True, Nate. At least a football commit is better than a hoops commit which these days is good for a year. Maybe.
Gotta teach Raider Nation to do the ZEUSSSSS chant. Congrats Zamir!
It’s time for UGA fans to view the QB situation from a 2022 perspective. Stetson is not a walk-on - that was six years ago. Stetson is a starting SEC QB, roughly the same size as Bryce Young, who was third in the nation in passer efficiency, and who beat out the 5-star top-rated QB from the 2018 class for his job. And now Kirby says that Stetson has made great advances since the national championship game. Take all that into account, forget everything you were told about Stetson Bennett in the past, and the clear conclusion is that 2022 Stetson is one of the elite QBs in all of college football. Barring injury, he will not be fighting to hold onto the job this fall.
You’ve got a somewhat undersized UGA inside LB who goes sideline to sideline like a heat-seeking missile and no one cares about the smaller stature - Roquan Smith is a top ten pick. A couple years later you’ve got the exact same thing + character, intelligence and leadership out the wazzoo and Nakobe slides to the third round. What the heck is the matter with these scouts?
Yes indeed. It's good to be Stetson Bennett right now. Heck, it'll probably be awesome to be Stetson Bennett half a century from now!
Consider the Dawgs’ four TEs. They don’t need a lot of depth at WR. Heck, I’m betting that on many occasions they won’t need any WRs in the field!
"All these tight ends have Todd Monken thinking about the rare 14 personnel, which is 1 running back, 4 tight ends, an alignment that almost no one runs in college football." WHAT? Wait, wait a minute. WHAT? This would make the 2022 season so much fun! If you're a 5-10, 180-pound CB, which one of the do you want to draw???
Well, my goodness, he ought to be a first-round pick - he can win championships all by himself! If he’s healthy, whichever team has him automatically gets the trophy. The 31 other teams must all be offering the world to the Jags in order to take Williams with the first pick!
These are quarterly reports because the NCAA rules are so full of minutiae that a few self-reported violations are expected each quarter. If you went through a couple of quarters in a row with no reports, it would appear fishy. The conference responses to these self-reported missteps generally result in things to try to prevent their recurrence, and evidence that the AD covered the rules in a subsequent staff meeting so that coaches are aware of the fine details of the rules.
Stetson's not a walk-on. That was five years ago. Five years ago, Kenneth Walker III was an unknown 2-star high schooler. Now he's one of the first RBs who'll be taken in the draft. Five years ago, Stetson was an unknown 2-star high schooler. Now he's a national champion QB.
Yes, it was a fumble, but it shouldn't have been - it's a weird rule. If a throw that lands behind the point from which it's thrown is a fumble whether the ball was held firmly by the passer or not, why isn't a throw that lands in front of the point from which it's thrown an incompletion whether the ball was held firmly by the passer or not?
There was no way that an E.T. sequel could have rivaled the original or added to its legacy, so Spielberg decided that it wouldn't be made. Likewise, Stetson's star can never be as high as it is right now. It's time for him to mount his horse, look into the camera and say "My work here is done," ride off into an NFL training camp sunset, and wind up as a 10-time all-star and Hall of Famer in the CFL.
How many baby boys in Georgia are going to be named Stetson in the next few years?
The two most iconic sports adages: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” “When you go to the dance, you dance with the one that brung ya.” UGA’s answer to both is Stetson Bennett.
That'd have to be one bodacious bug to take on THAT stomach!
Right. He's amassed those stats on his own; the only help his defense provides him is the fact that the other team's defense has to spend an inordinate amount of time on the field.
Vandagriff would be running the Oklahoma offense??? Ahead of Caleb Williams??? When Brock hasn't even beaten out Carson Beck as the third-string Georgia QB??? I think I'm going to take Kirby Smart's opinion over yours. Kirby has faith in Stetson, and so do I.
I'd love to see Andrew blocking for Nick. Kind of like Isaiah Wynn blocking for Sony!
Self-reporting Level III violations is an inevitable part of administering any college athletic program. If you never had any of these violations, it'd look very suspicious. These violations could involve such things as bumping into a recruited athlete somewhere outside of a designated window of recruitment dates and sharing normal, cordial greetings, or offering to share some of the cookies that Mom sent you with the people who are standing around the cookie jar. The NCAA would often never know about these unless the school self-reported. The school makes a report to their conference and recommends self-imposed minor penalties, the conference typically accepts the school's recommendations, and that's all there is to it.
Had to be tempting to try to recruit him by saying "Here McKitty, Kitty, Kitty."
Multiply all those percentages and you get a 20% chance that UGA runs the table. That sounds a bit low to me, but 11-1 with a loss at Auburn still sets up the SEC Championship Game as a Final Four play-in.
