Stetson Bennett IV was beside himself after his Georgia Bulldogs beat the Ohio State Buckeyes.
While Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett IV has a proclivity for playing his best football when the stakes are at their highest, he simply could not believe the Dawgs pulled off such a historic comeback over the Ohio State Buckeyes in the Peach Bowl.
For all intents and purposes, Ohio State should have probably won the national semifinal game over the Dawgs. Buckeyes superstar quarterback C.J. Stroud could not have played a better ballgame, yet it was The Mailman who delivered in the clutch once again like he tends to do. In what could have been his final game in Red and Black, Bennett will have one more date in L.A.
While he admitted to playing badly for most of the game, Bennett was at a loss for words when explains how the Dawgs won the game to ESPN’s Marty Smith.
Stetson Bennett IV spoke on Georgia’s monumental comeback over Ohio State
The Legend of The Mailman grows by the nanosecond. The Burlsworth winner and Heisman Trophy finalist is undoubtedly college football’s version of Kurt Warner. While there will be a movie made about his Georgia career, it might be better served as being a Netflix series now. It is as lengthy as it was improbable. Bennett is now one win away from winning back-to-back playoffs…
It may sound utterly blasphemous to say this, but Bennett potentially being a two-time College Football Playoff National Championship-winning quarterback will force his way onto Georgia’s Mount Rushmore. Of course, Max Duggan and the rest of Sonny Dykes’ TCU Horned Frogs will have something to say about that next Monday night. In the meantime, how did UGA win this?!
The one thing I keep going back to is Georgia out-executed Ohio State in the final third of the game. The entire dynamic of the game changed once Marvin Harrison Jr. had to exit it due to injury for Ohio State. Of course, Georgia had to finish the drill without Darnell Washington. Simply put, Bennett led the Dawgs down the field on one of the greatest drives of his Georgia football career.
Yes, it actually happened, but it would be such a shame if Georgia did not beat TCU next Monday.
