Georgia Coach Kirby Smart spoke in the SEC about the question of how to defeat Alabama, but the earlier Crimson Tide Jam Damien Harris had his own joke answer, as Smarts Quote became viral.
Smart posed a question during his panel session on the SEC Media Days on how Georgia may cross the border against Alabama .
Right? "Smart joked. "That's part of the plan."
The comment refers to the last two meetings of the teams. Jalen Hurts led Alabama to a comeback victory in last year's SEC Championship game. Real freshman Tua Tagovailoa did the same against Georgia in the national title fight against Georgia.
Harris, a team captain and all-conference player who competed last season, was immediately back on social media.

Mac Jones plans to support Tagovailoa this season. Jones does not have the same hype as Tagovailoa or Hurts like an Alabama quarterback, but should be a reliable player when requested by Nick Saban (19459007). He was a three-star recruit from 247 Sports Composite from Jacksonville, Florida, the Bolles School.
According to Smarts commentary, the inability of a former Saban assistant to beat Alabama is well known. Smart gave a real answer to future potential struggles between Alabama and Georgia. The two are projected winners of their divisions, which could mean another clash in the SEC championship.
"They are doing a great job, and we are not yet as far as we need it," said Smart. "To be honest, much of it goes to me here. We have to finish the game better and keep track.
"And that is awarded to them because they have a good football program." They have won many football games and are a physical team. I think we have shown that we can keep up with this physicality. We have not finished this physical condition yet, but we are not being pushed around out there, and that's part of the deal against Alabama: you have to be able to play physically.
Harris finished his Alabama career as a two-time national champion with 3,070 runways and 26 touchdowns. The New England Patriots chose Harris in the third round of the NFL draft, where he ironically joins a field that includes Georgia star Sony Michel.
"I think there's no other group where you can watch the two week and do not know where the ball goes," said NFL analyst Nate Burleson. Sony Michel
