Kirk Herbstreit on Georgia: 'There's a culture change we're witnessing'
The Georgia Bulldogs are 6-0 and sitting at No. 4 in the AP Poll in only their second year under coach Kirby Smart.
If the Bulldogs take care of business against Mizzou on Saturday night, they should move into the top three in the poll.
On College GameDay on Saturday morning, ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit credited Smart for changing the culture in Athens, especially with the defense. He then complimented the Georgia running game before saying he still needs to see more from freshman QB Jake Fromm in the passing game moving forward.
“I think there’s a culture change we’re witnessing,” he said. “They’ve been able to show consistency. They’re running right now at will. Jake Fromm’s throwing on his terms. What will he do, as a young guy with a bright future, when they can’t run for seven yards a carry against Auburn?”
The regular season is only halfway over, and the Bulldogs still have some tough tests ahead, but it’s looking like it could be a special season for Georgia.
The Bulldogs host the Tigers on Saturday night. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. Eastern time and can be seen on the SEC Network.
