“I think he’s got a little more confidence,” Smart said. “He didn’t play a perfect game, don’t get me wrong. There are things to clean up. But the last 2 days, he’s been a little more crisp.

“I feel like there’s a monkey off his back.”

Fromm made his first career start last Saturday at Notre Dame, guiding Georgia to a 20-19 victory. Fromm went 16-of-29 for 141 yards with a touchdown and one interception. Not great numbers based on the statistics alone, but the former Houston County star made the plays when it counted, and Georgia squeaked out a road win.

“I really don’t think the expectation changes,” Smart said. “The expectation is that he’s going to play winning football at the quarterback position … I certainly hope his confidence grows, but the expectation doesn’t change.”
