    I love it! Coach Smart knows what he is doing and will have the dawgs ready to compete at a high level come September.

    @MikeGriffith thanks for this. It’s really great to see how those young men are being mentored.

    Kirby Smart has a genius for making his players the best that they can be. Now, he's absorbing the culture of the All Blacks who are a standard all by themselves. No Rugby team has won more games or championships than they. Georgia is the standard in college football now and they are getting better every year. Kirby is cultivating an attitude that we are the hunters never the hunted, and this is what separates us from the pack. I'm proud to be a Bulldawg!!!

    As an adopted New Zealander (moved here 28 years ago) I am pleased to see rugby get some attention in the US! As an aside, Dabo Swinney talked about the All Blacks a few years after meeting their coach and reading his book...

    IMO...A Coach can't "make" anybody, do anything.

    The first step, is finding the right people,..."Coaches & Players"...with a "like-mindset". "Qualified" People, determined and willing to submit to being coached and molded, in order to achieve Greatness...or, as close to it as they can possibly get. And, you have to find 20 or 30 new ones...every year.

    Kirby Smart has proven to be, among the "absolute best", at identifying that trait and facilitating and nurturing it's growth and development within the organization. He has wayyy more "hits", than "misses"...which is why he doesn't "sweat it", when a couple of former 5 star players decide to transfer...."UGA's not for Everybody"...and Everybody is not for UGA.

    If you have some natural talent...and you're willing to "eat off the floor" to get better...you have a strong burning desire, to "be the best"...you value your time in the Classroom...General Smart is looking for a Few Good Men. Lol

    Great Coach...Great Organization...Great People!!! Go on ahead Dawgs...do your thing. UGA is redefining some "terms & narratives", and they're just getting started.
