Kirby Smart was encouraged by his defense, perhaps for the first time this spring, during the last scrimmage. Of course, that means the offense becomes a concern.
“I think you’re always in wait-and-see mode as a coach because you’re trying to get better. I think we have improved some things but we have some things we have to improve on.”
“We have got to be able to run the ball consistently better and we did that early in the spring. But I can’t say that we did it the whole time today (last Saturday’s scrimmage). There was times when we were inept at running it and we didn’t get much movement – it started to be flashbacks. We’ve got to be able to do that. We’ve got to be creative and get the ball to playmakers in space and allow them to do things. We got some plays to do that with.”
“I think Jacob, specifically, has taken good strides, but he has to continue to make good decisions and get the ball in the right spot.”
Let’s hope none of us have flashbacks to the 2016 run game next Saturday.
