Kirby Smart's Cornhole Form Is Atrocious And Infuriating

Georgia head football coach Kirby Smart plays cornhole like he's Steph Curry.

First things first. I consider myself somewhat of a corn hole purist—an aficionado of the sport, if you will. I was born and raised in the Midwest and have attended countless open houses, festivals, fairs and parties that have included the wonderful yard game, which is to say, I know how to play the game The Right Way. So when I saw the tweet below, I was immediately taken aback, and shaken to my core.

Overhand? C'mon man. That's like shooting free throws in granny-form (but a lot worse!). Some folks wouldn't even allow that kind of blasphemy to taint their lawn. It's wrong in the way that eating soup with a fork is wrong. Have some respect for the game, Kirby!

With that in mind, I dug for actual footage of his alleged cornhole sins, and thanks to the power of Google, I found video.

You get an up-close shot about one minute in.

Behold:

He acknowledges that his form is "a little unorthodox." I'll say.

Kirby, if you ever need cornhole lessons, I am here to help.
