That might be the epitaph for Jake Fromm’s Georgia career.
One thing I’m really curious about after watching the replay is why the coaches didn’t trust Jake more in the first half against Notre Dame when the defensive scheme begged him to put the ball up deep to take advantage of an aggressive alignment designed to clog running lanes.
If it were due a lack of trust in receivers still fairly new to the offense stepping up, okay, maybe, but it’s not like Cager and Robertson didn’t look awfully sure-handed when called upon. (For that matter, Pickens probably would have been productive had the refs enforced pass interference.)
I saw a quarterback Saturday night who was extremely accurate with his throws, even those with some distance on them, and a defense that was ripe for the deep ball. I’m not buying the narrative that forcing Fromm to throw longer passes is the way to shut down Georgia’s offense because the playcalling isn’t taking the bait. But I sure would love to see that narrative tested more often.
