Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm is more than what some call a 'game manager.'

Georgia football podcast: Advanced stats show Jake Fromm more than ‘game manager’

Brandon Adams

Georgia football is the No. 1 topic every day on DawgNation Daily — the daily podcast for Georgia Bulldogs fans. Catch up on everything happening with UGA athletics with host Brandon Adams and the cast of DawgNation experts as they discuss UGA coach Kirby Smart’s quest to return the Bulldogs to the top of the SEC and break down the latest Georgia football recruiting news. On episode No. 553 (Oct. 11, 2017) of the podcast, UGA fans can hear a discussion about Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm.

Georgia football podcast: Advanced stats show Jake Fromm more than ‘game manager’

Beginning of the show: There are some statistics that suggest Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm isn’t having a good season, and isn’t much more than just a “game manager” for the UGA offense. However, a deeper look at the numbers indicates Fromm is having a better season than he’s gotten credit for, and he could be more than capable of taking on a bigger load for UGA if needed. I’ll explain why on the Wednesday show.

10-minute mark: I’ll talk about why UGA coach Kirby Smart isn’t giving up on sophomore wide receiver Mecole Hardman despite some drops this season, and I’ll share audio from 5-star quarterback Justin Fields from ESPNU Radio explaining why he committed to UGA.

15-minute mark: SEC Country’s Mike Johnson joins the show. Some of the topics discussed include:

  • UGA’s ability to block out distractions
  • Running back Nick Chubb’s Heisman Trophy chances
  • A look at whether UGA’s secondary will be equal to the challenges it’s expected to face before the end of the season
  • And an evaluation of Missouri — Georgia’s opponent this Saturday

30-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including the quarterback controversy at Tennessee, one writer’s suggestion that Alabama needs more doubters, Les Miles returning to LSU for the game Saturday vs. Auburn, and a terrific honor for former UGA star Champ Bailey.

35-minute mark: Former UGA quarterback David Greene joins the show to talk about the Bulldogs’ 6-0 start and preview a big autograph signing at Tailgate Apparel in Athens, Ga., on Saturday.

End of show: I share why Champ Bailey’s career at UGA probably makes things harder for players like Mecole Hardman.
