Georgia Bulldogs at SEC Media Days
BULLDOGS KICKED OFF DAY TWO OF SEC MEDIA DAYS FROM ATLANTA
The Georgia Bulldogs Took the podium at SEC Media days on Tuesday to discuss the upcoming season. Many questions circled around the devastating final play of the national championship game against Alabama. For many Bulldogs players, it was something to learn from.
“The last play doesn’t really sting at all, it’s just going back and looking at things you could have done and we have a chip on our shoulder now,” said J.R Reed.
The Bulldogs are projected to be back in Mercedes-Benz Stadium for the SEC Championship and head coach Kirby Smart thinks high expectations are a good thing.
“We don’t run from pressure, pressure is a privilege and that’s the way we look at it,” Says Smart. “We’ve earned the right to have pressure and expectations on our program”
Smart also took some time to discuss Jake Fromm’s broken left hand that he suffered in a “freak lake accident.”
“I don’t know if you call them lake mishaps, I mean they’re kids being kids,” Says Smart. “The difference is you know about them. Take that 10 years ago, 15 years ago, 20 years ago, and I’m at the University of Georgia and there’s 7 of us that all room together and we’re all out on the water doing something, none of ya’ll would know. So why do you all know? Because of social media, that’s the only difference. We’re acting like this is a big deal, it’s only a big deal because you know about it, things like this happen all the time that you don’t know about”
The Georgia Bulldogs kick off their season from home on September 1st against Austin Peay.
