The Georgia Bulldogs have a big week ahead of them as Early Signing Day is on Wednesday as they look to close another strong class. Before we get into too much signing day coverage, let’s cover a few strong topics from this weekend.
Kirk Herbstreit gave some insight into head coach Kirby Smart, one of the transfer Dawgs found a new home, and Georgia found out it didn’t win the Joe Moore Award.
It was a good weekend for the Dawgs, and now it’s time to hunker down and sign another recruiting class. The Dawgs will have an even better first half of the week, which makes this long wait until the semifinals a tad shorter.
The Georgia Bulldogs know where Bill Norton will transfer
Former Georgia defensive lineman Bill Norton didn’t take long to find his new team, as he announced on Sunday that Arizona would be his next home. Norton is the first Dawg to hit the transfer portal this year, and while that stings, it was for the best. He will have a better time competing for Arizona and proving himself there than staying another year at Georgia.
Norton came into Georgia as a four-star, and while it didn’t necessarily work out for the Dawgs, he will be much happier in Arizona. He deserves to go somewhere that offers a more significant role. Norton has the talent for a larger role, and now he gets that.
Kirk Herbstreit knows what Georgia Bulldogs’ coach Kirby Smart’s edge is.
The ESPN legend discussed the Dawgs’ head coach Kirby Smart during the Oregon State and Florida game, providing incredible insight into what Kirk Herbstreit thinks of Smart. He said that Smart is best at figuring out how to work his players’ minds, which is an interesting statement.
In today’s world, it isn’t easy to connect with 18-20-year-olds, but Smart has found a way to do just that. He relates to them in ways others can’t, and Smart shows them that genuine love. It’s important to find a way to connect, and Smart has, which obviously has paid off. The full article on Dawg Nation is great because Mike Griffeth goes into this quote more, but it’s one of the best things I’ve heard about Georgia’s head coach. That ability to relate is huge for these young men, and Smart does it well.
The Georgia Bulldogs just missed on winning Joe Moore Award.
Georgia has one of the best offensive lines, but they couldn’t beat out Michigan for the Joe Moore Award. The Wolverines have now won two years in a row, despite the Dawgs clearly being the better unit.
However, in the grand scheme of things, Georgia doesn’t really care about these individual awards. They have one goal in mind, and that is to win a national championship. Georgia knows how good its offensive line is and doesn’t need anyone else to think that because their results on the field prove it.
There are under two weeks until the semifinal, and Georgia will be ready for battle. The Dawgs have to get through the early signing period first, but that preparation for Ohio State is in full force.
