ATHENS – Georgia’s coach Kirby Smart said he is proud of the resistance he has seen from his team since the loss at LSU, and he hopes it can be transferred to the Jacksonville field next Saturday.
“I think the children are much more robust than you give them credit for,” said Smart at his weekly Monday conference at Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall. “It’s the program leaders and the organization and coaches who have to get over it.”

Smart acknowledged the fact that this is a matchup of No. 7 (Georgia) against No. 9 (Florida), probably has no effect on the focus he has seen.
” Sometimes it’s hard to make them go after three days and you have to get spider webs, “says Smart,” but with a game like this, our guys are excited and I’m sure their guys are too. “ Bulldogs (6- 1, 4-1 SEC) won last year’s rivalry meeting with Gators (6-1, 4-1) in Jacksonville, 42-7, but Florida had won the previous three games and is 19-7 against UGA since the SEC was divided into division games 1992.
“Many of our guys have no winning record against them,” said Smart. “But I think more important than they know what is at stake for this game and they know this will be become a physical, hard fight. Two teams that are well coached and two talented teams. “
