Jarrett Guarantano once again wasn’t asked to do a whole lot in this game, and while he got off to a rough start and wasn’t making great reads at the beginning, he got better as the game went on and seem to gain some confidence in himself. He made a solid deep throw to Josh Palmer for the Vols’ first touchdown of the game, and he didn’t turn the ball over once against a Georgia defense that had forced eight turnovers in four games prior. He wasn’t exactly impressive, but he helped give the Vols a chance.
Like Nathanael said, Guarantano wasn’t asked to do a lot against Georgia’s defense on Saturday. However, when he was asked to make a play, he did. Guarantano delivered a nice pass to Josh Palmer for a touchdown and made some impressive throws to Jauan Jennings and Marquez Callaway. The most impressive part about Guarantano’s outing is that he didn’t turn the football over against a Georgia defense that had forced eight turnovers in its first four games. Going forward, I want to see the coaching staff trust Guarantano more and let him take more shots down field.
