Georgia Bulldogs head coach Kirby Smart is a busy man in the offseason. He’s reeling in 4-star running backs with NFL comparisons, 300-pound defenders and 5-star linebackers in hopes of building on last year’s No. 1 recruiting class and getting UGA back to the College Football Playoff.
Smart probably makes hundreds of calls each day, and as we found out from social media not all of those calls are serious. Kirby participated in the “I’m Busy” FaceTime Challenge on TikTok and prank called a bunch of University of Georgia greats.
The 45-year-old couldn’t help himself from laughing like a little kid.
Kirby Smart Prank Calls UGA Greats
The challenge is simple. Call someone on FaceTime and then say you’re busy and you have to call them back (confusing them into thinking they called you). Record the reaction and let it blow up on social media.
Smart first calls former Georgia and current Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb before telling him “sorry, I gotta run. I’ll holler at you.”
Current players like James Cook and Jordan Davis fell victim to Smart’s antics.
The head coach dials up College Football Hall-of-Famer and ESPN College GameDay host David Pollack, who looks confused as heck.
“What’s up? Hey listen, I can’t talk right now,” Smart says to Pollack.
The best reaction may have come from former star defensive back Richard LeCounte.
“What happened?” LeCounte says with a baffled look. “Why’d you call me and tell me you gotta go?”
Smart keeps things loose with his current and former players. Maybe that’s why Georgia has found so much success under him.
