This time, baby, it’s for real, right?
Georgia is turning to freshman quarterback Jacob Eason to make his first college start Saturday against Nicholls State, according to a source close to the situation.
It will come in the Bulldogs’ home opener in only the second game of the season.
Honestly, it makes sense. Eason didn’t look lost against North Carolina and getting a start against an FCS opponent in front of a friendly crowd is as good a way to get his feet wet in that role as Smart and Chaney are going to find.
Should make the Nicholls game a little more interesting than your average cupcake, no?
