Kirby Smart did not appear to be happy with the play-calling on Saturday after the Georgia offense stalled at the goal line in a key situation for the second week in a row.
Georgia running back D’Andre Swift was stuffed on second-and-goal from the Kentucky 1-yard line early in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Jake Fromm was also stopped on a quarterback sneak on third-and-goal. The Bulldogs had to settle for a field goal and to go up 31-10.
Smart consoled his offensive players as they came off the field, and appeared to say the failure was on him and the coaches. But after giving Fromm a slap on the helmet, he could be seen screaming something on his headset.

Georgia also got stopped in a crucial goal-line situation against Florida last week. For Smart, who takes pride in fielding a team that can run the ball and dominate the line of scrimmage, watching both of those sequences had to be frustrating.
