I’m curious what y’all think of something And The Valley Shook’s Billy Gomila posted yesterday:
Color me unimpressed by Georgia’s win over the Irish last week. The atmosphere was certainly impressive — pretty light show — but let’s be real here. Georgia was a significant favorite, had Notre Dame completely outclassed on both sides of the ball and still had to sweat this game out. They scored just 7 points in the first half and had all of 59 passing yards. But we’re going to pretend that Jake Fromm checkdown charlie-ing his way to that number on 11-of-12 completions is special? That’s basically a well-run version of LSU’s offense under Les Miles. And that’s with a group of targets that’s every bit as highly-recruited as any fielded here. I’ll say this much for Fromm — he made some big throws down the stretch and he deserves credit for that. But if he can make those throws why aren’t Kirby Smart & Co. letting him do it more often? Yeah, they’ll roll over the East, because how could they not. But in a tight game against any team with a pulse, I don’t see how people can trust this team right now. [Emphasis added.]
I’ll say that I don’t recall anyone saying Fromm’s first half against ND was anything special. But the real tell for me is the question I highlighted. If that’s rhetorical — and I kinda assume it is — the issue with Fromm isn’t Jake Fromm.
The only thing I really take exception to is his conclusion. Didn’t Georgia just win exactly the kind of game he describes there? Or am I missing something? (Then again, if by “any team with a pulse”, he means only teams in, say, the top five, I guess we’ll have to wait and see.)
