Georgia football podcast: Kirk Herbstreit’s questions about Jake Fromm are nonsense

Beginning of the show: ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit still wonders if Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm is capable of passing UGA to a win. It seems Fromm’s statistics should confront any doubts about how the freshman will perform in the upcoming pressure-packed moments this season is sure to bring, but still the questions persist. On today’s show, I’ll explain why that Fromm far from UGA’s biggest concern.

10-minute mark: I announce the winner of our Own The East t-shirt giveaway, talk about UGA’s chances of picking up 5-star offensive lineman Cade Mays, and I discuss linebacker Roquan Smith’s presence in the first round of some early mock drafts.

15-minute mark: SEC Country’s Mike Johnson joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • UGA being ranked No. 1 again by the College Football Playoff selection committee
  • How the Bulldogs compare to the committee’s No. 2 team — Alabama
  • What to expect this Saturday vs. Auburn
  • And who belongs with the Bulldogs and Crimson Tide in the top four

30-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines including where Auburn, Mississippi State, and LSU landed in this week’s rankings, and some rumors about MSU coach Dan Mullen heading to Tennessee as a replacement for Vols coach Butch Jones.

35-minute mark: Former UGA quarterback David Greene joins the show to look back at his memorable touchdown throw to win the 2002 game vs. Auburn, to preview this Saturday’s game, and to respond to criticism of Fromm.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and invite DawgNation Daily listeners and viewers to participate in our drawing for the Own The East t-shirt giveaway.
