Georgia coach Kirby Smart explained Monday the reasons for the angry exchange into his headset that was caught by TV cameras during the win Saturday in Lexington, Ky.


Smart yelled into his headset after his offense was stuffed on third-and-goal by Kentucky. The Bulldogs settled for a field goal to increase their lead, making the score 31-10.

“I think we worked really hard on it last week and that’s probably the most frustrating thing is that we didn’t overcome the obstacles we had previously,” Smart said. “And it has nothing to really do with play calling. It’s not the maddest I’ve ever been. I was more disappointed in some of the organizational things, not necessarily what we did.”

Georgia went on to win 34-17 and clinch the SEC East title. The Bulldogs play Auburn Saturday (7 p.m. News 95.5 and AM-750 WSB) at Sanford Stadium.
