Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs have been crowned SEC Champions after a twelve year drought. After an up-and-down debut season in 2016, Smart led the team to a 12-1 record in the 2017 season, losing once to Auburn. The Bulldogs made headlines when they won the SEC Champions and made Kirby Smart the SEC coach of the year. Now they’re off to something greater, the College Football Playoffs.

After Georgia’s below average season last year, no one really believed in their full potential or saw how great they could really be. The UGA players and coaching staff set out to prove last year was a fluke. Coach Smart, speaking in an interview after the win, explained why they won and what made them so strong, “We played with composure and physicality and that’s all there is to it. We also had the great support of the fans and that made us stronger. We lost to Auburn the first time around, so we were ready for more.”

We can all see now that the Bulldogs didn’t care who did or did not believe in them. They believed in themselves. With the support of fans, Coach Smart and staff, and each other, they made it to the top of the SEC after 12 years of failure. Georgia really can say that they are ready for more while heading to the College Football Playoffs.
