Kirby Smart Instills “Joyless Murderball” in 2021 Georgia Bulldogs
Georgia head football coach Kirby Smart has some major passion. Smart was a high energy safety for the Georgia Bulldogs and has carried that hard-hitting attitude into his coaching career.
Smart has led his Georgia Bulldogs to the No. 1 overall spot in all the major polls while steamrolling teams on the way to a 10-0 record and a spot in the SEC Championship.
Georgia's closest game in 2021 has been a 17-point win against Kentucky and a lot of the blowouts can be credited to Smart's cutthroat competitiveness.
Audio has surfaced from the locker room at halftime during the Georgia and Florida game revealing Smart encouraging his team while using colorful language. The Bulldogs were already winning 24-0 when Smart dropped his dirty diatribe meant to inspire a strong second half effort. He's known the right buttons to push as Georgia went on to win 34-7.
WARNING: VIDEO CONTAINS VULGAR LANGUAGE
Does this remind anyone of the classic Nick Saban, "Make his ass quit" video?
Does Smart have the secret sauce as his teams have been playing hard for 60-minutes game-in and game-out?
When has the 2021 Alabama Crimson Tide put on a 60-minute effort? Perhaps in only three games, Alabama defeated Mississippi State, Southern Miss and New Mexico State in the "Joyless Murderball" fashion we've all come to know and love.
The Bulldogs have been "Joyless Murderball" personified in 2021, Georgia's average margin of victory is 31.1 points per game.
An Alabama win over Arkansas this weekend will set up a Titanic matchup in the SEC Championship game between Georgia and Alabama. Smart is 0-4 against Alabama while at the helm for Georgia but his 2021 squad looks to be the team to break that streak and potentially eliminate the Crimson Tide from playoff contention.
