Overreactions from Saturday's game vs. Appalachian State

The Bulldogs received 8,000 tickets from Notre Dame and an additional 400 went to the Redcoat Band, but reports are surfacing that the secondary ticket market could result in at least 20,000-plus Bulldogs faithful piling into Notre Dame Stadium, which now holds 77,622 capacity.

Count Vince Dooley among those who believe in Jake Fromm.

Of course, there was no telling when the first college snap would come for the Bulldogs' backup from Warner Robins, but Fromm felt pretty sure it wouldn't come against Appalachian State. The sophomore wasn't able to get comfortable and never found a rhythm.

Some bright spots for the Mountaineers came from the contributions of six true freshmen, including offensive starters Noah Hannon, Thomas Hennigan and Malik Williams.

The last time Georgia played a football game above the Mason-Dixon Line, Neil Armstrong had not yet stepped on the moon, Barack Obama was four years old and Walt Disney was still alive. Can Fromm handle the job?

Fromm may not be as tall as Jacob Eason, and wasn't as heralded a recruit. He also got the benefit of playing against a team that doesn't have the talent of the next team on the schedule. The Irish kept the 18th spot after defeating Nevada in Game 2 but fell out of the rankings for good after losing to Michigan State the following week. Whether they would have looked more cohesive with Eason this season will remain a mystery for now, but they looked sharp with Fromm at the controls.

The Georgia Bulldogs are about to do something they haven't done in more than 50 years.

"Fromm seems more accurate a passer than Eason, which allows the offense to go more up-tempo".

The Bulldogs are now sitting at 7-1 against the spread in their last 8 away-games and are 1-6 in their last 7 games after winning a game.

"The guy is the real deal and is in the lab all day, so it didn't really surprise me that he played so well", senior outside linebacker Davin Bellamy said.

On the morning after Georgia's win, Lassiter reached Fromm by phone, out in the woods somewhere "shooting birds".

Georgia increased its cushion to 21-0 following Michel's 6-yard touchdown plunge and Blankenship's PAT at the 6:56 mark of the second quarter.

"I think McGlinchey is going to be a first-round pick; if not, he's going to be really close", Georgia coach Kirby Smart said. For the Fighting Irish, it starts with quarterback Brandon Wimbush as he gets his first significant opportunity after sitting behind Deshone Kizer for two seasons.

The consensus on Jake Fromm is that he played admirably given the situation. Despite what you might think, the freshman will not win or lose this game for Georgia. "But it's not anything we haven't seen before, and I think the defense is up for a challenge".

Morgan led the Irish in tackles against Temple with eight and managed to limit the Owls' main threat, .A similar performance will be hard, primarily because Chubb and Michel are considered the best running back tandem in the talent-rich SEC.

The first two offensive lines that Georgia will face this season operate on polarizing extremes.
