Look on the Bright Side: Kirby Smart Quietly Sets National Coaching Record


As Georgia squandered its Number 1 ranking on Saturday afternoon, Kirby Smart quietly accomplished something that no other coach in the history of college football has done. 

Smart moved to an even .500 record against four of the most revered coaches in the modern era of college football. 

  • Auburn’s Gus Malzahn: Kirby Smart is 1-1 against Malzahn, who is no longer on the hot seat. 
  • Vanderbilt’s Derek Mason: Kirby Smart is 1-1 against Mason and his powerhouse Vanderbilt program. 
  • Tennessee’s Butch Jones: Kirby Smart is 1-1 against the not-yet-fired Jones. 
  • Florida’s Jim McElwain: Kirby Smart is 1-1 against the canned leader of the Gators. 

No other coach in America has managed to post a 4-4 record against what is collectively referred to as the SEC’s Fantastic Four, and the fact that Smart is exactly 1-1 against each worthy foe is flatout astounding. 

Keep it up, Kirby.
