After loss to LSU, can we write off Georgia? Paul Finebaum weighs in
The Georgia Bulldogs were shocked by the LSU Tigers Saturday in Baton Rouge 36-16.
The Bulldogs offense struggled to get anything going with QB Jake Fromm, who threw for 209 yards, one TD and two INTs. Georgia managed just 322 total yards against LSU’s fast and physical defense. The four turnovers killed the Bulldogs, too.
Following the loss to LSU, the schedule remains tough for Georgia, as the Dawgs face Florida, Kentucky and Auburn in their next three games. If UGA could win out during the regular season, it would likely face either Alabama or a rematch with LSU in Atlanta.
Is it time to write off Georgia? Paul Finebaum hopped on SportsCenter early Sunday morning to discuss the topic.
“It’s tempting, but I’m not going to,” Finebaum said.”Because they can get back together again — and they did this last year after just getting eviscerated by Auburn and almost winning the national championship.”
Finebaum then talked about the Jake Fromm vs. Justin Fields battle.
“There were a couple things I didn’t like. … Justin Fields — everyone is moving to a younger more mobile QB, why not Kirby Smart? The schedule is going to get more problematic especially with Florida and Kentucky. Well, you can forget Auburn.”
Smart commented directly on the Fromm vs. Fields situation during his post-game press conference.
It’s certainly not time to write off the Bulldogs, but UGA is going to have to address and fix several things moving forward in order to be put in a position to get back to Atlanta and the national championship.
