The Hammer Always Wins

August 6, 2018


ATHENS - The phone conversation I had with the former offensive lineman midway through the 2016 season was pretty matter of fact. 

I was calling former UGA players, and asking them the week after the 17-16 loss to Vanderbilt their overall thoughts about what Kirby Smart and company were doing. This offensive lineman explained that it was going to be difficult for the Bulldogs to have success that year with the way style of play they were employing. 

The line I remember most was: 

“With that offensive line?”

You have to give Kirby and crew credit for not sacrificing what they believed (and still believe) in order to win at the time.
