Throughout last season, Kirby Smart would closely observe each position group during practice. He would spend a significantly longer amount of time with the outside linebackers due to the position’s youth.
Smart would find an issue with the technique of Adam Anderson, Brenton Cox or another newcomer. Suddenly, position coach Dan Lanning would find himself with another source of assistance.
“If you want to set the edge, you have to be a big boy,” Smart yelled toward Cox in a practice prior to the season.
There will be many more rants of similar demeanor from Smart, and that’s a sure statement given the head coach’s fiery quality.
