Personally, that shouldn't be a decision to make based upon the depth chart. The NFL has even more competition. Running from it now doesn't help.

The decision to transfer should have been based upon one of 2 things.
1) does UGA not prepare me for the NFL. That is a great question as UGA has not shown a ton of success with dual threat QBs. We do have a NFL style QB system (under center, tight ends, reads at the line and audibles), though.

2) does UGA have the best system to take advantage of Fields talents. The answer is no. There are plenty of other systems best suited for Fields. But many of those same systems have a knock that they dont properly prepare QBs.

Fields decision to transfer is based upon #2 as evidenced by where he went.

But that is a short term game and potentially a long term loss. We shall have to see.

I don't understand the blame for that either. Dad hired a lawyer and the lawyer did whatever he could to make the kid eligible. Why is the 19 year old deserving of that much hate?

Frankly, I'm quite happy with what UGA has right now. Neither of the guys reacted well to last year's QB competition, and I expect Jake to have a great season because he knows it's his team to lead.

Fields is playing under a more proven QB coach and he'll get the starts to quickly develop into the player he thinks he can be - or find out that he can't be that player.

On all sides this is probably best case. It's immature to still be salty.

Different perspective but I don't see any hate at all. The kid left and appears to be struggling with the position. Five star guys sometimes don't pan out. Maybe he is not all he has been cooked up to be or perhaps he becomes a first round draft pick.

Again, coaches like predictable, they want you to succeed with the called play, not always making something happen in the fall out of a broken play that was created by a constant inability to execute the called play.

Huh?? Sometimes I wonder what program you people are actually following...

First off, Fromm reacted incredibly well to the situation. He was amazingly patient and tolerant of the deal and handled it better than he should have ever been expected to. In fact he and his family deserve praise for how they handled it and for not making an ugly scene like other families might have done if the tables were turned.

Second off, there wasn't ever even a QB competition to begin with. Fields never had a shot at unseating Fromm. So instead, there was a coaching decision to allow Fields to get playing time that he didn't earn and didn't deserve....all in order to appease his entitlement attitude with Kirby hoping it would keep him from eventually transferring.

Which, of course, it didn't.

Funny people talking about commitments or promises. I have never seen a Coaching staff bend over backwards, or screw over a generational talent like Fromm, to get a true freshman who doesn't know the offense a chance. Bizarre chapter and what is happening at OSU is predictable.

Well said. That's it right there in a nutshell. And it is most definitely one hell of a bizarre chapter.


Fromm will never get the respect he deserves nationally, which is fine. Whatever. But the disrespect he got last year from his own coaching staff is unforgiveable. Hell, even most Georgia fans don't seem to appreciate Fromm enough.

Most of them had sweaty hot-n-bothered man-crushes on Eason and Fields all over style and haircuts and headbands and gay stuff. But, here is Fromm, a winner with actual tangible top-notch results, and it doesn't do as much for them. Very very disappointing and bizarre.

And then when the guy Fromm ran off arrived at OHstate, one of their guys ran from Fields and went to Miami. And now reportedly, this guy didn't win the starting job and is sitting out of practice.

re: Justin Fields having trouble beating out former Kentucky backup
I think the hate for Fields has to do with how he handed the situation. Everything we saw and heard made us believe he didn’t think he was getting enough PT, when in fact, it was the opposite. This especially sucks since we were a few plays away from being in the natty game again.


Some of this is on Kirby too. I like to think he learned from this one.

re: Justin Fields having trouble beating out former Kentucky backup
All I know is that coming into the 3rd year of this QB saga....we are basically half-way through what sounds like a freaking movie script or a plotline from a novel. The problem though, is that it could still be any genre of movie or novel..


Horror Genre?: UGA faces Eason or Beaker in a playoff or championship, and lose.

Adventure/Thriller Genre?: Same match-up above, but Fromm completes the Hail Mary for the win and glory.

After-School Special (educational)?: Field's entitlement mindset and bad attitude catch up with him. Eason's patience and humility are rewarded with respectable 10 win season. Woopty doo. The Heisman voters somehow re-remember what the award is suppose to be about and so Fromm's superior leadership skills and integrity are recognized and rewarded in NYC this december.

Boring documentary?: OH st has 5 loss re-building year. Eason plays in Pac 12 so he's basically invisible. Georgia loses to bama again and third of team opts to "business-decision" out of the Sugar bowl, an event that historians point to as what killed college football after it helps facilitate further playoff expansion.

Forrest Gump-style Turner Classic?: Eason and Fields chapters turn out to be just feathers floating through the Forrest Fromm story. Which is about him being a man of destiny. From the right place. And in the right place. Always. And at the right time. Right here. And right now. And it happens! This year And the next! Two natl championships at UGA before being drafted by Patriots and taking over for Brady and winning 6 super bowl rings. One more than Tom.


There;'s probably others too.

re: Justin Fields having trouble beating out former Kentucky backup
Another point to make for people who are able to recognize the epic Hollywood story we're in the middle of:

Doesn't it seem weird that Field's last play at UGA, the last time he ever touched the ball.....was the bizarro world fake punt fiasco against alabama?


To me, it just seems like that the story isn't finished with that crucial detail. That whatever is coming in the future, and when the story is finished, that this fact will have even greater significance than it already does somehow and someway. I don't know how, but it's too weird not to.

Western

Despite impossible odds Jake faces and dispatches Tua, Eason and Fields to win the Natty. We later find out he had a dislocated shoulder, a bloody nose and gout during the natty when he threw a flawless game.

He then rides off in the sunset to the top of the ridge with the trophy on the way to the NFL while the Fields fan boys yell “Jake! Don’t go Jake! Don’t go!”

Do we though? I mean, what percentage of snaps are from under center? I can't imagine it is very high. I really don't know. It just seems like Fromm was under center very little.

This is true. It has to do with QB reads at the line of scrimmage, etc.

under center

or not does not change Georgia's pro style system (historically at least, haven't seen Coley yet).

Shotgun is in a pro style system.
