Georgia head football coach Kirby Smart didn't seem surprised by the Nick Saban-Jimbo Fisher drama. 

He spoke about it to Alabama beat writer Aaron Suttles and confirmed that sometimes things get heated between people.

"Sometimes things get heated," Smart said. "You should hear what’s said on the headsets. That makes this look like Mickey Mouse. You’d prefer it stay out of the public arena though."

The Saban and Fisher back-and-forth came just a couple of weeks ago after Saban claimed that Texas A&M "bought every player" in its 2022 recruiting class. 

The Aggies landed the top-rated recruiting class in the country heading into this season.

Fisher then called Saban's comments "despicable" and hasn't answered any of Saban's phone calls.

The two teams are set to square off on Oct. 8 down in Tuscaloosa. Bring your popcorn for that one.
