Georgia football podcast: Kirby Smart facing tough questions about his QBs

Beginning of the show: Georgia lost Saturday vs. LSU and UGA quarterback Jake Fromm didn’t have a good game. This will increase calls from some fans to see more of the backup quarterback, freshman Justin Fields. There’s a debate to be had about whether Fromm or Fields is the right choice for UGA, but what isn’t debatable is that UGA coach Kirby Smart’s decision making about his quarterbacks is becoming more controversial. I’ll talk more about that subject on today’s show.

10-minute mark: I’ll share audio of Smart addressing the quarterback situation.

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

  • Chip’s thoughts on the quarterback situation
  • Whether the Bulldogs were guilty of abandoning the running game Saturday
  • The strange decision to fake a field goal — which backfired on UGA and seemingly generated momentum for LSU
  • And where UGA goes next with Florida looming in two weeks

30-minute mark: I react to the top SEC games of the weekend — including Florida’s win against Vanderbilt, Auburn’s loss to Tennessee, Alabama’s potentially costly victory over Missouri and more.

35-minute mark: I’ll talk more about why Georgia’s running backs — including Elijah Holyfield — weren’t used more Saturday despite putting up impressive stats.

End of show: I update the Gator Hater Countdown and thank DawgNation for making DawgNation Invasion a fun weekend.
