So, the Fromm bashing that eventually quieted down a few weeks after the LSU game has picked back up, I see. No, Jake didn’t have a particularly good night in New Orleans (maybe it’s something in the Louisiana water), but you know who had a worse night than he did?
The offensive line.
I don’t know how the same bunch that held its own against Quinnen Williams and his Alabama d-line mates could have fallen so far against Texas, but fall off a cliff they did. It looked like none of Georgia’s linemen had ever seen a blitz before. Not that they had to be outnumbered to wilt…
Over at UGAsports.com, Dayne Young uses that as an example of a Fromm failure, although he does note that Georgia’s o-line played its worst game of the season. It’s true that a couple of receivers break open as the play develops, but, damn, Fromm’s already running for his life by then.
That’s what happens when the guys you’ve trusted all season long to keep your ass upright get overwhelmed. I worship the ground Sam Pittman walks on, but this was not one of his finer moments, that’s for sure.
