Head coach Kirby Smart as Jedi Master Yoda

Finding the perfect fit for Georgia football head coach Kirby Smart was the most challenging part of this list. Others came easy, but who would be the right fit for Smart? After much thought, it has to be Jedi Master Yoda because now that Smart has defeated his mentor, he is the master.

He took the knowledge he learned throughout the years and grew from it. The best teachers continue to learn because that is how they improve.

Yoda is one of the best Jedi ever and was a great teacher. He taught Luke Skywalker, Anakin, Qui-Gon Jinn, and many others.

Smart is wise beyond his years, which reminds us a lot of Yoda and how it took centuries for him to learn all of the stuff he did.

He is the ultimate master for Georgia football, and when most think about the ultimate Jedi master, it’s Yoda. Smart trained under Saban for 11 years, and Yoda trained in the Jedi ways for 800 years — similar, right?

Yoda can make people understand that it doesn’t matter about their size or outside appearance but what is inside because the power of work ethic and learning is far more powerful.

Not to mention Yoda and Smart always have a great quote to give.

One of our all-time favorites from Smart is, “you’re either elite or your not.” Yoda gave us the incredible “Do or do not. There is no try.”

Similar in thought and context, so it’s perfection that we cast Smart as Yoda.
