Georgia football podcast: National writer calls Jake Fromm 2018 Heisman candidate

Beginning of the show: Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm is among the names that should be considered for the 2018 Heisman Trophy, according to USA Today’s Paul Myerberg. I’ll talk on the Monday show about why the characteristics that could make Fromm a Heisman candidate also could show up in the Rose Bowl against Oklahoma.

10-minute mark: Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith didn’t miss a single tackle against the run all season long, according to stats collected by Pro Football Focus. I’ll explain why those numbers should’ve added up to more national attention for Smith, and share what UGA defensive tackle Trent Thompson said that has DawgNation thinking Thompson plans to return for his senior season.

15-minute mark: DawgNation’s Chip Towers joins the show. Some of the topics covered include:

  • The challenges UGA coach Kirby Smart faces as he prepares for the College Football Playoff while simultaneously readying his program for the early signing period, which runs Dec. 20-22.
  • Whether Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield will say anything controversial in the weeks leading up to the Rose Bowl
  • Why former UGA defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt was a risky hire for Tennessee
  • What UGA linebackers coach Kevin Sherrer’s departure means for the Bulldogs

30-minute mark: I talk about some other SEC headlines, including news involving 4-star linebacker Quay Walker.

35-minute mark: New Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher essentially copied Smart word for word in one of his first addresses to Aggies fans. I’ll share the audio to prove that point.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown.
