Some of UGA’s head coaches for sports got together to do a public-service video for the school’s students, as the school transitions to online learning this week to finish out the spring semester (see video at bottom).
Football coach Kirby Smart finished one-minute video by saying, “Remember this: Stay safe, attack the day, and hunker down! Go Dawgs!”
Several other coaches appeared in the video, which was released by the Twitter account of UGA Athletics on Sunday. They include baseball coach Scott Stricklin, women’s basketball coach Joni Taylor, gymnastics coach Courtney Kupets-Carter, and men’s basketball coach Tom Crean. There was also a surprise appearance from Scott Sinclair, the Director of Strength and Conditioning for the Bulldogs’ football program.
“We’re living in a different world because what’s happened over the past couple of weeks,” Stricklin said, to open up the video.
Kupets-Carter added, “One thing that hasn’t changed is that you’re still a Georgia Bulldog, no matter where you are.”
Some advice about online classes from the video, directed at current UGA students: Check your school email often, stay in touch with your instructors, and don’t forget about your upcoming virtual advisor appointments (to register for future classes).
In the video, the coaches appeared to be keeping a safe “social distance” from one another, taping from different locations — mostly from home.
It’s time to hunker down and finish the semester strong. We’re all in this together.
