Georgia Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smart cost his team the game. He won’t admit it, but a critical play late in the game cost.
The Bulldogs were defeated by the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday night. The Tide won 35-28 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia.
The game was tied at 28 all. And the Tide was without their potentially-winning Heisman Trophy quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. He had left in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury.
On a drive that began with 5:19 left in the game, Justin Fields rushed for a one-yard gain. Jake Fromme then hit D’Andre Swift for a 26-yard gain.
Following the completion, Elijah Holyfield rushed for a one-yard loss. Fromm then threw back-to-back incomplete passes.
Then, on a very gutsy decision, Kirby and his coaching staff decided to fake it on 4th and 11 instead of punting it. Fields rushed for two yards up the middle and turned the ball over at the 50-yard-line.
Smart was outsmarted on this decision. He’s going to have to second guess this decision for a very long-time.
Shortly after this play — which is going to be criticized for a long-time — Tide quarterback Jalen Hurts marched his team down the field. He then scored the game-winning touchdown on a 15-yard rushing touchdown at 1:15 left in the game.
With the loss, the Bulldogs ended any potential hope of them making the College Football Playoff now.
