Georgia football podcast: NFL analyst says Jake Fromm ‘no-brainer for Heisman candidacy’

Beginning of the show: Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm is a “no-brainer for Heisman candidacy” according to NFL .com’s Chase Goodbread. I’ll talk more about that and share audio from UGA coach Kirby Smart on the topic of quarterbacks from a recent interview on WJOX in Birmingham, Ala.

10-minute mark: I examine some interesting tidbits of recruiting information from DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell on his Wednesday night show — including the latest on 4-star defensive end Derick “Rambo” Hunter and 4-star running back John Emery Jr.

15-minute mark: The Sporting News’ Bill Bender joins the show. Some of the topics covered:

  • How does Jake Fromm compare to other SEC quarterbacks?
  • Should Fromm be ranked ahead of or behind Tua Tagovailoa?
  • Is Tua the reason Alabama is projected to be a playoff team?
  • UGA projected as No. 3 team and in Sugar Bowl. Why?
  • What does the future hold for high-profile nonconference games?
  • Thoughts on Mike Slive’s passing.

30-minute mark: I take a look at some other SEC headlines, including: a number of SEC quarterbacks landing on NFL.com’s list of Heisman favorites; former SEC commissioner Mike Slive passing away; Clemson defensive lineman possibly transferring to South Carolina; and Alabama scheduling a home-and-home series with Texas.
