What Kirby Smart said following Georgia's loss to LSU
It wasn’t simply the missed fake field goal attempt, of the play of QB Jake Fromm and whether he should have been pulled sooner.
Georgia coach Kirby Smart said there were plenty of mistakes to go around. Georgia had three turnovers in its first six games, and had four against LSU — two fumbles and two interceptions.
“We didn’t play our best game,” Smart said. “You have to give LSU credit. They are a great football team. We didn’t do well against their hurry up offense, which caused us to not be able to play as many guys as we norally do. They did a great job of mixing up their play calls with run and pass. Offensively, we had a drought and they capitalized. We didn’t come out physical today. We just have to execute better and get better overall.”
Georgia coach Kirby Smart: “We have not gotten out of this team what we should get out of them, and that’s on me as the leader, us as the coaches and then all the players got to buy into that.”

Kirby Smart on Fromm vs Fields. "It's easy to question it now & we'll look at just like everyone else…We'll always go with the guy that we think gives us the best chance to win. But let's not pin mistakes on guy tonight. There were plenty of mistakes to go around." pic.twitter.com/lVuxrK0lkF
