LOS ANGELESJake Fromm settled in behind the microphone, scruffy faced, hair nicely coiffed, looking entirely comfortable in this unfamiliar setting as usual. While the line pass protected well most of the time, Georgia only mustered 191.2 rushing yards per game. What he has not done much is talk to reporters. Kirby Smart has set a policy where freshmen athletes do not do interviews.
"I've prepared more than any freshman quarterback or any quarterback out there in the country could have prepared", he said, according to a tweet from the SEC Network. There is no guarantee Fromm will play well against No. 2 Oklahoma on Monday in Pasadena, but it is safe to assume he will not be overwhelmed by the moment.
"Nick (Chubb) and Sony (Michel) don't let me venture off too much", Fromm said. "That's kind of the way I take games". Sophomore Jacob Eason went down with a knee injury during the opener against Appalachian State.
Fromm's first start was a road win at Notre Dame, 20-19.
When Chaney studied the 2016 season, one obvious thing stood out as to why the Bulldogs couldn't move the ball.
The large Georgia contingent making their way to California includes plenty of family for Fromm. A year ago, Georgia finished 11th in the SEC in both scoring offense (24.5 points per game) and total offense (384.7 yards per game). Fromm did not give up that role once Eason was healthy again.
Smart, the former Crimson Tide defensive coordinator, and his staff flipped Fromm to Georgia. He said taking things each day and improving - along with help from offensive coordinator Jim Chaney - have been keys to his success this season. He competed at the highest level against some really good teams. "They've got three guys that could play for anybody in the country". He threw some interceptions. "Just kind of come back from it", he said. He shows great resiliency and leadership..
Tight end Jeb Blazevich credits the addition of more RPOs - run-pass options - in jump-starting the offense.
Fromm was able to strike a balance with his older teammates. "I can only think about one time during the season that we had a little blemish that he acted like a freshman once in a while". And that was about the only time, Wynn said.
Of course, I was going to listen to the senior left tackle, Fromm said.
"He's a gamer", Oklahoma Sooners strong safety Steven Parker said of Fromm. "The pace of games is different", Stoops said.
"I'm not trying to sound cliched, but a lot of times with young kids, they don't see the field the way he does". And in 12 of Georgia's 13 games, that strategy has worked. And the Bulldogs play ferocious defense. That being said, they don't want to be 3rd and long all day.
Fromm is two victories away from becoming just the second true freshman quarterback to guide a team to a national championship, joining Oklahomas Jamelle Holieway, who did it in 1985.
"It's incredible", Fromm added when asked what it meant to be a part of the Rose Bowl.
