During an interview on ESPN after the game, Head Coach Kirby Smart was asked how a program that just a few years ago was one of college football's most tortured in their search for a national title for the first time since 1980 ascended to college football royalty, he credited hard work and attitude.

"As long as you don't have entitlement in your program, you've got a shot, and right now we don't have that," he said. But the coach did allude to the struggle it will be to keep new classes of Dawgs humble.
