Sport: What Kirby Smart Texted Dan Lanning After National Title

Soul-searching put Australia's women cricketers on top of the world

  Soul-searching put Australia's women cricketers on top of the world Australia's women's cricketers can lay justifiable claim to being the greatest sports team on the planet after their all-conquering run to World Cup glory was capped by a record-breaking demolition of England in the final. She is the first player to reach three figures in both the semi-final, where she scored 129, and the final of a World Cup -- men's or women's.Individual and team records were shattered in Christchurch as they completed a clean sweep by adding the 50-over world championship to Twenty20 World Cup and Ashes crowns, the culmination of a meticulous five-year plan.

Georgia head coach Kirby Smart didn’t wait very long to remove new Oregon head coach Dan Lanning from his text message chain.

Prior to the College Football Playoff, Lanning – Georgia’s former defensive coordinator – was named the head coach at Oregon. Lanning stayed with the Bulldogs throughout their championship run though, to continue coaching the Georgia defense.

Lanning no doubt played a significant role in helping the Bulldogs beat Alabama 33-18 in the title game. Not long after, Lanning flipped his attention to Oregon. Smart, on the other hand, didn’t take long to make a change to his group message chain.

Lions HC Dan Campbell wants 'day one starter' with No. 2 pick of 2022 NFL Draft

  Lions HC Dan Campbell wants 'day one starter' with No. 2 pick of 2022 NFL Draft While at least one earlier mock draft linked the Lions with former Liberty Flames quarterback Malik Willis, five different CBS Sports analysts currently predict Detroit will use pick No. 2 on a hoped-to-be defensive star. However, the Lions also hold the rights to the final choice (No. 32 overall) of the draft's first round and theoretically could use it to acquire a signal-caller or trade it away to obtain additional draft capital. Back in January, Holmes seemed to commit to Goff as his starter for at least 2022, but the 27-year-old is on a contract that, financially speaking, would be easy to dump next winter.

Lanning revealed during an Oregon press conference on Thursday that Smart told Lanning after the championship that he loved him, but now had to remove him from the Georgia staff text.

There’s probably an obvious reason Kirby Smart moved on from Dan Lanning so quickly.

Smart and Lanning will go head-to-head to open the 2022 season when the Georgia Bulldogs and Oregon Ducks meet in Atlanta. It’s without a doubt the biggest season-opener in Ducks’ history. Georgia, meanwhile, will try and get the 2022 season started on the right note and avoid a championship hangover.

Lanning helped orchestrate one of the best defensive units college football has seen in the past decade. The former Georgia defensive play-caller will now shift his focus to the entire Oregon football program.
