Kirk Herbstreit says Stetson Bennett IV has to 'get his mojo back' for Florida game
The Georgia Bulldogs are 4-1 at the halfway point of the 2020 season, but there are some concerns for Kirby Smart’s team.
The last 2 games (against Alabama and Kentucky), QB Stetson Bennett IV has thrown 5 total interceptions.
On Tuesday night on ESPN, analyst Kirk Herbstreit said the Bulldogs need Bennett to get his mojo back for this weekend’s game against Florida (via 247Sports):
“The challenge is where are we with Stetson Bennett and the balance of this offense? They could run the ball, but against Florida, they’re going to need to be able to stay up with Kyle Trask,” Herbstreit said Tuesday on ESPN. “That means Bennett is going to have to make plays, and he was. That dude plays with a chip on his shoulder, and he plays with an attitude. Now, he’s thrown five interceptions in the last couple of games.
“He went from being everybody’s favorite son to this guy is a bum. That affects your mindset. That affects who you are. They’ve got to get his mojo back and get his confidence back. I don’t think Florida can play with Alabama. I do think Georgia can, so they’ve got to find a way to get it going this weekend.”
Will Bennett turn things around in Jacksonville? We’ll see what happens on Saturday, but his leash could be pretty short.
