When watching Georgia play this season, former Heisman Trophy winner and Florida quarterback Tim Tebow thinks he knows what could take the Bulldogs to the next level.

In Athens, Ga., for Saturday’s Georgia-South Carolina game with the SEC Nation crew, Tebow met with the media on Friday and shared his thoughts on the Bulldogs. One of them was that he’d like to see junior quarterback Jake Fromm carry even more responsibility in the offense.

“They have to be able to continue putting it on Jake’s shoulders,” Tebow told reporters. “I think in the Notre Dame game, they knew they were the better team and they were playing not to lose, rather than playing to win, and I think when you have a veteran quarterback like Jake, there’s going to be certain times where if you’re going to win it all, you have to put it on his shoulders. I think that was a time where I’d have liked to seen him open it up, because when they did, they went right down the field.

“And I think you’re also seeing his receivers step up that are getting better every week. A few of those dudes are freaks and hard to cover.”

Fromm has passed for 1,076 yards, eight touchdowns and no interceptions during Georgia’s 5-0 start. In last week’s win over Tennessee, he set season highs in completions (24), attempts (29) and passing yards (288), so perhaps Tebow is right and Fromm will start airing it out more for the Bulldogs.

No. 5 Georgia and South Carolina are set to kick off on Saturday at noon ET on ESPN.
