That thing that happened last week? Don’t do that again

Jake Fromm needs to return to form this week.

The way I see it, two things are likely to happen on Saturday early evening in Athens.

Either Georgia comes close to our covers the point spread...or the Bulldogs slop around for an uninspiring win, giving them two weeks to stew over it going into the Florida game.

The way I see it, Georgia wins. To do that, here’s three things they need to do.

Find the old Fromm

I’m not sure, and few will ever know, what in the wide, wide world of sports was going on with Jake Fromm last week (Yes, that was a Blazing Saddles reference). There’s no other way to say it - QB11 had his worst game as a Bulldogs, and something was off. He needs to get into a rhythm, connect on mid-range passes and not make mistakes.

Be ready to play

Georgia the past two weeks has started slow. It dug itself out at Tennessee and never got away from the funk against South Carolina. The Bulldogs need an emphatic, kick UK in the mouth start and send a message.

Be Versatile

Lynn Bowden did a lot of good things for Kentucky last week, and Georgia will need to be ready for him, at QB or receiver. It’ll be critical for Georgia to adapt, coaching wise and on the field to what kind of looks and packages that the Wildcats employ.

Go Dawgs!
