Sound Off: Brandon and Jeff anoint UGA’s starting QB, rave about running game
Thanks for tuning in to the Zaxby’s Sound Off. Jeff Sentell and Brandon Adams stepped in this week for Chip Towers and Seth Emerson for the weekly edition and broke down Georgia’s big 45-14 victory over Vanderbilt and looked ahead to Missouri.
After they acknowledged Chip’s undeniable handsome looks and camera presence — sorry, Seth — they got down to talking about the talk of the town: the 6-0 UGA Bulldogs.
Playing along with the Zaxby’s sponsorship theme, Brandon said Georgia’s play in the SEC has been “indescribably good.”
Jeff got things off with a bold statement painted in red and black about how the DawgNation fan base has begun to leave a huge paw print across the SEC, and elsewhere. “They’ve turned Tennessee into a home game. They turned Vanderbilt into a home game. And, oh, you may have also heard about how that time they turned Notre Dame into a home game.”
Brandon picked up on Jeff’s cue and seemed to settle the waning debate over whether Jake Fromm or Jacob Eason will/should be the Dawgs long-term starting quarterback.
The answer is Jake Fromm.
“Jacob Eason comes and plays a little backup, but Fromm is clearly Georgia’s starter right now,” Jeff said. “I am sure Kirby Smart will continue to push the idea of a competition throughout practice. But it seems obvious to the naked eye that Fromm is the guy who has the trust of the team, the trust of the coaches, and after his performance Saturday — not a dazzling day statistically, he did have a couple of touchdowns, a pretty efficient day— Fromm is earning more of that trust among the fans. For now, Fromm now is Georgia’s quarterback.”
Adds Jeff: “It sounds like a teenage Twilight episode with everybody like ‘Team This’ or ‘Team That’ in the fan base. But the coaches see every rep these guys take at practice. They know how close it actually is.”
Which isn’t very close.
They hit on more than that in the show.
They move on to talk about the stellar season being enjoyed by Nick Chubb and the assistance he is receiving from Sony Michel, D’Andre Swift and Elijah Holyfield.
“This is a deep a collection of running backs as Georgia has ever had,” Brandon said.
There is plenty more, but you’ll have to watch to find out.
