Kirby Smart of Georgia berates George Pickens for unsportsmanlike penalty against Tennessee



Georgia wide receiver George Pickens received an unsportsmanlike penalty at halftime against Tennessee on Saturday for splashing water from a bottle on Volunteers quarterback Jarrett Guarantano.

On the first and 10 from 36 of the Vols, Guarantano ran for a 3-yard run before falling out of bounds towards the Georgia sideline. While Guarantano was on the ground, Pickens was seen walking towards him and spraying water from a bottle in Guarantano.

“When someone goes out of bounds and you splash water, what are we? Are we 7 and 8?” Bulldogs trainer Kirby Smart said. “I mean, come on, let’s play football. We’re not fools.”

Pickens’ unsportsmanlike penalty gave Tennessee a first down. Five games later, Tennessee would take a 21-17 lead when Guarantano found wide receiver Josh Palmer for a 27-yard landing pass.

Georgia went on to win 44-21.

Pickens finished with two catches for 14 yards.
