Georgia’s career passing leader Aaron Murray is ready to crown Stetson Bennett IV as the greatest Bulldog quarterback of all time.

It wasn’t so long ago that Stetson Bennett IV was Georgia’s underestimated backup quarterback. Now he’s a national champion and an SEC champion with his sights set on adding a second national title to the Bulldogs’ trophy cabinet.

He’s also the greatest of all time for the Dawgs, according to former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murry.

“Not only is Stetson Bennett going to NYC, he has moved into GOAT status at UGA,” Murray tweeted. “He is the greatest QB in Georgia history.”

Murray owns Georgia’s career passing mark with 13,166 yards. His 121 passing touchdowns are by far the most in Bulldog history. He knows what great quarterback play looks like in Athens.

Matthew Stafford may want have a word about who the most talented Georgia passer in history is, but Bennett has certainly achieved things that few or no other Dawg QBs have managed.

Bennett brought Georgia a national championship in the most difficult era to win a title, overcoming the odds in the College Football Playoff en route to the trophy.

Now this year he led the Bulldogs to their first 13-0 record. Georgia has only had two other undefeated campaigns in the last 100 years, going 12-0 en route to the 1980 national championship and 11-0 for the 1946 title.

Bennett already set the record for the most victories in a season for Georgia. That was getting 14 in 2021. He’s a couple of wins in the College Football Playoff this year away from setting a new wins record.

Delivering a second championship would pretty much make Murray’s assertion undebatable.
