Cover 4 on UGA football: Who is the midseason offensive MVP?

UGA football-Jake Fromm-Lamont Gaillard-DawgNation Cover 4
Jake Fromm and Lamont Gaillard are two key pieces of the UGA football team this year.

DawgNation has four staffers who cover the UGA football team from every angle: Beat, live streams, photos, podcasts, recruiting, etc. The Cover 4 aim is simple: 1) Present a topic; 2) Offer a reasoned response; 3) Share a brisk statement to support the informed opinion. 

The Bulldogs are 6-0 right now. That’s been dutifully acknowledged and reported, but maybe not the fact that the Bulldogs are at the midseason point of the regular season schedule.

There are four more big SEC games (out of the six opponents) with LSU, Florida, Kentucky and Auburn left to play along with rival Georgia Tech and UMass.

What have we seen so far through the midway point? Let’s take a look at the offensive side of the ball first.

This Cover 4 question: Who is the midseason offensive MVP for UGA football?

These takes are designed to come out even faster than Georgia and LSU fans can fire up those tailgates on Saturday morning.

Who is the midseason offensive MVP for UGA football?

Brandon Adams: Lamont Gaillard

Lamont Gaillard is a lot more valuable to UGA than most will ever think. DawgNation Daily understands that. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)

The why from Adams: Georgia’s been dealt some tough injury luck — Andrew Thomas, Ben Cleveland and Solomon Kindley have all missed time. That makes Gaillard’s role even more valuable.

Chip Towers: Jake Fromm

The why from Towers Take: He’s operating at an extremely high level of efficiency that has gotten masked by Georgia’s need to play Justin Fields to have him ready just in case.

Mike Griffith: Jake Fromm

Mike Griffith feels that Jake Fromm has displayed uncanny leadership through an interesting competition at QB so far this year. (Jeff Sentell/DawgNation)

The why from On The Beat: He has displayed great leadership and responded to competition and lost playing time that’s come about with Justin Fields’ maturation and performances.

Jeff Sentell: Jake Fromm

Why: Mecole Hardman was building an early case for it, but Fromm is likely the best player in college football right now not getting the full share of reps at his position.
