ATHENS - The Georgia Bulldogs are about to have a massive next several weeks on the recruiting trail.

I mean, MASSIVE.

But before the recruiting grind starts, Georgia head coach Kirby Smart took a little time off this month. He didn’t take a trip to Italy like Nick Saban did, but he did play some golf this week.

At the Regions Tradition pro-am, Kirby Smart jumped on the “Having a Coke” podcast where he spoke about Steston Bennett and the Rams, how long he wants to coach, drinking wine, playing pickleball, watching Succession and much more.

The first question Smart was asked was about Bennett, his two-time national championship winning quarterback, who was selected by the Los Angeles Rams in the 4th round of April’s 2023 NFL Draft.

“He’s talented”, Smart said about Bennett. “He’s a great athlete. I think he really fits their scheme. I think Sean (McVay) liked him playing in Todd Monken’s system. I think there are a lot of similarities there. He loves Stafford and gets to learn from one of the best. I don’t think you could find a better fit for him.”

With Stafford and Bennett on the roster, the L.A Rams have +650 odds to win the NFC West in 2023 according to FanDuel.

Smart was then asked an intriguing question that Georgia fans are dying to know.

How much longer do you have in you?

“I don’t know”, Smart said with a smile. “It depends on how this game goes. 20, 30, 40 years maybe”.

Could you imagine Kirby Smart coaching the Bulldogs in 2063?

Sounds crazy this second, but it doesn’t sound like Kirby Smart is messing around.
