Georgia football podcast: Don’t blame UGA fans for Jake Fromm’s bittersweet departure

Beginning of the show: Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm put a punctuation mark on his UGA career this week by tweeting out his intentions to leave school and enter the NFL draft. It was an ending that felt bittersweet to many. I’ll explain on today’s show why one of the potential reasons that’s been suggested for Fromm’s exit — the criticism he received from a vocal minority of UGA fans — shouldn’t be blamed for his early departure.

10-minute mark: I address what could be next for the Bulldogs at quarterback.

15-minute mark: Former UGA quarterback David Greene joins the show. Some of the topics covered include…

  • A look back at the top moments in Fromm’s career
  • An explanation of the pressure faced by a Bulldogs quarterback
  • A description of what the NFL draft process is like
  • And some thoughts on the difficult task of replacing Fromm next season

30-minute mark: I discuss former UGA offensive lineman Cade Mays’ transfer to Tennessee and the weird circumstances surrounding a law suit filed by Mays’ father against UGA after his finger was partially severed during a recruiting visit prior to Mays signing with the Bulldogs in 2018.

End of show: I share the Gator Hater Updater.
