The Daily Recap: Kirby Smart respects Jim Harbaugh’s coaching style

Here is the December 21 edition of The Daily Recap presented by JFQ Lending.

Respect for Harbaugh

The Orange Bowl will mark the first time that Smart Kirby and Jim Harbaugh will meet for a football match. Over the years, Smart said he admires the way Harbaugh’s play at Michigan approaches the game.

“I don’t think I’ve faced Jim before. He was in the NFL for a while, Stanford, I don’t think we crossed paths game-wise,” Smart said. “But I have a lot of respect for the way his team plays. They are physical. They like to club.

Smart said he can definitely identify with the physique Michigan plays with.

“I appreciate that physicality because you might be playing a game that comes down to last possession. There are times when you have to throw the ball to finish the game,” Smart said. with a lot of success this year. They’re also explosive, they can throw it. They’ve got two effective quarterbacks. They’re doing a good job.”

Injury Update

With 27 days between the SEC Championship and the Orange Bowl, Georgia has had plenty of time for its players to heal. This allowed security Christopher Smith (knee) and left tackle jamaree salyer (foot) to dramatically improve their health in preparation for Michigan.

“Chris and Jamaree have been practicing,” Smart said. “Chris was a bit more limited in terms of volume, but he trained every day. He did a great job.

Smart noted that the running back Kendall Milton (knee) should play.

While the receiver George Pickens (knee) continues to improve, Smart warned he won’t be 100 percent for the college football playoffs.

“We see him every day in training, and he’s working to get there, but he’s not there (100%). Nobody is,” Smart said. down to earth coming back from an ACL and coming back with the same speeds, confidence and breaks you usually would have. He continues to improve. »

Preparation for Hutchinson

Smart doesn’t believe anyone the Bulldogs have played before compares to Michigan defensive end Aidan Hutchinson. This season, Heisman Trophy finalist Hutchinson has 58 total tackles, 15.5 tackles for loss and 14 sacks.

“You measure a man by the way he punches and the physique and toughness and desire he has,” Smart said. “It’s obvious. We’ve spoken to our players a number of times about tension. Nothing casual, but there won’t be anything casual about this game. It’s going to be about tension and physicality, which he’s proud of. and does a terrific job.”

Rumors versus facts

Hoops: new arrivals are mobilizing

In Georgia’s 85-79 victory over West Carolina, the Bulldogs received significant contributions from Noah Baumann and Dalen Ridgnal. Ridgnal scored 10 points and Baumann had 11 rebounds.

Both were needed as Georgia continues to adapt to Jailyn Ingram out for the year with a torn ACL.

“We are a bit improvised at the moment. But to win the game, it doesn’t matter who we play against; it’s important that we find a way to win the game,” Crean said. “That’s what we need to do to gain confidence.”
