Certainly, ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum couldn̵7;t help but get in on the national conversation as the University of Georgia’s apparent problems in midfield reappeared in the limelight. After pointing out the Bulldogs’ struggles ahead of Saturday’s game against Florida, Finebaum reiterated his point after the bold defeat.
Kirby is smart need a star midfielder to win at the elite level and he’s got that in Justin Fieldsare running a campaign for monster juniors through three games at Ohio State.
“Right or wrong this question will appear soon and often. How did you do? Justin Fields out of your program, Kirby is smart? Two years ago, Kirby is smart is a backup for Jake Fromm, “Finebaum said on Sunday Sports Centre. “He played cautiously in the Florida-Georgia match. And the idea that Kirby was with Fromm made sense at the time. do you do that
“Because Georgia is likely to be number 1 in the country right now with Justin Fields is their midfielder. Instead, they’re done. They won’t be in the SEC’s title game, and hopes of winning another title are gone. “
Saturday’s defeat to Florida ended Georgia’s three-win streak in this streak. Midfield duo Stetson Bennett and Dwan Mathis combined to go 9 out of 29 in 112 yards, two touches of the ball and three interceptions against one of the SEC’s inconsistent units at the end of the pitch.
Fields left Georgia after the freshman season and enrolled in the State of Ohio in January 2019. He won Heisman’s finalist title in the first season and his name seems to come out. weeks when the Bulldogs’ match was unsuccessful.
Georgia no longer controls its destiny in the East after the defeat and the Bulldogs’ run as a league champion may be over.
“You know, I don’t make excuses. I don’t see that as a reason to worry, “Smart said after the game.” You’re going to create interest and write all kinds of things, and I respect that, that’s your job. But you know in the East SEC in the last 20 games, we won 19-1 until tonight. And you said it’s best.
“I told the team, this is the first time in the last round – I would say four seasons, because three plus one this season, so this is the fourth season – that every game they match. I played, every game we played we were really in control of our destiny. To be honest, right? We were in control of our own destiny until after the SEC championship, and this is the first time it hasn’t been. “
