What Georgia football coach Kirby Smart said about Notre Dame
Kirby Smart on Notre Dame: “We’re on to Notre Dame. I’m excited for this opportunity. I think it’s a great game to have, non-conference game. You play at home and a school with such a tradition as Notre Dame. Looking forward to the opportunity. I know a lot of Georgia fans have had this one marked on the schedule for a long time. So have a lot of Notre Dame fans. We’re excited to get the opportunity. They’ve got a really good football team. Got a lot of respect for Coach (Brian) Kelly and the job he’s done and what he’s built there, and their staff actually is one of the best staffs in the country. So good football players, and it should be a great opportunity for both teams.”
Kirby Smart on the 2017 Notre Dame game has changed the Georgia program: “I think it’s a little bit of both. I mean it was giving our kids an opportunity to perform at a high level, and that was a really good football team. We didn’t play perfect. They didn’t play perfect. It was a hard-fought game. Both teams got better by playing that game, and that was two good football teams. We were a good football team last year. They were a good football team last year. And we both have good football programs. We recruit at a high level. We both have really good academics, and I think both programs are here to stay.”
Kirby Smart on the Notre Dame defensive line: “Well, I don’t know anybody we’ve played recently that is like them on the defensive line. They have superior size and speed combination. They’ve got really good edge players. Their guys can get off the edge and rush really well. They do a tremendous job. Their guys can move around, just athletic. They’re very multiple in what they do and they’re disruptive. So I can’t really compare them to anybody that we’ve played thus far up front. Maybe some individuals that we’ve played up front, but not as a whole as a group. They do a great job, and they create a lot of issues for you with their movement and their pressure package. They’re really aggressive. We know they’re going to score points offensively.”
Kirby Smart on managing the high number of recruits for Georgia football-Notre Dame: “It doesn’t change for us, guys. I’m going to be honest with you. I think that y’all like… We’re going to recruit that kids that come, the great group of prospects that come and we’re going to entertain them. We’re going to do a good job spending time with them because we’ve got more of the day to do that. I’m very thankful that we’ve got this opportunity because we’ve got a lot of national attention and it’s an attractive game that people want to come to. So we’re looking forward to that, but we’re going to do what we do.”
