ATHENS — Georgia football coach Kirby Smart says the No. 8-ranked Bulldogs have plenty to work on during the bye week, so he doesn’t have much time to pay attention to what’s being said outside of his program.
Obviously much of the narrative in the wake of the 36-16 loss at No. 5-ranked LSU has centered on the quarterback play and the fluid nature of the substitution pattern between Jake Fromm and Justin Fields.
Smart said he doesn’t pay any attention to that on Tuesday night.
““I don’t know what’s being made (of it), that’s the thing,” Smart said. “Maybe you guys are making a big deal. It’s not to me. I don’t listen to that.
“The world we live in, we have to look at the field, we have to look at the practice, we’ve gotta look at what’s best for our team and whoever gives our team the best chance to win is what we’ll decide to do. I’m not going to be influenced by outside forces on who to play or what to do.”
Beat writers Mike Griffith and Chip Towers addressed the quarterback rotation and several other areas that Georgia football will address during the bye week.
One current players’ mother weighed in during the discussion about areas the team fell short and questions being answered on the Facebook Live presentation.
