Georgia fans upset with Kirby Smart after questionable decisions in loss to South Carolina
Georgia fans weren’t happy with Kirby Smart on Saturday, as several questionable decisions seemed to hurt the Bulldogs in a loss to South Carolina.
Fans booed some of the play-calling earlier in the game, when Georgia was running the ball too much for those watching. Then, the Dawgs opted to run another play instead of giving K Rodrigo Blankenship a chance to kick a long field goal for the win.
In overtime, things didn’t go the Dawgs’ way either, and after the game, fans took to Twitter to question their coach. As you can see below, there were quite a few comparisons to former Georgia coach Mark Richt:
Kirby is Richt 2.0 change my mind

I’m just going to say it. Kirby is a horrible coach. Great recruiter but can’t coach in big game situations.

Yo Auburn, I would consider using your backup qb when you play Georgia in a few weeks; Kirby is now 0-3 against backups. pic.twitter.com/jRFHHqzZXD

It wouldn’t be Georgia football if Kirby and Fromm didn’t let us down at least once

3rd year in a row Kirby has lost a game like this. Inexcusable. We didn't look prepared on offense we ran the ball on first and second down pretty much every time & had to make it up on third down every drive. Kirby looking alot like Richt to me

Can Georgia bounce back from this loss? We’ll find out starting next week, when the Bulldogs host Kentucky for homecoming.
