Kirby Smart’s Postgame Presser – Georgia vs. Missouri 2023

On the environment inside Sanford Stadium and being back home…  

“It was an incredible atmosphere. Our fans were awesome and they had a major impact on the game. They actually hurt us two times because they made the guy snap the ball early and he threw fades on fourth down when they didn’t snap the ball. I think we would have covered him better if they didn’t snap the ball early, but the center couldn’t hear the  clap, so he just snapped the ball early and we gave up back center fades. But the crowd was incredible, had a lot of false starts on them. I thought we played really hard as a team. I thought we did not start the second half well on defense, luckily, we held them to a field goal.” 





On the offensive efficiency in the second half… 

“That was huge. They have a really good defense. They have big defensive guys up front. They played really hard and  physical. They do a great job with their defensive packages. I thought they controlled our run game more than anybody has in the last couple of weeks and that frustrated us. Luckily, we have a good enough passing arsenal where we can  throw it around some.” 

On his assessment of the defense… 





“I thought (Glenn) Schumann did a good job pitching to them. They’re hard to defend, they do some different run game  things that frustrated us. I don’t think we played really well. We played well when we had to, we had some big stops. The red area probably won this game for us. Those stops are big.”

On how important the ‘next play mentality’ was in the second half… 

“I mean, it’s a next play mentality always, next drive mentality, however you want to put it. When we went into halfime,  we knew that we were going to be good when we came out and we ended up executing.” 

On the ability for this team to play from behind and win… 

“We are a very composed team, and we are resilient. And I think we’ve shown that at this point in the season. We stand  on that. Those are some of our four pillars, and we have resiliency, toughness, connection — you’ve heard them all — but those are things that we stand on. When you practice those type of things, they end up showing up in games.”
