    Recruiting, coaching changes, spring practices, schedules, etc...

    It's officially the offseason now.

    Jacob Eason transferring to Washington. He'll sit the year but they'll be fine with Browning back for another season.

    Chris Petersen will have fun working with Eason in 2019, definitely has a bigger arm than Browning.

    Will another program manage to unseat Kansas as D1's greatest embarrassment?

    Kevin Sumlin will be the head coach at Arizona. Excellent hire for them.

    Last time Sumlin had a QB as good as Khalil Tate, he won the Heisman

    To say that I’m pissed off is an understatement. Great hire.

    Next year tOSU plays at TCU, Penn St and Michigan St. Which of these would you pick as the most likely place they would lose?

    TCU. That team is going to be so good and Amon G. is a tough place to play.

    Michigan State is a distant third for me. I'm not sure about Penn State or TCU.

    Michigan St.- They return a lot, specifically the backfield with Lewerke and LJ Scott, plus the game is in mid November on grass.

    Conference games are tough but TCU is going to be the Big 12 favorite and better than this years team.

    Smart call on Eason. No point remaining on Georgia team with Fromm starting for 2 more seasons and a high recruit coming in as well. He's got 2 years left and Browning is a senior next season.

    GP, I’m not seeing the Sumlin news anywhere. It’s just speculation.

    Khalil Tate is the truth, Kevin Sumlin is going to ball out with him.

    Sparty is the team I'm most worried about. You just know that tOSU/Penn St will be an 8pm game as well.

    My too early Top 10 for next season:

    And, the 2018 #1 dual threat QB Justin Fields (#2 OA) is coming to Athens too. Would be an extremely crowded QB room if Eason stayed.

    Fromm's job isn't safe. I don't see anything special in him. I think Fields is an EE so he'll be there for spring.

    I guess Arizona state law requires a 10 day wait from day of hiring to post about the position being filled with jobs like these. They applied for a waiver so it'll be announced soon.

    Totally disagree, I think he's going to be a top 5 pick

    I think Fromm will be a really good college QB. But as for being a top 5 pick or even a first rounder? He's got a lot of work to do, and he has to be a lot more consistent. He reminds me a lot of Aaron Murray (this is more of a coincidence than just comparing him to another Georgia QB) in that his measurables and athleticism leave a lot to be desired with respect to the NFL. That said, there are plenty of NFL QBs his size or smaller.

    Fromm better be ready to go next year, that's for sure. Fields also has the DT ability that might be the difference in getting passed Alabama. Kirby loves Fromm though, so he's going to have an extremely long leash. That and I'm sure Kirby wants to avoid starting a true freshman in each of his first three years at Georgia as much as possible.

    Eason was gone the night that Fromm beat Notre Dame on the road. There were rumblings that Fromm had much better command of the offense as early as fall camp.
