Citizens of DawgNation who commented on our Facebook page weighed in with their opinions about all that happened between the hedges Saturday, as the Red Team beat the Black Team 25-22.
Here are some of their comments. Some have been edited for clarity:
Andy Fordham: Let’s really hope Fromm is not the starter. Remember the freshman growing pains that Eason went through last year? Those growing pains are unavoidable. It will not be a good sign if Fromm does beat out Eason.
Mike Buglioli: Fromm with 277 yards passing, Eason with 311. Eason faced a very good defense. O-line was missing key starters, rushing was totally de-emphasized so wasn’t that great.
James Crump: Either the defense is going to be one of the best in the nation or the offense still need to be retooled, starting with the O-line. J.J. Holloman should be a starting WR.
Maurice Walker: Do the fans realize that the second team secondary has a bunch of guys who are mainly unknown? Much of the secondary transferred. We waiting on the rest of recruits.
Mitch Strickland: Eason is the starter. His touch was fine. How can anyone compare Fromm going with the 2nd string defense? C’mon guys.
Travis Griffin: Looks like we should have a shut-down defense, and a grind-it-out offense, with speed in the wideouts. Can’t wait for 2017 season, baby. Go Dawgs!
Matt and Jenni Mitchell Anderson: Evander Holyfield Jr. has the skill sets, but ball security could be an issue if he keeps carrying the ball on the wrong side of his body around defenders.
Montez Cole: Either the offensive line is still bad, or the defensive line has gotten better. I believe the offensive line has not gotten better. Neither has Jacob Eason’s deep-ball accuracy.
Maurice Long: Even though it was the second-unit defense, you can see Fromm’s understanding of the offense and his ball placement. Fromm looks pretty good.
Rodney J. Greathouse: The 2-point conversion for Fromm was huge. Not real sure Eason could have made that play. Tight window with touch.
