Georgia Should Name Jacob Eason its Starting Quarterback

Georgia’s spring game reaffirmed what many of us already knew: Jacob Eason should be the starting quarterback for the Bulldogs in 2016. This comment is almost certain to raise a few eyebrows. After all, Greyson Lambert went 10-2 as the starter for UGA last season. In addition, Brice Ramsey – the backup quarterback last fall – was solid in the spring game, completing 16-of-25...

Kirby Smart doesn’t want credit for ridiculous new Georgia Law

Georgia Bulldogs new head football coach Kirby Smart has been in the news recently after a public records law was changed.
