Kirby Smart’s Postgame Presser – Georgia vs. Florida

On today’s game and the win against Florida … 

“There was great excitement, great energy. Our fans really impacted the game. They helped us get  them for a few offsides. The turnovers were the difference in the game. We had a few, too, but theirs  were in their territory, and that was probably the biggest difference in the game.” 





On how well the running backs played today … 

“They ran really tough. We are trying to get Kenny (McIntosh) back all the way healthy, but Zamir  (White) and James (Cook) took it over. They did a really good job with really physical runs. We did a  good job upfront running the counter, and I am really proud of the way those guys played.” 

On Stetson Bennett and his resiliency … 





“He does a really good job on some plays, and then you are holding your breath when he holds the  ball. He has to make good decisions down the field. We can’t give the ball away. When it is not there  – we are pretty good on the next down, so let’s play for the next down and not worry about that  play. Making good decisions can be helpful with that. His legs and mobility were a big part of the  game plan and he made two really good plays with his feet.” 

On Georgia’s defense and the sequence right before the half … “That changed the game. That momentum right before the half was just huge. It is what our guys do  – they are havoc guys that cause problems, frustrate the quarterback, and try to find different ways  to affect the quarterback. Those turnovers are so big.”
