Georgia is sitting at 7-0 on the season and ranked No. 1 in the polls.

Given that there’s not a ranked opponent left on the schedule, many expect the Bulldogs to cruise through their final 5 games and into the SEC championship game at 12-0 and still ranked No. 1.

Georgia coach Kirby Smart said Wednesday that nobody associated with his program is concerned about rankings.

“We don’t address it as far as the ranking,” Smart said during the SEC coaches teleconference. “What we address is our strength and weaknesses. … Why have we had success and why have we struggled in some areas and what can we do about those? … There’s not been a lot of conversation about the rankings.”

Still, most consider the Bulldogs to be the clear favorite to win a national championship this season, and Smart did address the things he thinks are imperative when it comes to building a championship team.

“Infrastructure, in terms of personnel, is key. … It takes a village,” Smart said. “We’ve been pretty sustainable in terms of keeping guys. Number 2 is recruiting good players and demanding excellence out of them. … Holding them to a standard is important. Discipline within our program is important. … We really try to hone in with that with our players. It’s the little things you do right week to week.”

Smart also said that a key to this year’s success has been that he and his staff love this group and what they bring each and every day.

“The joy with which they come to practice, the joy we have coaching them,” Smart added. “… We feel as a coaching staff we’re connected to them. It keeps the culture positive.”

The Bulldogs are off this week, but they will travel to Jacksonville for their annual rivalry game with Florida on October 30.

To this point, however, Smart said his team hasn’t spent too much time thinking about the Gators and their dual-quarterback system. Rather, the Bulldogs are focused on themselves.

“We just have not really started preparation on Florida,” Smart said. “We’ve really been focused on trying to get better at things we can do better. We’ll start heading that direction this afternoon and tomorrow. I don’t control who starts. They have some similarities. … Emory’s from our state, so we’ve seen him play. … We’ll have to have a plan for both.”
