Stetson Bennett: Georgia QB’s resolve keys national title


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Stetson Bennett might solely consider one factor.

One purpose. One message.

I can’t be answerable for costing Georgia its first national championship in 41 years.

What a depressing factor to suppose, proper? There he was, Georgia’s walk-on quarterback-turned-starter, standing on the sideline with such an terrible mantra working by means of his thoughts. How he bought to that time entails one of many wildest performs you’ll see in a soccer sport.

Within the second half of a decent sport with the national championship on the road, Bennett raced away from strain and, whereas being hit, heaved a move into the air for what gave the impression to be an incompletion. Solely, it wasn’t. Alabama, to the shock of many, recovered the fumble contained in the UGA pink zone and the Crimson Tide scored what was then the go-ahead landing with about 10 minutes left within the sport.
