re: Does Kirby’s seat start to heat up with another loss in 2020?
No way. What Kirby needs to avoid at all cost is another QB debacle like he experienced twice now. This season is headed nowhere so why not play Beck. Mathis is gonna be a bust and Bennett has had his day in the sun. The kid from USC has gotta be rethinking his cross country decision. Give Beck some games, have a QB that has some game experience awaiting the new guy on the block.

It should already be (at least) warm.

Eason was going to save Richt. Fields/Mathis/Newman/Fields/Beck were all the answers at one time....
but past experience indicates that he will win 9-10 games a season and maybe a bowl game at UGA and come up just shy of expectations.


Perhaps expectations need to be tempered and be a bit more reasonable.

It could be announced tomorrow that Stephen Hawking - current condition - was going to be an incoming freshman quarterback, and more than a few people would still expect a title out of him.

Nope, he has done too well for a warm seat. It’s still comfortable.

Yep, like him or not, Kirby is the best coach we have ever had due to his recruiting success alone.
Richt had a good first 5 years but only because Saban wasn't dominating and the rest of the SEC was down.

Kirby can win a NC if he can maintain the same level of recruiting, keep a good OC like Monken and let the OC do his job without interference. Kirby knows how to build a good defense; we just need an equally good wide-open offense which is exactly what Saban has done at Bama.

With all the injuries and not having a QB in an All-SEC schedule, he's not on the hot seat with another loss. Honestly he's one hotshot QB away from having us contending for another NC.



I think it is safe to say that most CFB teams with the resources UGA has is one hot shot QB away from contending for a NC. There is no indication that should Smart land said hot shot QB he would recognize that hot shot QB and, if he did, would utilize him appropriately. The jury ain't out on this but they are leaning that way given the evidence of the last 5 years.

Clemson is a good example. That Freshman filling in for Lawrence is as good as anyone Smart has had at QB and the rest of the talent level is on par or slightly ahead of UGA. They are 1-1 with that level of QB play. Alabama, Florida, Texas AM, Ohio State, all have a hot shot QB playing at a high level. Their resources are similar to those of UGA. They are all still in the NC picture. UGA is not. There is no program with the resources UGA has who aint a hot shot QB away from contending. But you gotta get that QB and coach him up and utilize his talents. Smart has not done a good job of this given the body of evidence. He may yet. Time will tell....

He knows better than anyone he fricked up on the Fields situation pretty hard. He did his due diligence in the off-season to bring in a transfer who ended up fricking us all over. I think we can agree after yesterday he made the right call starting Stet over Mathis. This means either JT is still injured or he is a complete dumpster fire. I'm going to wait to see how the next season or 2 of offensive talent plays out before calling it. Kirby is the best we can do at this point anyway. Even circling around the thought of a new coach is a waste of time


There is no better coach that Smart for UGA currently. May never be. Smart is excellent. He just has not, to this point, been good enough. There are 129 teams at least each year who do not win a natty. We are one of them and have been forever, with the exception of one year, though we claim 2, in what, 130 years? Smart came close to being good enough in 2017. He may well do so again....I think it is clear, however, that our dreams of winning 2 or 3 natty's over a 5-10 year span, unrealistic to begin with, are now clearly unrealistic. We win one, by our own estimation, once every 65 years or so. It is who we are.

Smarts good defenses get run out of the stadium more often than not against good offenses. We have never had a better defense than the one we have this year...few teams have. It has looked stellar against teams who cant move the ball but Alabama and Florida both ran them out of the stadium. LSU did it last year and the year before. Auburn came close in to doing it in 2017.

I know, I know, injuries etc. Injuries happen. Strange that they don't impact the programs we like to see ourselves as comparable to in the same manner. Could be because we aren't comparable.

You should try watching other teams play. Football has changed. Bama gave up 48 in a game this year. Clemson just gave up 47. Ohio state gave up 49 to Purdue recently, maybe more vs Iowa. LSU gave up 41 last hear. Florida gave up 41 this year. Funny how you missed those games.
