Five Questions with Georgia football coach Kirby Smart


Question -  With a veteran defense and running backs does that mean you won't have to put a lot on the shoulders of your young quarterback, Jacob Eason?

Kirby Smart - I think when you play quarterback in the SEC, there's no security blankets for that. You'll go up to some of the most formidable defenses in the country. Certainly happy to have those rushers back, but we have to create space for those guys and run the ball better, be more productive so we can open up the passing game. He needs that help, and Jacob has been a guy that has openly admitted he's super happy to have Nick Chubb and Sony Michel coming back. We have other backs. And I hope Jacob can open up that part of the offense and be able to expand it and open some things for Nick and Sony.
