ATHENS - Molly Hatchet wrote a song about Jake Fromm‍'s off season. 

Flirtin' with Disaster. 

Two trips to the hospital for non-football injuries is certainly flirting with disaster. Serious? No. Am I judging? No. 

But this is the sort of thing that makes folks freak out pretty good. 


Meanwhile, Dawg Post has been told that the break is on Fromm’s non-throwing left hand, and that the Warner Robins native is not expected to miss any time. Kirby Smart confirmed that the injury is "insignificant", and that Fromm is already throwing.  

Still… how Georgia is this? How many bizarre things happen in the dead of the summer?

Sony Michel had a very serious hand injury a few years ago thanks to an ATV wreck. 

Isaiah Crowell was arrested on felony weapons charges this time of year in 2012.

Damon Evans…

Rivals reported the news of Fromm’s injury Wednesday evening, and the panic button was hit from there. Understandably. 

If voting took place today for the Heisman Trophy (HA!), Las Vegas says that Fromm wouldn’t win the award, but would be in NYC for the presentation. Fromm is the first UGA QB to win the SEC since D.J. Shockley. He’s got a squeaky-clean image, but he’s doing his best to give UGA fans a heart attack this off-season. 

Maybe he should stay away from extracurricular activities for a little bit. 

I can only wonder what Kirby Smart’s conversation with his quarterback went like today. Probably not that bad, but not that great, either. 

It is unfair. Fromm is in the spotlight in ways that very few others understand (Aaron Murray, Jacob Eason, Matthew Stafford, D.J. Shockley). And the spotlight is brighter now than for any of those other men because of UGA’s success right now, and the reality of social media in 2018.

If this is as bad as it gets for Fromm and the Dawgs on the injury front in 2018, then mission accomplished. 

Boys will be boys, but it is far from ideal (even with how minor this is) for this to be happening once more.
