The Georgia Bulldogs sit at 9-1, have already won the SEC East and a spot in the SEC Championship Game against Alabama, and currently hold down the No. 5 spot in the College Football Playoff standings.

Outside of the Dawgs' trip to Baton Rouge and that loss to LSU, the 2018 season has gone pretty well.

However, in college football contentment breeds slipups.

Former UGA tight end Randy McMichael pointed out a few definite trouble spots on The Midday Show Tuesday; areas about the Georgia team that frustrate him.

"The only thing that frustrate's the hell out of me is this quarterback rotation," said McMichael. "That and short-yardage is killing me."

What's bothering the former Dawg about the QB rotation?

"Let him play," said McMichael. "He hasn't played a lot of ball. He's still a young quarterback; I'm talking about Justin Fields here. Do him like Coach [Mark] Richt did D.J. [Shockley] and David Greene. Let him play a series at least. 

"He's too young for you to bring in and think he's just going to jump-start something. Let him play. And then when Jake's [Fromm] got it going, leave him in the game."

McMichael said it's irritating to him that Kirby Smart and Jim Chaney are over-coaching. It was a cluster in the red zone against Auburn, according to McMichael.

Rick Kamla asked McMichael if it was a lack of creativity with Chaney that bothered him in terms of his issues with UGA at the goalline.

"No, it's a lack of moving somebody off the ball," said McMichael. "Go whip somebody. Look at the Florida game. That was unbelievable; and then, that was also game-planning.

Kamla and McMichael agreed that MeCole Hardman's lack of involvement irritates them.

"Can we get this guy the ball," asked McMichael. "Every time he touches the ball, it just seems like he's going to score."
