Kirby Smart Postgame Press Conference: Georgia vs. Tennessee 2022

On the key to the amount of sacks on Hendon Hooker… 

“The players. Coach Schumann, Muschamp, Scott, every defensive coach sold the plan  individually to their players. The players had to unselfishly buy into the plan because the  plan included not rushing up the field, not running past the quarterbacks level, pushing  the pocket. When you have guys like Jalen Carter that bought into the plan. We wanted  him to be uncomfortable in the pocket and our kids did that.” 

On the 75-yard punt that went to the one yard line… 





“That was huge. I told him, I said, ‘I don’t know if you practiced that in Australia, making  that ball curve to the sidelines like a boomerang.’ It just kept going more and more  sideways. What an incredible kick and a momentum swing. It was really a 3-4 point  swing because it swung us there, we end up getting the sack, we hold them and get the  ball at the 35-yard line. It was huge.” 

On the offensive line being physical and dominant… 

“I thought we came out and ran the ball really well. We actually ran it better early than  we did later in the game. Which usually is not our MO, we wear people down. The threat  of the pass, the perimeter run, and some of the shots we took downfield. I thought the  Arian (Smith) shot early loosened them up. Where we struggled, is explosive  outside. We need Arian to come to life.”
