He enrolled at Georgia in January and participated in spring drills.
"We repped that play during the summer in camp and in the week leading up to the game", he said.
"I remember when we played there, it was always wet and the grass was extremely high, but now they've got (FieldTurf) so that's all different", Rodriguez said. "This is a freshman coming in against a defense with 10 returning starters telling them to hurry up".
Yes, for a true freshman playing in the first college game - in front of the biggest crowd he's ever performed in front of - last Saturday was impressive.
UGA quarterback Jacob Eason will be out indefinitely with a sprained knee ligament, head coach Kirby Smart announced on Monday. "I think he just trusted and believed in me, just like I trust and believe in him", Wims said. "He has the poise of a senior". "He has the mind of a 22-year-old trying to make an National Football League team", Bellamy said. "He really didn't get to showcase that and show it the other day".
As a result, there is plenty of faith that Georgia's offense will be just fine with Fromm under center.
Quarterback Jacob Eason will not play in No. 15 Georgia's game at Notre Dame after spraining his left knee in last week's win over Appalachian State. That came in 2011 when Fromm was the star of the Warner Robins, Ga., all-star team that made the Little League World Series.
That makes Saturday a flawless test for Fromm. But if Fromm is good-but-not-great - moments of brilliance juxtaposed alongside typical, understandable freshman mistakes - then Georgia will have a tough decision on its hands. Luckily for him he has one of the best backfields in the country with Nick Chubb and Sony Michel.
The job he did - completing 10 of 15 passes for 143 yards and a touchdown - led Georgia to a 31-10 victory and excited fans.
It was also the first touchdown of Fromm's career, and the highlight of the young quarterback's first action with the team. He looked pretty good most of the time and he led a successful offense. 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. So the next team probably will be.
"There are certainly a lot of things we can correct and fix, we played a lot of young players, started three true freshmen on offense", Satterfield said.
Kentucky coach Mark Stoops met with the media today and, as I saw from Joe Mussatto of SEC Country, he wasn't shy about passing around fault for the dud of an offensive performance against Southern Miss Saturday: 3-13 on 3rd down, 254 total yards, barely more than two yards per carry, etc.
