Kirby Smart: ‘It’s the Georgia-Florida game to me’
Though no longer titled “The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party,” most fans still refer to the Georgia-Florida game as such.
During Wednesday’s SEC coaches media teleconference, Kirby Smart was asked what he thinks the game should be called.
“I’ll be honest with you. I don’t get into that part of it. That’s not really for me to concern ourselves with,” Smart said Wednesday when asked about it on the SEC coaches media teleconference. “Our No. 1 objective is to play our best game, our best football. It’s a very unique setting. And I think that’s awesome.”
Growing up, Smart watched and eventually played in the game when it was called the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. Now, however, the SEC, Georgia, Florida and CBS have all agreed to distance themselves from that name.
“But as far as what they call it, it’s the Georgia-Florida game to me,” Smart said.
