Putting his financial aid where his mouth is.

Quarterback of the future Jake Fromm has signed financial aid papers with Georgia.

Fromm has maintained throughout his recruitment that Eason being at Georgia has no bearing on his decision.

Apparently Georgia’s offensive line being at Georgia has no bearing on his decision, either.

It’s not whether you win or lose. It’s how you punish the other team.

Maybe this is why Kirby called that last time out against Florida.

In the latter stages of Saturday’s 24-10 loss to Florida in Jacksonville, Kirby Smart didn’t see any quit in a Georgia defense that the last couple of weeks arguably has played good enough to win but hasn’t.

“They were just hell-bent that they were going to go out there and punish somebody,” Smart said. “That’s what we play for, to go punish the other team and not look at the scoreboard. That’s the first time I thought, ‘You know what? They didn’t care about the scoreboard, they just wanted to go out there and stop them over and over again. They found joy in that and that’s all they can do right now is control that.”

Of course, Florida got another first down after that, but it’s a nice thought, right?

Stay classy, Baylor.

Just when you think it can’t get any sleazier

Baylor’s former Title IX coordinator alleged that the school’s head of public safety said that some women making sexual assault accusations at Baylor were mentally ill.

Patty Crawford, who resigned from her position at Baylor earlier this fall, told 60 Minutes Sports in an interview that Reagan Ramsower made the statement in an emergency meeting in September 2015 following the rape conviction of Baylor football player Sam Ukwuachu.

The meeting was in then-president Ken Starr’s office.

“As I understand it, what someone said in this meeting was, quote, ‘What Patty is saying is not fact,’” 60 Minutes reporter Armen Keteyan said. “‘Those women had mental illness. We have to stick with the facts and there are none.’ Is that accurate?”

“That is,” Crawford said.

Always look on the bright side

We already know that one thing Kirby is selling about this mediocre season on the recruiting trail is the opportunity to play early.  There’s something else he can offer, too.

Farrell expects Smart to be willing to play guys he recruited fast like he has this year.

“The good thing for him,” he said, “is the SEC East is awful so they’ve got an opportunity to turn it around maybe a little quicker than they would if they were in the Big Ten East or SEC West.”

Ain’t that the truth.

How we got here.

Ladies and gentlemen, your SEC East, in one sentence:  “Kentucky has played better than Georgia this season, but UGA still has superior talent on both sides of the ball.”
