Zach Klein, Sports Director for WSB-TV joins John and Randy to talk Justin Fields. 

Zach kicks it off by announcing Fields' transfer is still a rumor and there is a slight chance he returns to Athens, but it’s not likely. Randy wants some insight on what they told Fields when he came to Athens and Zach says the competition was open from the beginning, Kirby gave Justin every opportunity to compete with Jake. The reality is that Justin Fields could not beat Jake Fromm for the position.

They talk about Fields reaction after the SEC Championship when he was clearly frustrated with his position. Zach talks about the limited role Fields had this season, but this is/has been Fromms team and thinks Kirby could have used him better throughout the season. Zach talks about the challenges of educating the current crop of CFB players who come in with a sense of entitlement.

Finally, Zach touches on the situation with the UGA baseball player who used a slur to Fields and if he will  use it to transfer.
