Kirby Smart is in his 4th season as the Georgia Bulldogs football coach, his dream job, but he still has to answer to a higher power when it comes to his actions. And after an emotional win over "friendly" rival Auburn 21-14 Saturday night to help seal the SEC East division Kirby let out some words that would get himself in trouble with his significant other: his wife.
Look we have all been there. I can speak for most if not all married men that I have said a lot of stupid shit during my now 11 years of marriage bliss. It just comes with the territory. We are men after all. And Kirby is a country boy from Bainbridge, GA who is the son of a high school football coach so you can only imagine the colorful language he heard growing up. It comes with the territory. But it still doesn't make it right. So Kirby did the honorable thing and apologized to his wife that night when he got home.
“I would like to apologize for something I said after the game Saturday night,” Smart said at his regular press conference on Monday. “That’s not indicative of who I want to be and what I stand for. You know you messed up when you get home to your wife and she’s more upset than you won the game, she’s more upset with something you said. It’s not what I represent. It’s not the kind of behavior I want to have. I want to say to the Dawg fans out there and everybody, I’m going to try to handle that a lot better. It was an emotional win and I was very emotional in that, got to do a better job of that.”
Good for Kirby taking one for the team. Happy wife happy life after all. But don't expect Kirby to dial down the "f bombs" on the practice field or on game days while raging on the sidelines. Football coaches are not choir boys. They are meant to whip 18-22 year-old boys into men and sometimes the only way to get their attention is by using the word FUCK.
In fact I think the "HOW BOUT THEM FUCKING DAWGS!" is the new 2019 team motto. Probably should put that on some tees right? Start selling them and all. Well good news is our boys over at ClassicGeorgia have done just that.
