Georgia continues to impress college football fans and media, and ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit is no different.
According to Herbstreit, not all the Bulldogs were happy after a 42-7 win over rival Florida last weekend — they wanted a shutout. That was particularly true of Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith.
“It’s just a team that’s on a mission right now. (Smith) has his blinders on,” Herbstreit said on his podcast with co-host Ian Fitzsimmons. “He’s not worried about 42-7. He’s worried about what (their) goals were. Clearly the goal was to shut them out.”
The Bulldogs are currently undefeated and have a win over CFP No. 3 Notre Dame in South Bend.
“I love to know that Georgia is in good hands when it comes to leadership of that team through a player’s perspective,” Herbstreit said. “We know about Kirby and what he’s trying to create there and he’s done it very, very quickly.”
Georgia faces South Carolina this weekend in Athens. Next weekend it gets its biggest test of the SEC schedule so far when the Bulldogs travel to Auburn.
“End of the day, Georgia’s heading in clearly a great direction,” Herbstreit said. “They are, right now, a juggernaut. It’s going to be tough for really anybody to match up with them.”
