What’s Your Selling Point?

Heard an entertaining story this morning at breakfast about Coach Kirby Smart. It appears that last week he was driving through south GA headed to Rochelle to visit with Nick Marshall when a trooper pulled him over for doing 85 in a 55 outside of Cordele.

The trooper, being a big Bulldog fan and a fan of college football in general, recognized Kirby immediately. The Bama gear probably helped, but what really sealed the deal was the fact that he recognized Kirby from his playing days in the SW corner of the state. Apparently they had played high school ball against one another.

Long story short, Smart asked if the guy could help him out. The trooper told him he wasn’t sure, since 85 in a 55 would qualify him as a super speeder. He asked if Kirby was headed to visit Nick Marshall, to which Smart said he was. Thinking fast, the trooper said he’d help CKS out if he’d do one thing. He asked Kirby to get out of the vehicle, so he did. Kirby was led to the patrol car and was ordered to look into the camera and say “Go Dawgs!” The story I was told was that Smart even gave a few barks.

I wish we could find this on video, but that will probably never surface. However, it is troopers like this guy who make me proud to be a Dawg. If it were me in Florida, I’d pay the ticket before ever giving the Gator chomp. Thanks for selling out Kirby, you made my day. I hope CTG wouldn’t do the same.

Go Dawgs!

    GA State Troopers are a loyal bunch! That would rank up there higher than the Nat’l tv fist bump behind OBCs back.

    I would have thought he would have just used that fat new $750,000 per year salary to pay the ticket. Or just write off and let Daddy Nick pay for it…

      And since he used Georgia to get the raise, we should have gotten some of it back. A negotiating fee, if you will.
