As Stetson Bennett IV’s quarterback reputation seems to be emerging from the Rodney Dangerfield no respect syndrome—with mention of the Heisman trophy falling latently on his ears—another quarterback of his dimensions has lined up solidly against those who hold the view that the Baron of Blackshear should forget about the notion that he might not be playing football on Sunday in the fall 2023.

I have been given to say that Stet’s dream of playing for the glory to ol’ Georgia for some time has been the fulfilling of a longtime goal but watching him maneuver about the behemoths of his world as he leads his team to victory, has also had me deep into wonderment about the next level.

That is not a concern of his now. He still loves playing for the school he has adored since he was in short pants, engaging in touch games at Herty Field on North campus where UGA’s football beginnings began.
