranking Kirby # 65 head coach today.
After Kirby loses 20 STARTERS here at UGA after this 2017 season 2018 will be particularly PAINFUL for Kirby so he must make hay 2017 with all this talent. Kirby certainly will lead the nation in NFL Draft Picks after this 2017 season. Recruiting and Defense is ONLY part of the job of being head coach. There are 2 more parts OFFENSE and SPECIAL TEAMS plus some press meetings Kirby needs to improve at as well.
Kirby did not help himself having to admit that he himself said he did NOT DO WELL at ALL 2016. And of course it is hard to argue that point with Kirby with all this talent he has. Still 2017 promises to be SEC Championship with the Top 5 overall talent in the nation 2017 for Kirby this year.
If Kirby does NOT PLAY all this talent 2017 like Kirby did NOT 2016 then 2018 will be the end for Kirby because if you can’t win with all this talent then you have no business being coach. I think Kirby will be ok though because I think Kirby will win 2017 SEC Championship and go better than 10-4. Now next year 2018 is all together a lesser year than 2017 no matter what Kirby does 2017.
