With all due respect, Connor Riley asks the wrong “what if?” question here.
The better question to ask is “what if Kirby Smart hadn’t flipped Jake Fromm to Georgia?“.
Sure, there’s the matter of how the 2017 season would have played out after Eason’s injury, but there’s much more.
Georgia would have had better class spacing between quarterbacks to sell Justin Fields on. Alabama would have been a tougher sell for Tagovailoa. Would Fromm have been as good a match for the more wide open offense the Tide adopted with Tua? If Tua had gone to Tuscaloosa anyway and won out, would it have been Fromm in the transfer portal?
We’ll never know.
