McElroy’s comments might not be taken so well in Tuscaloosa. Nonetheless, the former championship-winning quarterback isn’t going to let his connection with Alabama affect his opinions..@GregMcElroy says it’s only a matter of time until Georgia wins a national title under Kirby Smart. pic.twitter.com/ENSo3woofa— SEC Network (@SECNetwork) July 16, 2019McElroy spoke highly of Jake Fromm and his ability to lead Georgia the past two seasons.Fromm is one of the highest-graded prospects heading into this fall. He’s shown great poise in his first two years at the collegiate level.If the Bulldogs are going to win a national championship under Smart, then perhaps this is the year for them to defeat the Crimson Tide.Perhaps, the third time is the charm for Georgia.

(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)There hasn’t been a team that has experienced more heartbreaking losses in college football over the past few years than the Georgia Bulldogs. After losing in overtime to Alabama in the national title game two years ago, they fell short to the Crimson Tide once again in the SEC Championship.Georgia has all the makings of a championship team with Kirby Smart as the head coach. Unfortunately, the program has fallen short to Alabama in the biggest moments possible.All hope isn’t lost for the Bulldogs though, as they’ll enter this fall on a short list of contenders. In fact, former Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy thinks it’s only a matter of time until the program wins the national title.“They’re going to win a national championship,” McElroy said on the SEC Network. “It’s just a matter of if it’s this year, next year, two years from now, or five years from now.”
Candidates include Borge Brende, the former environmental minister of Norway; Carlos Manuel Rodriguez Echandi, the Minister of Environment and Energy of Costa Rica; Shafqat Kakakhel of Pakistan, the Deputy Executive Director of UNEP; Rajendra Pachauri of India, the Director-General of the Energy and Resource Institute; and Achim Steiner of German, the Director-General of the World Conservation Union.Mr. Toepfer’s tenure, which began in February 1998, saw the Programme restructured into five priority areas: environmental assessment and early warning, development of policy instruments, enhanced coordination with environmental conventions, technology transfer and support to Africa, according to the Office of the Secretary-General. Mr. Annan’s office said that Mr. Toepfer, who had previously been Germany’s environmental minister, has also been instrumental in integrating environmental concerns and economic development.
