ATHENS — Georgia football coach Kirby Smart has gotten the message across that it doesn’t matter who lines up across form his football team, the Bulldogs need to get better.
Georgia changes captains each week, but it’s safe to say quarterback Jake Fromm is a leader every day.
Fromm proved that by echoing his coach’s sentiments when asked how the No. 3-ranked Bulldogs stay dialed in for an overmatched opponent like Middle Tennessee.
“Coach Smart said a lot of teams, when they play this type of game, that they don’t get better,” Fromm said. “We’re still getting better this week. We’ve gotten a lot better in practice this week.That’s what I want to see, how are we getting better, and what areas on the team offensively are we getting better.
“Are we running the ball, are we making more plays on the outside, are we completing the ball better by making better checks? it just depends, but some how, some way as a team, we have to get better.”
