Kirby Smart was his usual fiery self as he stepped to the podium following a disheartening 34-31 loss to Tennessee. Smart pointed out that his team practices the final play, Hail Mary defense every Thursday in practice. Usually they execute it well. On Saturday, not so much.
Smart also singled out the fans for creating a great atmosphere, Tennessee for being a disciplined, senior-laden team, and his special teams for not rising to the challenge of a Tennessee team that "just outcompeted" them. As Smart notes however "you're only a week away" in the SEC from your next tough game, in this case South Carolina. Tomorrow, the 'Dawgs go back to work. You can see more of Smart’s comments below.
Until later . . .
