Jake Fromm Discusses Playing In A Hostile LSU Environment


Georgia (6-0, 4-0 SEC) held a two-hour practice on Wednesday, running in full pads, utilizing both the indoor practice facility and the outdoor fields.

As UGA prepares for a rowdy atmosphere at LSU, sophomore quarterback Jake Fromm knows it will be a challenge to operate his offense this Saturday in Baton Rouge.

And though Fromm has never experienced a game in Death Valley, he’s heard stories about the iconic stadium and its fans.

“I heard it’s incredible; nothing short of an unbelievable football atmosphere,” Fromm said. “I’m excited for my opportunity to go play in there and excited for everybody else.”

Fromm mentioned that for some, such an atmosphere can cause players to up their game. The Warner Robins native, however, says that does not make much of a difference for him.

“It motivates some people to play better, but for me it doesn’t matter if I play there or go play on a dirt field out in the middle of nowhere,” said Fromm. “I’m playing the game I love. Football is football, no matter who you’re playing in front of.”

Kirby Smart Talks LSU Environment

Tiger Stadium is a venue that Kirby Smart is rather familiar with. Aside from acting as an assistant at LSU in 2004, Smart coached there 4 times between 2007-15 with Alabama. In his 4 visits to Baton Rouge, Alabama won 3 times.

“Our team is fired up for the opportunity to go play in an awesome place to play a football game,” said Smart. “We know it will be a tough atmosphere. We’ve got to do a good job of focusing and concentrating on things that allow you to play well.

We’ve got to have the behaviors that allow you to be successful in tough environments. That’s what playing in the SEC is all about.”
