Love SEC media days. Kirby smart was just asked about his stacked qb situation including Jacob Eason. Who is at Washington

A quick check of Jacob Eason’s Instagram shows us how much he’s enjoying life now that he’s back home in Washington as a Washington Huskies quarterback. He’s been out on the water with friends. The boys. He’s already dressed for the Washington spring game. He’s moving on from his Georgia quarterback days now that Jake Fromm owns that job that he inherited when Eason went down in the first game of 2017 against App State. Eason transferred in February!
That didn’t stop a print reporter today from asking Kirby Smart about his quarterback battle heading into camp between Eason, Fromm and Justin Fields. That’s right, a question about how the Washington QB fits into Kirby’s plan. Folks, I get that it’s the summer and people go brain dead for like 3.5 months and then get themselves in order around August 15, but this is just inexcusable from someone who gained a credential to SEC Media Days.
And it’s normally TV people who ask the dumb questions. Normally the airhead TV guy who likes to tell people how much he knows about football. Now the disappointing part of this story is that we don’t have video – yet – of the guy asking the question. I need that and I need Kirby’s reaction before the end of the day. Someone has it.
A PRINT REPORTER!! HAHAHAHAHAHA.
.@KirbySmartUGA just asked by a print reporter what's it like to have a deep QB depth chart with Eason, Fromm and Fields. Good to see reporters keeping up with current events haha

How does someone with a credential not know Jacob Eason transferred?!

Thoughts and prayers to the reporter who asked the question about Jacob Eason being in the QB room at Georgia.
I'd say RIP to his mentions, but let's get real, he's not on Twitter.
