Jacob Eason exits Georgia game with injury

Posted September 03, 2017

"Hate it for Jacob", Smart said of the injury. We didn't know that MI would later go on to prove to be not such a great team.

"He's playing a lot better right now than I remember him past year", Smart said.

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound Fromm, a one-time Alabama commitment and a four-star prospect from Houston County, drew praise from Smart soon after arriving on campus as an early enrollee for his work in the film room and his ability to lead. Jake Fromm entered the game as Eason's replacement.

He responded by connecting on 10 of 15 passes for 143 yards and a touchdown. The wide receivers and tight ends were blocking for the running backs, doing a good job of sealing the edge when Chubb or Michel ran a sweep. Once Georgia jumped up 21-0, the game-plan shifted to ball control.

Where were you the moment Appalachian State pulled off one of the true college football stunners of all time? Quarterback Taylor Lamb scored on a 20-yard run with 5:41 to go.

A 43-yard field goal by Michael Rubino with 26 seconds remaining capped the scoring.

The Bulldogs were reminded about the Mountaineers historic upset at No. 5 MI 10 years ago this weekend with video highlights in the weight room and heard about its near-upset losing in overtime at Tennessee last year to scare them straight.

The Appalachian State-Michigan game just so happened to be the first college football game broadcast by the brand new Big Ten Network.

Ruling parties win in Goa, Delhi, AP bypolls
Parkash, who had won Bawana seat on AAP's ticket, deserted his party to join BJP just before the municipal elections in February. The Congress, which had mounted a concerted campaign for revival in Delhi came third after BJP in the Bawana contest.

It looked as though it would be a similar defensive battle to App State's opening game at Tennessee last season that went to overtime when both teams exchanged three-and-out drives. "He's one of our brothers and we're going to rally him and he's going to be good". Eason got plenty of experience last season, coming in for Greyson Lambert in the opener against North Carolina and starting the next 12 games, and how much he learned will be put on display starting tonight.

Fortunately for Georgia, it has Jake Fromm to fill in for Eason while the starter is sidelined.

If Georgia is going to do what many have predicted and win the SEC East, then a freshman quarterback could be the one to lead them. He was 1 of 3 for 4 yards.

"(Fromm) showed tremendous poise for a freshman in how he handled the situation", said Javon Wims, who caught Fromm's first career touchdown pass. He led Georgia to a touchdown in his second series. He ran for 10 touchdowns. He promptly stepped in and hit his first two passes of the game for 8 yards each to Isaac Nauta and Mecole Hardman to secure Georgia's initial first down of the night not by penalty. In 2014, Georgia had 28 sacks and 71 TFLs. Another drive ended at the Georgia 25 as the clock ended on the first half. They like to run the ball and use the clock, shortening the game instead of speeding it up with more plays.

Georgia running backs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel: It feels like these two should be grouped together.

The Mountaineers will now head back to Boone as they prepare to face Savannah State in their home opener at Kidd Brewer Stadium on September 9 at 3:30 p.m. "It's not who's travelling to Notre Dame or any of that".

RUSHING-Appalachian St., Lamb 10-66, J.Moore 13-38, Upshaw 7-17, Z.Thomas 1-13, Mal.Williams 1-2.

Statistically, Georgia was paced by Chubb's 15 rushes for 96 yards and two touchdowns, while Michel had 16 rushes for 87 yards and one touchdown. Lamb, the son of Mercer coach Bobby Lamb, completed 18 of 27 passes for 128 yards and ran for 66 yards and a touchdown.
